problem #2

Dec 032006

Catera 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
I have a 2000 Catera. The head lights had an internal failure because of the material used to support the lamp holder in the lights disintergrated over a 6 year period due to sun heat. This failure caused the internal lamp holders to fall and prevent the lights from illuminating the road at night at highway speed.

Catera 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles
Headlamp adjustment is defective. Headlights cannot be aimed properly due to internal breakage. This is apparently common to all models of Cadillac Cateras from 1997 to 2001.
