My name is Johnboy and found this site while trying to do some research on a possible car purchase. I have a soldier that had a 98 Catera and he's really good on vehicle upkeep. However after purchasing two reman'd heads and transmission (mechanic told him it could be a possible issue, this soldier doesn't like issues so he just buys the parts instead of wasting time) he was discouraged to have anymore work completed as the parts were pricey. One of our mechanics picked it up and reinstalled the new parts as well as a new waterpump. The body is flawless, interior shows clean leather, and it has $64k original miles. Most of these miles were from trips from GA to TX. Plus he commuted about 40-45 miles daily to work. However after seeing some reviews, I'm scared off but the price is $1500 because many of us are PCSing and need to get ready to move. I'm hoping to find as much info off this site within the next couple of weeks to decide to buy or not.
