2010 Cadillac CTS Problems
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.
Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.
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.
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.

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.
