Wear the seat belts. My car does not roll unless everyone has on a seatbelt.

My car is a 2012 Cadillac cts 4dr. The car is a comfortable size for me. The inside is large enough that I don't feel cramped and can drive comfortably. The leather upholstery is cool and comfortable. The only thing I can complain about is the gas mileage. It was stated that I should get approx. . 17 miles city. I get about 14 mpg. Most of my driving is city.

Buyer beware for what you get. It can cost you more than you are expecting.

The screen is broken on the front display. I researched and found it expensive to replace and it is impossible to find a used one. The rest of the vehicle is very nice and I would not change anything on it. I love the color the leather and the double sunroof. I suggest getting used to paying high prices on parts if you want to own a Cadillac.

Not only is my car beautiful, but it is serviced from a fine company that bends over backwards to make sure I am in love with my car at all times. It is good on gas mileage and has enough pick up to get on the freeway and stay out of everyone's way. We have never had a problem with it and have had it new and drove it off the showroom floor.

Service Brakes, Hydraulic > Power Assist > Vacuum Nov 2, 2011
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 2, 2011
NHTSA Campaign:
11V536000
Summary:
GM IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012 CADILLAC CTS VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM OCTOBER 21, 2011, THROUGH OCTOBER 26, 2011. THESE VEHICLES MAY HAVE A CONDITION IN WHICH THE POWER VACUUM BRAKE BOOST PUSHROD RETENTION NUT MAY NOT BE TORQUED TO THE PROPER SPECIFICATION. IF THE NUT IS NOT TORQUED TO THE PROPER SPECIFICATION, THE NUT COULD LOOSEN AND ALLOW THE PUSHROD TO SEPARATE FROM THE BRAKE PEDAL.
Consequence:
THIS COULD RESULT IN A LOSS OF ABILITY TO BRAKE AND a vehicle CRASH WITHOUT PRIOR WARNING.
Remedy:
CADILLAC DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE POWER VACUUM BRAKE BOOST PUSHROD RETENTION NUT, AND IF NECESSARY, TORQUE THE NUT TO THE PROPER SPECIFICATION. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 1, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CADILLAC AT 1-800-458-8006.

Recall Jul 2, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 2, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V394000
Summary:
This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. 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. General Motors LLC (GM) notified the agency on July 2, 2014 that they are recalling 554,328 model year 2003-2014 Cadillac CTS vehicles manufactured August 16, 2001, to April 28, 2014, and 2004-2006 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured March 20, 2003, to August 11, 2006. In these models, the weight on the key ring and/or road conditions or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine.
Consequence:
If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will provide two replacement key rings, and vehicles with slotted keys will receive key inserts, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14172.
