we have to add oil frequently plus it is a mess where we park it. Cadillac should have to stand behind their products. They are ripping people off.

My parents bought this 2001 Cadillac DHS vehicle, used in 2003 and have had issues with it ever since. Most recently was a $2500 dollar repair to fix a top end water leak, and lower end oil pan gasket leak. The engine needed to be removed! The repair was made and the vehicle was given to me. I hadn't had it a month before it over heated! This time the radiator cracked and allowed wated to go into the transmission. This time the repair is going to cost $1000 dollars! Does anyone have a P.O.C. at the Better Business Bureau?
