2000 Catera and 14 previous Cadillacs, Mercedes E320 Cabrio
The Catera has been critically blasted for many things, from reliability to it's adds at the time. It all boils down to GM and it's attitude towards it's customers. The adds at that time actually told little about the car and just tried luring customers with a silly cartoon and street juggling clowns. NO substance of what the car was. They obviously haven't learned a thing over the years. Doing away with car lines that made them great over decades, buying other brands and then ruining those brands, to finally bankruptcy. The latest ads for the Chevy Colorado is nothing more than an example of what they think of the American people. Pictures of a guy next to a Colorado and a generic looking sedan getting a group of women, children and then bearded men to pick which guy is more appealing based on the vehicle he's standing next to! What a way to buy a vehicle! The only thing in these commercials showing actual merit for the vehicle is the end where the Motor Trend truck of the year award is displayed.... Nothing is stated about what the truck can do. No payload, towing, or information about the economy of running the vehicle. GM is really good a something though, ruining good products through greed.
