Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2003 Cadillac CTS Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 162008

CTS 6-cyl

  • 49,900 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Cadillac Cts. After the vehicle was serviced for a routine oil change, it experienced a loss of power. While pulling out of the dealer parking lot at 20 mph, the contact depressed the accelerator pedal, but the vehicle lost power. The more he depressed the accelerator pedal, the less power the vehicle exhibited. The contact let up off the accelerator pedal and some power returned to the vehicle. The vehicle gradually gained power the more he released the pedal. The dealer reset the fuel injector switch; however, the failure recurred a few days later. The contact took the vehicle to a local auto part store and they performed a diagnostic test. The results indicated that three injectors were being misread. The contact must continuously pump the accelerator pedal in order for the vehicle to start. The vehicle currently still exhibits significant power loss and will shut off if given too much acceleration. No further repairs have been made. The failure mileage was 49,900 and current mileage was 51,000. Updated 07/29/08 updated 07/29/08

CTS 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles
I am and have been experiencing numerous failures with my vehicle. I have contacted GM numerous times beginning approximately a few months after I purchased the vehicle to inform them that the vehicle is defective, only to be told my vehicle is out of warranty, so they refuse to fix it or give my one that is not defective. My vehicle is still defective to this date.
