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.

Sometimes when accelerating it bogs down. Dangerous when you need pull out in traffic. Took it to dealership at least 5 times. They checked codes. Never could get it to repeat at dealerships.

Experienced several instances of vehicle being very hesitant to accelerate which is dangerous when trying to enter interstate traffic. Being told that this is just a characteristic of the type of engine is not a good or professional response. Needs to be addressed by Cadillac.

  • 500 miles
The contact owns a 2011 Cadillac Srx. The contact was driving approximately 20 mph and as the accelerator was applied, there was a sudden reduction in speed between 5 to 10 mph. The vehicle then began to lunge forward violently. The failure recurred six different times. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnosis where the contact was awaiting further investigation. The failure mileage was 500.
