1998 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan


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.

Best 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.

Worst Features

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.
