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.

2009 Cadillac SRX Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 012010


  • 40,000 miles


Have had my Srx into the dealer twice for the same reason that upon acceleration of vehicle looses power and hesitates due the stability traction system. It will hesitate and then kick in. This is very bad when trying to take off from a stop and into traffic and the car just looses the ability to accelerate. The engine is gong but your not and then it will finally kick in. The dealer replaced a sensor the last time but this time said that they had the code but was unable to duplicate it when driving it. So they reset it and erased the code but unsure if that will work. They claim that they have never heard of it but upon researching this on the internet have found several people have had the same issues happen to them too.

On 2 separate occasions with 2 different drivers this rear wheel drive vehicle with "a" traction rated tires lost control and the back end spun around 90 degrees. This vehicle handled extremely poorly on wet roads and the manufacturer could find no defective systems. Traction control/stabilitrac was active and working. The consumer requested any affirmation related to the Cadillac Srx rear wheel drive and stability on wet pavement or poor road conditions. The consumer traded the vehicle in within 2 months of ownership. Updated 01/21/10.
