Cadillac is part of GM, the largest automaker in the U.S. Cadillac was founded from pieces of the Henry Ford Company in 1902 and was named after French explorer Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, who helped found the city of Detroit, Michigan. The first Cadillac vehicles were two-seat, horseless carriages that rolled out in 1902. Cadillac was the vehicle manufacturer to release an incorporated electrical system in 1912. This allowed starting, ignition, and lighting.
Cadillac's most reported problem on RepairPal is associated with power window regulators on some Cadillac DeVille models.
