Engine noise

(1999 Cadillac Catera)
Looking to purchase a 99 catera. Before i do i wanted to research a engine noise the seller told me of. Seller told me the noise is only when the car is first started and dies off when engine has warmed up. 99 catera 110,000 miles, just trying to find out if this would be a wise purchase or will lead to more serious problems thanks

You don't say what kind of noise it has. I'm assuming it's related to an oil pressure or delivery problem or it's a piston or bearing noise, and I wouldn't buy the car not knowing exactly what's wrong. The car is old enough to have problems and maybe you don't want to inherit them. These engines are expensive to fix.
You could have it checked by a GM specialist, here's a directory link for you:
