2001 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this Cadillac very inexpensive with 112,000 miles and it was nearly perfect for a year. It is a NICE car! It is definitely the nicest car I've ever owned but it has taught me how to be a mechanic. I had some problems with Actuator motor on the AC, automatic levelers, ticking noise caused by me pinching a wire going to the hazard lights. It took me forever to figure that one out. Recently Motor went bad at 137,000 miles after a timing belt broke. Interference motor, terrible idea.
I bought the updated replacement motor. Hoping it will be around a long time now. Still love the car and it's been worth the money. My biggest advice is by the DEALER manuals and work on it.
Comfort, power, looks
Get rid of the interference motor. Make parts more accessible
