1998 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan


Two weeks after I bought the car I found out the heat on the passenger side didn't work. went to get it fixed needed to replace valve cover gaskets bcuz of oil in the spark plugs $1,000. Rear caliper went out over $400 to fix, regulator in rear windows went out $800 for parts alone, short in electrical system moon roof opens and closes when it wants to. Radio and interior lights only work when key is in off position. All of the screws on the entire car have fallen out (i.e. the backs of the seats have fallen off the front bumper had to be re-screwed on the fog lights have fallen out some sort of blower has fallen out, the screws allowing the glove box to open and close has broken) cont'd next box

Best Features

the horn doesn't work, the left turn signal doesn't turn off, the radiator has a hole in it, something is wrong with the transmission, the trunk opener and the fuel door buttons don't work. There is a button in the gear shift that has to be pushed in order to get the car out of park. cont in next box

Worst Features

Muffler needs to be fixed over $500 front end needs repair(car has not been in any crash) rear bearing gone bad. Hard to find shops to work on it because of the German engine Had the car 24months I refuse to fix it any more, looking for new car. Stay away from this car at all costs. Worst car ever!
