1998 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan

Review

I love this car, however keeping it on the road has not been the cheapest of ventures. The head controllers, which control the A/C temp cost about $1000 a piece and the car has two of them, my radiator light is always on after much tampering, and the Air Bag light is always on, which could be the result of a $701 part. Last fall, 2007, the car was being driven from Memphis to Atlanta and the transmission gave out. A $3,000 fix, there was a leak in the A/C Tubing and that was around $80- $90, the way things are connected seemed random. I had a fuse blow out and it knocked out my radio, my interior lights, my automatic door locks, and my fog lights. Love to car, just high maintenance.

Favorite Features

Drives smoothly and is a blast, just enough power to satiate a craving but not enough to completely trash your gas mileage. Very comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

Very expensive to maintain, lots of places don't even know how to go about routine repairs so it takes them a long time to do simple things like changing headlights.
