Great car for the money.

Great starter car for my teen. Didn't cost a lot and engine is great. The inside needs a cleaning but otherwise for a 22yr old car it's good. Paint is awesome for the age.


It drive well.

This was a great car, it was enough room. The price was great. The mileage was awesome. Only downfall was the year of the car. I want a more up to date vehicle


Mechanic's Nightmare

This is one of those cars that has to be maintained. Most GMC products, buy it used, and f it hasn't been kept up, you can replace the parts that are busted or worn and usually come out ahead. Not the Catera. If it hasn't been maintained, everything suffers, paint being the exception. The engine is solid, but one thing goes wrong, and the whole engine degrades. In 2016, I can't recommend buying a used Catera.
