1997 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan


I stopped counting Cadilacs at my fifteenth. This Catera I bought used has
been very reliable and provided excellent service; so far. It has a crisp,
taylored feel to it which is nice. The handling and performance and fuel
economy are excellent. I normally use premium, but I have been buying
regular gas for it and it has performed well, averaging 24 mpg. There are no
squeeks or rattles and it has a solid quality feel: for a small car it does not
feel cheap. While it is not as luxurious as other Cadillacs I own, it does have
all the Cadillac features you would want the car to have. My overall feel of the
car is that it has been very undervalued due to its plain styling.

Best Features

Fold down rear seats. Acceleration, handling, and fuel economy..

Worst Features

Good thing they did n't give it better more dramatic styling: they would have been more expensive.
