an under rated car
By sgm on
1998 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan
one of the better German built cars
that I have driven. Compares favorably
with Audi. Have had two. Handling and
steering are the best qualities. It is
true that the motor could have used a
few more ponies, but who cares @
220kph+ with great control.
If you are going to buy one, make sure
it is under 7 yrs. or 160,000 km. or
make sure that the cam tensioner
pulleys, timing belt and water pump
have been changed under the GM recall.
Otherwise, if they fail, at power, the
engine is worth far more than the car
The seats are very comfortable. Even
more so than the new CTS. The
windshield seems lower and allows for
good frontal visibility. Fuel mileage
is average @ 32/Imperial gallon.
