good luck to the ones that own them now go sell quickly and buy a real cadillac..
sorry just wanted to vent on those pos cars
as you most likely know the Cadillac Catera is an Opel Omega. Thank goodness it's not a "REAL" P.O.S. Cadillac.
The Omega is the "bread and butter" car for lots of Europeans and it does the job just right. Like any self respecting GM car it has it's quirks, but overall it is a pretty decent car especially after the changes for MY 2000.
So many of the Cateras are in the hands of owners with very little money to maintain them properly. As with most of the European cars, that's NOT the way to do it. In that case you are better off driving a Japanese car.
Some young hot shots also think the Catera is a racing machine, which needs to be lowered and outfitted with 22inch rims. Not the right use either for this car.
I maintain my Catera like my wife's Audi A4 and like my other European cars and it is a very reliable and enjoyable car without idiotic monster tires, performance chips or furt-can mufflers.
Talking about a REAL Cadillac, may I mention the Northstar engine?
That's just a little reminder about problems in "REAL" Catteracs.
