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.

2010 Cadillac Escalade Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 092011

Escalade 8-cyl

  • 95 miles


Second lemon from the Texas plant. First was 07 GMC Yukon with massive electrical problems. This new Cadillac, also made in arlington, has had several issues with the same rear pass door, door latch, window seals and warped door frame. After multiple trips to dealer the problem still exists. Both auto running board motors have needed replacing and parts have been changed out several times. After a few thousand miles all 8 lifters in the engine needed replacing and now the truck is sluggish and "out of sync". the air conditioner went out after a few hundred miles and required an entire new HVAC system, new hoses, mounts, vents etc. The front pass leather seat needed replacement because of poor quality. The paint in several areas has flaked and has been to the body shop three X's for paint repair. GM has been forced to take it back under the lemon law in calif. Back to back problems from the Texas plant on separate GM products, both brand new and driven less than 10,000 miles per year. Never buy anything built in the Texas plant, there seems to be big issues there.
