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.

2001 Cadillac DeVille Owner Comments

I have a 2001 Cadillac dts the engine take excessive amounts of oil and a coolant absorption that cause overheating and constant engine work. I was told at the Cadillac dealership this is a common problem with the Cadillac North star engine. The engine shuts offs when the car runs hot and my safety was in jeopardy due to this known failure. GM should fix these known safety issues with cars with this issue at no cost to the customer. These issues normally range from $1000-$4000 to repair.

DeVille 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,747 miles
$3440.72 of repairs from Jan 05 to Aug 06, includes air bags, computer problems, electric windows, air conditioner, fuel pump, water pump, electric seat heater, etc. On a 2001 Cadillac dts with 60038 miles. All fixed by dealer and extended warranty. We paid #50.00 deductible for each trip to service dept. 8 times since Jan 05. The complaint is regarding the number of times we have been without a vehicle and the numerous repairs on a car that is suppose to be well made, and of course is very expensive. We are selling this vehicle because it is not reliable and will have to withdraw several thousand dollars to make up the difference of the sale value and what we owe. We would be keeping the car until paid for if there had not been so many problems. This car is kept in a garage at all times, and we have it serviced every 3000 miles and have done this since we bought the car in Dec 2003. Please contact us regarding any additional information needed. Thank you.
