1. Gear shift had too much play when going from park to drive (dealer-no problem found) 2. Rear rotors replaced because dealer found them warped at 2221 miles 3. Running rough and rotten smell (dealer found no problem) 4. Wipers went out on 2/26/99, dealer had to order part so drove til 3/2/99 without wipers. Upon returning to dealer entire dashboard had gone out. They kept the car until 3/5, again went to dealer on 3/26 for wipers not working, still had to order more parts, returned on 4/6 to get replaced again. So I was from 2/26/99 to 4/6/99 without windshield wipers. 5. Complained of noise when turning right, they found no problem, I also complained of rough ride, they replace bushings and lubed bar - felt better for a day, but rough ride returned after that. I feel they have had my car more than I have. I currently have 5225 miles on a 13 month old Cadillac, thus is outragious. Thank you.
