We just bought a used 2001 Cadillac Catera base model, After purchase we hear this car is German made and basically a flop of a car for cadillac, parts are hard to fine, repairs are pricey, etc. We are trying to fix on our own, but can't find any info about how to replace, etc. Only info we get online is regarding the Cadillac CTS which replaced the Catera made from 1997-2001 Any suggestions?
