Cadillac CTS-V Problems
A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.
The rear axle pinion seal may leak causing fluid loss and possible internal rear end damage. Replacing the faulty seal will commonly correct this concern.
The front and rear light bulbs are prone to premature failure. Our technicians tell us that the front bulbs can be very difficult to replace.
The passenger seat sensor may fail causing the SRS (airbag) light to illuminate. This problem has turned into a recall on some vehicles. Please contact you local dealer to see if your particular car is included. For more information on this recall, please click here»
One or both secondary air injection check valves may become restricted causing poor air flow resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. It is often recommend to replace both check valves even if a fault code is set for only one bank of cylinders. Replacing only one valve may result in a return trip to the repair shop.

Cadillac CTS-V Reviews
Although this car is extremely fast, it is still using an old school pushrod engine with aftermarket cheap OEM junk. Tires were gone after 5K miles, gearbox and supercharger failed shortly after purchasing. Buy an AMG you'll be much happier
Fantastic brakes but very dusty!
Only car I have ever owned this long. I have had a lot of "cool" cars. This has truely been the best car expericne I have ever had. Hope to get a new CTS-V soon.
LOVE THIS CAR IT IS A BLAST TO DRIVE
Great car and minus the wheel hop the car would be PERFECT.....no complaints though its the best of both worlds, fast like a muscle car and luxurious like your typical caddy.
