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

problem #1

Jun 302010

DeVille DHS 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 192,000 miles


This Cadillac has given us problem since purchase (2004) used with 27K miles. Near every component has been replaced: window regulators (multiple times), transmission, internal airduck motors, seat heater, rear shade, radio, starter, Cat converter, burning of oil, electrical (computer), and now a new engine. The dealer stated that they don't fix head gasket issues, they will replace the engine. est $12,000. GM continue to make these side mounted engines that can only be remove from the under side of the car. This makes it very difficult to do major repairs yourself. I am NOT pleased with Cadillac's engineering. My 2009 is has major problem already, cruse radar, lane chang indicator, left rear door handle, and sub-woofer are waiting parts for repair. I purchased the 2009 to verify if the 2001 was a lemon or GM had sustymic manufacture issues. The later is proving to be true. My next purchase will NOT be a Cadillac. This engine replacement (Est $12,000) for 9 year old car, has really helped me make this decision.
