I have 2000 Catera that I think by reading these posts that the stereo is over heating. Some folks have been sugesting aftermarket systems. Now bear in mind i'm 52 years old and grew up in the time of 8tracks lol. So I think a stock Bose system sounds great. If you put aftermarket stereos in you car you are inviting thugs to rip it out. So you better invest in a good alarm also if not already equiped with 1. I'm posting this because I noticed my neighbors car this morning with the window smashed out and the trunk pryed open, big hole in the dash with wires everywhere. My Catera and Seville are parked right across the street not 20 feet away and were untouched. If you shuck out good money for aftermarket stereos you should spend good money to protect it.
