My uncle leased one and loves : it. I personally think it's too small to be a Caddy. They remind me of : Caddilac's cheap attempt to make a small Caddilac from the 80's called : a Cimmeron. In my opinion it was just a glorified Chevy Caviler. Fortunately for Caddilac, they realized the huge mistake they made with the Cimmeron. They however do learn from their mistakes and seem to have a winner with the Catera. The reason for the size, is to attract the younger buyers that associate the Deville and El Dorado with Caddilac's average buyer - someone roughly in their 70s!!! The car has a good engine, great interior, and a nice look! It also seems to have a good customer base that seem to all love it based on some of the previous posts! Give it a chance - the American car manufacturers have come a long way - this may be one of the last "catch up" steps that they need to take!! bill
