problem #2

  • 30,000 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Cadillac Cts. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 15 mph, the vehicle suddenly accelerated without the accelerator pedal being depressed. In addition, when turning the steering wheel to the left there was an abnormal noise. The contact mentioned that the failure recurred twice. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the failure was unable to be duplicated. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred.. the manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 30,000.

CTS 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
On 6 June, 2013 while driving on M59 in Michigan and applying the brakes, my knee made contact with the remote fob, causing the ignition key to move from the "on" position to "accessory" mode. The engine stopped running and I had to steer and brake the vehicle without power assist to the shoulder of the road. I put the vehicle in park and restarted without incident. The same situation occurred in January 2014 while driving on I-75 to Florida. In both cases I informed my dealer (lafontaine Cadillac in highland, Michigan). The response was that they had not received any similar complaints and they could do nothing about it. I informed GM of the issue and they arranged to have the vehicle examined today, 1 April, 2014. I just received a call from the dealership informing me that the ignition switch met specifications. Whether or not it did (and to which specification) is academic. This is a safety issue! while I was able to manhandle the steering and braking, I doubt that my wife would be able to.
