How's it going everyone? I own a beautiful 99 Seville sts, but my wife is looking for a car and ran across a catera. A 2001 to be exact. I know these aren't very common, at least in my area, and I don't really know much about them. Do they have a good reputation for being reliable? And safe? I've read a few reviews, but I trust the caddy guys here and I always learn a lot from the greats here.

Re: catera or no catera, that is the question
"The Cadillac Catera was a mid-size, entry-level luxury sedan manufactured from 1997–2001 in Rüsselsheim, Germany, as a rebadged variant of the Opel Omega = In North America, a badge engineered version of the Omega B and Omega B FL was marketed as the Cadillac Catera = Omega B FL (1999–2003)". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opel_Omega
Are you or do you know a mechanic fluent in Opel?
Have you looked at parts prices and availability?
I would vote no.
