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.

2004 Cadillac CTS Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 212013

CTS 3.2L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 95,000 miles


I really like my car but it's a money pit.The dash is cracked. Cadillac wants me to pay them $1300+ just for the dashboard. That doesn't include the labor to install it. I had to have the transmission completely removed and have all the seals replaced because of seal failure. It has the 3.2L V6, at 80K miles it started having lifter tap. This car has been adult driven and never raced. It has had the Mobil 1 syn in it all its life and changed every 5k miles.

I lost the rear license bezel cover at 85K coming back from Florida. I called the dealer and they wanted $1300 for a replacement including color matching it to the car. You would think that for the price we paid for these vehicles that GM would stand behind their product, but they don't. Now I hear they're building all their Cadillacs in China, good luck with that. I'll never buy another one, just for that simple reason.
