1998 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan

Review

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 sold here.

Favorite Features

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.

Suggested Improvements

Although the point is now moot: better cupholders; curtain airbags; better antenna; a sport wagon version.
