Amazing security and comfort driving all around.

Ultra long sunroof, comfortable seating and adjustments, perfect for family, rides smooth, built in GPS navigation, on star services, XM radio features built in. Back seating that drops down for more rear room ability. Seats are temperature controlled. Anti lock brakes, security equipped, perfect spacing for traveling and children.

Great car if you can afford it.

Car drives smoothly but minor issues are very costly with a Cadillac. Oil changes are double the average cost. Changing the front blinker lights will cost you $150 due to design and placement of bulbs. Overall, it is a nice vehicle if you can easily afford the extra expenses that come with owning a luxury car.

Car and truck all in one.

The rear differential bearing is going out. Its making the anti-lock brakes not work. The driver side heated seat went out. But other than that I really love the car. It's like have a car and a truck all in one. We haul horse feed in it. Or we can take it out on the town and be driving a nice comfortable car.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL MAIL TO CONSUMERS THE CORRECTED LABEL OR THE CUSTOMER WILL HAVE THE OPTION FOR DEALERS TO INSTALL THE LABEL. THE MANUFACTURER DID NOT PROVIDE AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT CADILLAC AT 1-866-982-2239, CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, AND GMC TRUCKS AT 1-866-996-9463.

Report Receipt Date:
Dec 19, 2007
NHTSA Campaign:
07V589000
Summary:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, THE REAR AXLE PINION SEAL DOES NOT MEET ALL OF THE SPECIFICATIONS AND MAY EXPERIENCE A FLUID LEAK.
Consequence:

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.
