My ignition switch and non starting issues are documented with my 2007 Cadillac Srx...many of the issues listed in the recall for Srx vehicles not in my year. There is a documented history of my vehicles having starting issues related to the battery being drained....and I believe the issue with the ignition switch may have been the problem all along. My year vehicle/VIN is not included in the current recall, however, I truly am having the same issues with the ignition switch...it moves around....it wiggles....sometimes car won't start...mimics electrical problems back dash light indicators. There is an issue here.

Hello, the reason for my email is that just this past Monday, November 25 of 2013 the sunroof to my 2007 Cadillac Srx exploded while driving on the freeway with no explanation. This happened around 8pm on a cold and drizzly night. Big chunks of glass fell all over my husband and I leaving us with minor scratches, fortunately no one was severely hurt. The following morning of the incident I went online and came across several identical incidents with the same make and model of car, as well as others. We took the Liberty of contacting GM corporate headquarters as it seems this may possibly be a factory defect. The vehicle is currently at the dealer ship but as of right now there has not been much help, much less an explanation. My biggest concern is the safety of the vehicle being that I am 8 1/2 months pregnant and this is our only vehicle. How safe will this be for my family? I do not feel comfortable and I am not at ease that I have not heard from the local Cadillac dealership where all I have heard from them is an issue of how many miles the car has at the present time and not the fact that this was a life or death situation. The purpose of this is to seek out any kind of help, information, or advice as to what we can do to have this situation resolved. Thank you so much for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
