2009 Cadillac CTS Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Vehicles with certain V6 engines may illuminate the Check Engine Light one or more of the following codes: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024, P0341, P0346, P0336, or P0391. Our technicians tell us that some vehicles may require a powertrain control module (PCM) software update to correct this issue. Other vehicles may have excess camshaft end play on one or both cylinder heads which will need to be corrected using special procedures outlined by GM.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.

Maintenance -- Verified

Failure of brake components can be caused by contaminated brake fluid. To help prevent this the Brake fluid should be flushed at the very least every 60,000 miles.

Engine -- Verified

Our technicians tell us that the recommended spark plug life is 100k miles. The ignition coils are mounted directly on top of the spark plugs, as a result there are not longer any spark plug wires to fail.

The heated washer module under the hood could overheat due to excessive current draw. Under certain conditions, this could result in an under hood fire.

Suspension & Steering, February 11, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The lock nuts securing the toe link portion of the rear suspension may loosen and cause a clanking type noise. In some cases, the toe link could separate and cause the rear wheel to turn in and out uncontrollably. This can result in a loss of vehicle control, which increases the risk of a crash. Toe links will be inspected and replaced as necessary and new lock nuts will be installed. At this time, there is no scheduled start date for this recall. The GM recall number is 11029.

2009 Cadillac CTS Reviews

cts from 2007 to 2010 before you buy check with dealer by giving them your vin# to check the history of repairs and recalls. they have timing chain stretch, code p008 don't buy unless proof of replacement. symptoms are very poor fuel millage 14mpg, gas pedal very sensitive, surging and hesitation. they will always blame you, the oil type and level and how frequently you change it. And then they widen the parameters so the check engine light will not read the cam and crank sensors being off position and set a code. Document and save code before dealer erases it.
