1999 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan


I bought it used for $20,000 with
14,000 mi.It drove & handled
great & had pep.The features were
outstanding.But somehow, the constant
mechanical problems tend to overshadow
everything else. As a new mom, this
car is not appropriate. The back seat
is small and there is no storage. The
cup holders stink and the glove
compartment even more so. It starts
very rough in cold whether(40s). I am
on my 4th bose stereo because it
constantly cuts out. The check light
is on constantly and no problems can
be detected. I am on my 3rd set of
expensive tires due to cupping and
slow leaks. I now have 73,000 miles
and will trade before warranty runs
out even w/ neg. equity

Best Features

The leather (heated) seats are very nice and so is the sunshade in the rear window. The tinted mirrors are great for night driving. It sill looks great and does have great power when passing.

Worst Features

Work on the mechanicals and the wheels, please. This car is so expensive to fix. I would be even more furious if I bought this car new. Where is the luxery in going to the dealership! Car hold no resale value.
