1997 Cadillac Catera 3.0 V6 from North America
An amazing vehicle - regardless of what people say
When we purchased the vehicle we quickly noticed that the air conditioning wasn't working. So we got that fixed, along with the emergency brake cable and the back brakes (VERY EXPENSIVE).
The sun roof doesn't work anymore - turns out it'll be $1100, but they will be able to do it for cheaper.
The Oil light sensor needed to be replaced - turns out the mechanic replaced the wrong sensor, so we ended up getting two for the price of one.
This vehicle is a great, fuel efficient Cadillac. Especially with the price of gas (being 1.50/Litre), you can get at least 500 kms to a tank.
The leather seats and the outstanding Bose sound system have really proved to be the best features in this vehicle.
I really don't care what people think about these vehicles, when driven properly and cared for accordingly these things can really last. There is only 95000 ORIGINAL kilometers on my Cadillac, and let me tell you, they are well driven KM's.
I have only seen about 3-4 Catera's in my city, and all of them have withstood the test of time. There have no rust, or any form of body wear.
I have no reason to get rid of this vehicle, I mean, why should I? The motor has PLENTY of life left in it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
