Coolant Leaks From Water Pump and Radiator on Cadillac Eldorado

At 70,000 miles head gaskets were replaced also water pump radiator thermostat hoses. At the cost of $3000. This car is the worst car I ever owned. I dislike this car so much will not buy GM (Garbage Motors) as long as I live. GM should change the name of Cadillac div to Nickel & Dime Div.
