Great until it wasn't.

Bought it brand new. A few years later we noticed smoke coming under the hood. Leaking oil badly. Got that fixed\ for $800. then the engine seized up. Decided to trade it in and was offered only $400. I would never buy a used one, and that's all there are. You'll be sorry you bought this car made by Opel

Decent performance, flawed otherwise

by Brandon on Jun 03, 2018

I bought a '97 Catera USED in 2010 and the car had around 50,000 miles on it when I purchased it. I thought I was getting a steal with mileage that low.....turns out I was robbed for my money. The car had issues from the day I bought it. Eventually found out the almost all the engine gaskets were leaking (valve cover, oil pan and oil pump) and one of the leaks caused oil to drip onto one of the exhaust components causing smoke to come from under the hood. Then on a long trip the distributor cap partially failed leaving me with a cylinder that wasn't firing. By the end of the ownership of the car I believe the transmission was starting to fail. Also, there is a well-known issue with the oil cooler that causes them to fail and destroy the engine and the timing belt that must be changed every 50,000 miles or it could wear and kill the engine also. Traded it in at around 90,000 miles. When it was running properly it was a smooth car that felt good at higher highway speeds but that is pretty much the only positive it had.

This car has gotten me around for a little over a year and even though it's still running strong I'd love to sell and get a newer car.
