Electrical System problem #4
The VIN of this vehicle was 1G6DM57N13_. 2003 Cadillac Cts - the backup light assembly came off in car wash. . . Dealerships are well aware of problem but say their hands are tied because of gm. They said the reason was because the supplier to Cadillac used an incorrect epoxy to build the part. Gm knows about the issue but will do nothing. Part is over $550 to replace!! one search on internet brings up hundreds of complaints for same issue. This is ridiculous. I called Cadillac and they said they would call if a recall was issued, but they can do nothing more. It was May 21, 2010 when this electrical system issue occurred.
Electrical System problem #5
The vehicle was a 2003 Cadillac Cts. The VIN of this vehicle was 1G6DM57N33_. Purchased 2003 Cts used in 2007 with 54,000 miles. At 60,000 miles, the serpentine belt broke and destroyed engine in the middle of rush hour traffic. 30 days later coil went out and had to be towed again. Approximately 30 days after that the other coil went out and again vehicle was towed to the dealer for repairs. Currently the car is sitting in my driveway and will not start. Took to repair shop close to my house and they said the electrical system is too messed up to run a diagnostic on it. Prior to the vehicle dying in the driveway, the engine shut down in the middle of the road on two separate occasions. I lost steering and had to push it off the road. It is a dangerous and unreliable vehicle and should not be on the road. I contacted Cadillac but received no response. The car currently has only 74000 miles on it with a total of maybe 20000 added in three years of ownership mostly due to the car needing constant repairs. I cannot afford to make the payments and pay for repairs both at the same time. I do not trust the safety of this vehicle. This problem occurred on Tuesday, Jun. 1, 2010.
