1997 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan

Review

Purchased new as a leftover in 4/98 -- now I know why it didn't sell. Worst car I ever drove. Nothing but problems. Leaks, lights blinking for no reason, broken sensors, broken door locks, broken trunk locks, hoses, ignition, etc. coupled with truly TERRIBLE, indifferent service by Lindsay Cadillac in Virginia -- all of which made for a miserable owenership experience. This is why Cadillac will not exist in 10 years. Also: poor storage space, limited options on stereo system (corrected in later models), poor rear visibility.

Favorite Features

My wife and I had a weekly bet on what kind of loaner car I would get. I usually won. Given the ongoing reliability crisis, asking for my favorite feature is like asking Mrs. Lincoln for a review of the play.
