1999 Cadillac Catera from North America
Run! It's not worth a third of the cost!
The driver airbag sensor shorted out two months after I purchased the car used. After being "repaired" it continues to short.
The water pump went out. I had it towed in only then to find out it had been recalled.
The gasket seals leaked. I had it serviced. Two day later, I was back because it continued to leak and smoke. The third time, the dealership kept it the whole day (work day).
One week after repairs to the gasket seals, my service engine light is back on. There were no engine problems noted on my diagnostic when I left from the last repair.
When this car is problem free, which is averaging about 1 week per month, it runs like a dream. It's powerful, comfortable, and handles like a true sports car. Unfortunately, I don't get much of a chance to enjoy those aspects.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

It sounds like you just had bad luck. I've had this car for 90,000 miles and it runs like brand new. the thing wrong with it is that the headlight is out. I also had some problems with the lighters, but that's not a problem for someone who knows a thing or two about cars.
