Although it’s called a Cadillac, the Catera is actually a re-badged Opel (Vauxhall). Don’t believe us? Just Google Opel Omega. The Catera is quite literally the definition of a re-badge model. Cadillac didn’t even bother to change the grill or any of the lights. The V6 engine was developed in England and makes 200 horsepower, which doesn’t sound all that bad, but the Catera is heavy. The GM automatic transmission is slow and clunky too. The Catera was plagued with epic reliability issues. It was never a good car to begin with, but the fact that Cadillac simply slapped their badge on something so horrendous angered people more than the actual car itself.
