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.

While vehicle is running the radio turns off and on intermittently stationary or moving. The vehicles while driving shut down while driving. The car sometimes won't start when turning on the ignition switch. Airbag lights is on and check voltage light are registering while stationary or driving. The plugs, alternator and core pack was replaced hoping to resolve the issue. Took vehicle to the Cadillac dealership but they denied me any service under the recall problems I was experiencing. There position is the recall is VIN. Specific.

My 2007 Cadillac Cts has had problem after problem since I purchased it used at 60,000 miles!! I am now experiencing seriously dangerous & hazardous brake issues when parking &/or turning the wheel all the way!! the brakes pulsate & go to the floor but fail to stop!! the service brake light comes on & the ABS/tc light as well, but then will go off before I can make it to the dealer!! when I parked on a hill my car failed to stay parked & started to drift backwards down the hill so I had to jump in & hit the brakes manually!! also the passenger airbag light doesn't recognize when someone is in the passenger seat. The service airbag light would come on the dash & information center then now it is staying on at 90,000 miles. I contacted GMC about the brake issues & they told me there was no recalls for any brake issues!! I also asked about the recall for the airbag for my 2007 vehicle but they informed me it wasn't for my VIN # but it is having the same exact issues as the recall!! someone is going to get seriously injured due to these hazards!! GMC/Cadillac needs to step up & correct these issues before it is to late!! how many more people have to get injured, die, or complain before these issues are addressed!!! this is supposed to be a luxury car but it is more like a junk car death trap!!!!

In December of 2010 there was a recall for the passenger side air bag sensor. That recall was completed on July 7, 2011. I bought this used car with very low mileage on June 15, 2013. On August 7, 2015 the air bag sensor went out. The dealership said that since the recall had already been done they would not do it for free a second time. It sounds to me like the recall was replaced with a faulty part as well. I am very disappointed with this Cadillac and will never buy another one. I have had nothing but problems since I drove it off the lot.
