I bought my 98 Catera new. I have 37k
on it. Problems: recall on the
timing belt and a minor coolant leak.
I am sorry that Cadillac discontinued
this vehicle. This car had many good
reviews at its inception; only to be
followed by negative press in the area
of reliability (mainly electrical
issues). I have NOT experienced ONE
electrical problem; nor would I say the
car is unreliable. To the contrary,
the car has been excellent. I think
this car is extremely underrated and as
a result, a bargain. I would
certainly buy one again. I wish Opel
Good cornering; good acceleration in
the passing lane; Lots of room in the
rear seats; very good reliability thru
37k; classy appearance; IIHS Crash Test
Rating - Good; heavy car.
Although the point is now moot: better
cupholders; curtain airbags; better
antenna; a sport wagon version.
