1997 Cadillac Catera from North America
Flush, the sound of money going down the drain!
A month after I purchased the car I hit a pothole and dented the alloy rim. $400 for the rim and $120 for a new tire I was on the road again.
Six months later the electrical unit inside the car that controls the heat and ac broke costing me over $500 to replace.
The timing belt snapped and destroyed the engine, Cadillac issused a recall and refunded the money, but as a college student it was tough waiting on the check to arrive.
Around 100,000 miles the transmission went out and was replaced and now 18 months later it is on the verge of going out again.
Just recently the blower for the A/C unit went out leaving me without Air during the summer in a black car in the South.
Just recently the engine block cracked. I am selling the car for salvage because that is pretty much all that it is worth at this point.
Buy this car if you prefer handing your $ over to the repair shop instead of actually flushing it down the toilet.
I will never buy another GM automobile because of the experience that I have had with this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Yeah I have a Cadillac Catera and I have a problem with the Fog lights not coming on. They did when I first got it, but they don't now. And I have a problem with the shocks, they make a loud noise. And it really bugs me.. Another thing is that when I put my foot on the brakes it has a hard tug to the left and that's not what it is suppose to do. And the fog light in the front is very loose and I don't know how to fix that.. Kt23.
