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.

2013 Cadillac CTS Owner Comments

Not an actual incident with the vehicle. Writing to advise of inconsistent information concerning recall for ignition. Usually get a monthly diagnostics report from onstar around the 7th-12th of each month. July's report made no mention of recall. When I when on to to renew minutes it said car is recalled. Called onstar, was transferred to Cadillac customer assistance (cca), and was told recall was issued after report.. however cca said that recall number on onstar website was wrong. That number was associated with a Silverado. But, while on the lengthy hold, found on the owners website (at 2 recall numbers that are associated with my car (N140172 issued Jul 21, and N140497 issued Aug 4), that are still on the website. Received my Aug diagnostics report, and no mention of a recall. Called onstar to ask why no mention of recall, and the advisor said the diagnostics report is the "most up to date information, and my vehicle is safe to operate", and not to worry about putting my other keys and the fob back onto the key ring.
