Yes. Stay away, especially from the earlier years. Electrical glitches
and head gasket problems are very common. The later (2000-2001?) cars
are better, but, typical GM, get the car done right, time to kill it.
The bad product years have ruined the car's reputation... Catera is
relatively cheap for this reason.
The Catara AKA OMEGA in Diesel is a good vehicle save for the
electronics. Oh... right the Diesel engine is a BMW.
Avoid the Catara they're nothing but money pits waiting to happen. If
you want a Caddy but proven one's STS's Deville's etc. If money
wasn't an issue the new CTS-V would be in my driveway.
Pay more initially you'll save in the long term (easier said than
done, I know).
