Not a real Cadillac
By dcv on


2000 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan


The car drives like a dream, however, the check engine light will not go off. No one can find the problem. The rear middle seat belt locks and cannot be used. The gas mileage is horrible. A new fuel pump at 70K cost me $917. If you try to run anything except premium fuel, you will find yourself in a world of hurt. My advice is to buy a real Cadillac (Deville, for example). Better mileage, better service. Cadillac needs to stand behind this product and make it right. I sure wish I had bought a Deville!

Best Features

Leather seating, BOSE stereo system, cargo room in the trunk.

Worst Features

With the recurring problems, Cadillac needs to recall these cars and resolve the issues. Of course, that requires training the service techs on how to work on these cars.
