1998 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan

Review

This vehicle has a safe, well controlled ride that inspires confidence. It is a little expensive to maintain (ie, tires, brakes every 40,000)if you drive alot of miles. It has been very reliable. Maintainence is important with this car!!! I have had several German cars and this 1 is no different. Early models 97's early 98's had some electrical issues. If buying used look for late 98 or newer. Car rivals small BMW, Mercedes if you get one without eletrical glitches. Excellent room comfort and ride. Good used car buy resale is poor due to early eletrical issues. Recall Out for timing belt issue. Be safe change timing belt every 75,000miles.

Favorite Features

Interior room, firm controlled highway ride. Smooth responsive engine. Quality of vehicle when proper maintained very reliable through 85,000 plus miles, bought off lease with 18,000 miles when purchased. Very Good Service through Cadillac Network.

Suggested Improvements

As with any American Company vehicle get initial vehicle launch right the 1st time. Early models tainted view of later models with good quality control. Use more common tire size, current size 225/55 16 maybe switch to 225/60 16 more available and less expensive.
