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

Nov 182013

CTS 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,894 miles

The transmission fluid on my 2004 CTS Cadillac, flushed out on the ground as my wife drove into a parking lot. After I had it towed for examination, it appeared that a crack occurred in the tranny oil cooler inside the radiator which allowed engine coolant to mix with tranny oil and ruined the whole transmission, torque and radiator as well... This is a costly repair $$$$$. I heard that they had a lot of Cadillac CTS 2004 with this particular problem. So, if you don't want to go through this " major headache" have the radiator changed asap.
