CTS 6-cyl

  • 35,000 miles


I was number 6 of persons to have a severe rollover wreck in the same spot. In a curve, my right front tire caught T the lip of a 3 foot deep concrete culvert in a driveway. It was 9 inches from the road edge. It flipped over front to on roof. I was trapped in car.my front airbag partially opened but not enough to keep my face and chest area from hitting and breaking the steering wheel. No other of 7 airbags deployed at all. Every window, including sunroof was totally broken out. Both front seats were crushed into the floor and too hot to touch.. since it occurred in the country, I was saved by the neighbors calling for help.onstar failed to notify anyone and the fire/emt man said car was 5 minutes away from going up in flames. My implants were both ruptured by hitting steering wheel and face cut up and bruised by glass and lack of full employment by driver airbag. I have photos showing car and airbag. The airbag was pristine clean with 2 large torn holes. No smoke or dust off any type. I still haven't driven in 21/2 years. Please give me your opinion. Thank you.

Around 3:30 P.M, I noticed my car was jerking very hard, it changed gears hard, I lost power, it was hard to pick up speed, and when I arrived home 20 minutes later, it started smoking uncontrollably.

Received a recall notice from General Motors back in September 2014, recall # 14172 for the ignition switch safety problem. To date I have read their have been 43 related deaths.. I called my local Cadillac dealership on 10/6/2014 at 2001 N collins St, arlington, tx, phone 877-584-7149. They took all my info and recall nbr and said as soon as the parts come in they will call me and to schedule the appointment. Well it is now December 16,2014 and I am still waiting"???????" I can see how serious GM is about this recall [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
