Not Worth It
By got used on
1997 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan
I bought the car 2 years ago with low
mileage. Since then, the tension
pulley for the timing belt let go
damaging the engine (fortunately under
recall), needed new coil, spark plugs
and wires ($1,300), new tires (bought
inexpensive Cooper tires at $795),
needed new brakes (not done at the
dealer at $500), and now all 24 valves
are being replaced, along with the
timing belt that was replaced last
year ($2,700). The fog lamps don't
work, the passenger client control
doesn't work and the radio doesn't get
any AM stations. While fun to drive,
it has been a horrible car because of
the repairs and its cost.
It is fun to drive when it is running.
None, because thankfully, they don't
make this car anymore.
