Good Sporty Luxry Car — Has all the bells and wistles. Leather seats, heated seats, sun roof, tinted windows, amazing sound system. Handles good, car is solid, not much plastic. Has lots of power, being a sports model sedan/family car. Lots of space/storage. Folding seats.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Good — Thi car handles nicely, has lots of power, great sound system and a quiet ride. It is fun to drive. Heated seats are very nice in the winter. Air conditioning works great. Really like the fold down rear seats for storage.

Responsive, Solid And Low To The Ground Feel, Plenty Of Punch And Extras — The Catera lives up to it's European heritage yet offers the sophisticated styling and comfort of Cadillac.
