They realized after it burnt a quart of oil in 4 days the timing chain had stretched. A week later I had to take the car back to the dealer for noises after applying the brakes and they had to replace both control arms and stabilizer links to correct problem. The key fob if applicable , should also be removed from the key ring. Very suspicious so many issues needing repair have occurred with this car. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. They foxed issue but gave me a new one. Returned techs do not recognize any knocking now?? A pin was bent and fixed issue.
Finally convince us to get rid of car. While driving 50 mph, the contact heard an abnormal clinking noise coming from the engine. The rear door locks jam and the doors won't open from the outside. In short problems have existed for approximately 3 years. I called OnStar and they confirmed there was a problem. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone wanting a great looking and handling car.
On the display screen near odometer it displayed engine temperature too high?. Presently performing an oil usage test supervised by the dealer. I can't say much for the reliability because I am only owned it for a little over a month. I pay all three times. The car would not turn back on. The problem was said to be the electrical wiring on the drivers side from the front of the car to the back of the car.
So again my wife contacted Cadillac headquarters and my wife got an email from Cadillac headquarters saying sorry for your problem but we will give you one hour of diagnostic for free. My only negative is the response of both dealer and corporate to my request for a good faith compensation for the time and effort, as well as moderate expense incurred in getting the car brought up to standards. Check engine light and codes. The dealer had to replace the inside door handle housing split, trim pad and handle housing. Car engine hesitated noticed while on highway. They attempted to repair the car immediately by swapping parts from anot 104839 km Noise coming from rear differential.
Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. On Monday afternoon I pulled into my bank with cars in front of me and beside me. Also, the check engine indicator illuminated. Rebuilt engine heavy carbon buildup; new piston rings, bearings, seals, gaskets, etc. This is a massive safety issue.
Someone screamed turn off the ignition and the moment was over. I have never owned a car where bolts just fall off for no reason and I've had 10 year old cars with more than 100,000 miles on them. The failure mileage was 34,053. Replaced timing chain and some other misc. Just waiting for a solution. After the original system shut down, I was driving on an exit ramp to the interstate when once again the whole system shut down. Neither were the case, but I had dealer change oil anyways.
Was told that the transmission and transfer case broke there was no warning and they didn't know why the brakes went out when the transmission went. Part was replaced under warranty. After about 15 seconds of this the car finally figured out that something was wrong and lit up the service stabilitrak, service brake assist, and service traction control warnings and allowed me to accelerate again exactly as it's done three times before when wheel speed sensors have gone out. Car went into reduced engine power mode. The manufacturer was notified of the failure.
On 12th Aug 2012 while I was en-route to the Cadillac service center the vehicle had a break down. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. I feel the car was not fixed properly or was fixed with the same defective part. The key fob if applicable , should also be removed from the key ring. It has the performance of the top German performance luxury lines with a better interior. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key.
There are multiple complaints regarding this problem from other Cadillac owners. The plug and coil was replaced. Check engine light never worked. The vehicle started to slow down independently and stalled. Operating the vehicle is dangerous because the vehicle fails to accelerate in traffic. The contact owns a 2008 Cadillac Cts.
The contact was informed of the manufacturer's recall number: 10287. Fluid replacement resolved the issue. Every day I find a new unexpected feature on this car. The key fob if applicable , should also be removed from the key ring. The dealer, of course had no answers since they did not manufacture the vehicle.
