2006 Cadillac DTS Owner Comments

problem #3

DTS 8-cyl

  • 48,500 miles


Subject 2006 Dts VIN no [xxx] I had my first flat tire in about 15 yrs. I decided to save time and change the tire myself. Once I jacked the car up far enough to let weight off the rim the jack buckled which could have been very unsafe. Thankfully I was only left stranded. Are the quality of all GM jacks made so poorly? I contaced a family member who provided an adequate jack. I am glad I nor anyone else was hurt due to this jack failure. I intend to purchase a new trolley jack to carry with me as a replacement for the less than acceptable jack which came with the car.

06 Cadillac Dts has had serious electrical/computer system failures since new. Vehicle will suddenly lose all electronics, instruments, lights but engine will still run. After dealer attempted repair, problems continue. Headlights flicker and sometimes go out. Gps goes to night screen during the day. Auto headlight dimmer fails. Power points, instruments, seats periodically fail. One day seat cooler will work, others it won't. windshield wipers automatic function, "rainsense" starts normally but then stops in heavy rain requiring manual operation. All items reported to dealer multiple times with the same result "unable to duplicate customer's problem." Provided cell phone video of system failures but dealer still says they cannot duplicate.

The contact owns a 2006 Cadillac Dts. The vehicle was parked when the contact observed that the support arm which secured the hood in an upright position failed to function. An authorized dealer was notified of the malfunction. The technician stated that the failure occurred extremely early at relatively low mileage, and stated that the part would be replaced. The failure and current mileages were 44,000.
