2006 Cadillac DTS Owner Comments

problem #2

DTS 8-cyl

  • 55,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Cadillac Dts. The contact was driving 50 mph when an abnormal growling sound was emitted from the steering wheel. Upon inspection, the contact noticed that the power steering pressure hose exhibited a hole, which was leaking power steering fluid onto the engine. The contact did not take the vehicle to a dealer or a local mechanic due the vehicle being inoperable. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign I.D. 06V105000 (steering:hydraulic power assist:hose, piping, and connections) and called the manufacturer. The manufacturer stated that the recall (GM recall number:06026) was non- existent. The failure mileage was 50,000. Updated 9/26/12

Power steering hose connection failed, GM refused to fix recall (NHTSA campaign id number 06V105000), they said that my "VIN" was not apart of the recall, only on units built from Dec 06 through Feb 06, my car was build in Mar 06.... dealer said that this is the faulty part... paid $519.49 for the fix and 110.00for a tow... were afraid to drive might start engine fire.... GM should recall all of these cars with faulty hoses.
