2014 Cadillac XTS Owner Comments

problem #3

This vehicle is equipped with a "blind spot detector" system. This system fails "occasionally". this creates a safety issue if it fails when I am trying to change lanes. This has happened at least once. This vehicle has been in for service of this issue 4 or 5 times without any repair. The last time it was in, I was told there are other owners that have this problem and "Cadillac is working on a fix". this was more than 5 months ago and I have heard nothing about a fix. I would like this issue addressed on a higher level.

Driving on interstate when engine quit running. Was able to get car to shoulder of the road. After a couple of minutes, car started and ran fine. After it started, I immediately contacted onstar; they ran a diagnosis on vehicle and said they found no problems. I later took car to dealer and reported this stall. Dealer said everything checked O.K.

At 5:15am, 5/29/14, my Xts while parked in my residence driveway spontaneously caught fire. The fire emanated from the engine compartment and destroyed the entire front 1/2 of the vehicle. North farmingdale fd responded and extinguished the fire. No injuries were caused. The nassau county pd and nassau fire marshalls office also responded and after a visual and photo examination determined that the fire started in the area of the brake booster pump. Cadillac had issued a recall for this vehicle type on 4/12/14 with the warning that a defect in the brake booster pump could cause a fire and in my case this is exactly what occurred. The oil spillage and vehicle debris also caused extensive damage to the driveway resulting in a complete replacement of the driveway.
