1997 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan


I was excited when I purchased the
Cadillac that "Zigged when other cars
Zagged", but the car has spent so much
time in the shop I haven't done much
Zigging or Zagging. I've gone through

them...I guess that running the A/C and
CD player at the same time is a no-no),
two stes of brake pads, a new fuel
pump, and a number of minor problems in
my three years of ownership. This
wouldn't be too terrible if each repair

Best Features

Interior! A roomy comfortable ride, that is great for around town and even better on long trips.

Worst Features

1. Less expensive service. 2. Put the window controls on the windows, not the center console. 3. Have the dealership treat you well whetther you are under the factory warranty or not.
