Sometimes when accelerating it bogs down. Dangerous when you need pull out in traffic. Took it to dealership at least 5 times. They checked codes. Never could get it to repeat at dealerships.

Experienced several instances of vehicle being very hesitant to accelerate which is dangerous when trying to enter interstate traffic. Being told that this is just a characteristic of the type of engine is not a good or professional response. Needs to be addressed by Cadillac.
