LOUD NOISES due to Sunroof? (2 answers)

I've have the gasket around the sunroof replaced, reseated, reseated once again and the glass panels moved around a bit, all in an effort to reduce the bloody noise in my 2012 CTS! I've been told by several people that this isn't normal. On the flip side, GM Rep's are now tellin...

Why my dealer says it's normal for heated seats not to turn during remote start? (3 answers)

Weather temp does get below 50 degrees. The vehicle has less than 1700 miles on it. Neither driver nor passenger seats work. Yes I know that the lights don't come on and I don't care about that. Nothing worse than getting into a warm car and sitting on a frozen leather seat! Dealer d...

2012 Cadillac CTS Recalls

The Engine May Stall

The weight on the key ring and/or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine and increasing the risk of a crash. In the event of a crash, if the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings, and vehicles with slotted keys will receive key inserts to correct this concern. Note: Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring.


Potential Loss of Braking Ability

The retaining nut for the brake booster pushrod at the brake pedal may not have been tightened correctly during vehicle assembly. The nut could loosen and allow the pushrod to separate from the brake pedal. This would result in loss of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the pushrod retention nut and tighten it to the correct specification if necessary. The General Motors recall number is 11318.

Either backing up (worst) or forward. Happens depending on amt of gas in tank. Worst when tank has around 1/2 tank of gas. Not noticeable when either full or 1/4 less. Dealer feels this is due to design ...
