2001 Cadillac Catera 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


My very first car turned out to be a lemon and a stressor on my mother.
Seemed like a nice, clean car that wouldn't cost me a lot because it was a Cadillac and Cadillac's usually are pretty dependable.
But this car, just was an EPIC FAIL.
Now I'm trading it in and getting this burden off of me and my mother!
Engine repair costed $2000, then the brakes, then tires, then transmission (which has to be injected into engine which is even more money) sunroof works when it wants to, back wheel drive stinks (especially in snow and ice), power locks on driver side went out, and on top of all of that, CRAPPY gas mileage...please don't ever buy this car...all of these cars should be set on fire!!

Best Features

Roomy interior. Comfortable, leather, heated seats. Fun to drive.

Worst Features

Everything. If they decided to bring this car back for the 2012 year (which I doubt, just giving a scenario), they have a lot of improvements ahead of them.
