The 2000 Catera Sport I'm looking at

Post by Matera97 on 5/27/2009, 13:52



So this is the new beast, its got 176K KM roughly 109K Miles. It has the projection headlights, 17" OEM Sport Rims, Ricaro Heated front seats, spoiler, good suspension. I took a test drive today, the gas peddle is not very responsive, do you guys know how to tighten the throttle cable? Fog lights do not appear to be working, prolly a fuse. The guy at the shop didn't know what work has been done, so I'm gonna call the dealership to run the VIN as well as carfax. So yeah tell me what ya'll think. In the parking lot at the time are a Seville, an STS, a CTS, and a SC mustang with lambo doors, custom ground effects, dude said 478RWHP with out his wet shot...Car looked fast!

Only thing I woud say for the throlte is, someone before you drove lika a granny... with hardly any throtle at all... so its very slow to response...

Once you do a few WOT runs it will relearn your driving patterns and it will adjust the throttle sensitivity based on that...

Its the ECU trying to learn your driving habits and make it so that its working the way you tell it to...

Cant wait to see more shots of it!

SO no power seats then? Do you have the rear sun shade? Rear heated seats?

I didn't check the back seats, so I couldn't tell ya. No rear sunshade, no power seats, well no power for moving forward or backward, up, down and tilt are power. Now I haven't bought it yet, I'm still looking for more information on it, and talk him down a little further. I got him down to 3500 already, without going to Dealer or Carfax so I think after I get that information I'll take it as is for 3000, I don't want to pay more. Plus, if I do buy it I'm not keeping it white, I don't like it. So thats another $2600 for paint job, $3200 if I want pearlesant, candy or a flake style.
