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.

2005 Cadillac CTS Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 022013

CTS 6-cyl

  • 78,000 miles


The instrument panel stopped operating, different mechanics could not locate problem, Cadillac deal wanted $200 just to review. Several owners of same mocel having same problem. Dealears refuse to correct or even look at the cause without customers paying for service call. This seems to be a common problem with this car, as others having same problem. I have been told it's faulty electrical cluster in instrument panel and car is now out of warrenty, but was withing warranty at time of occurance, I failed to take to dealer in timely manner. Can anything be do ne about this. I now have 87,000 miles on car.
