I have an 08 Cadillac CTS. It went for a 27 point inspection 2 weeks ago and "everything was perfect." Recently my battery has started dying randomly. More importantly my engine light is on. First flashing, now solid. It feels like its running kind of rough. Additionally my PSI gauge is staying pretty high. Can someone please give me some info??? I dont want to do back to the dealership sounding like an idiot (plus I'm a girl), I dont need them feeding me any BS. Thanks in advance!
If the engine light is on and solid there will be a code in the computer indicating something that could be wrong. It sounds like there is something wrong and the engine light being on is just confirming. I'd definitely take it to be checked out.
I have an appointment scheduled for Saturday, my concern is because I'm getting it serviced at the dealership they might try to bullshit me. I find it really weird in their inspection they didn't find anything wrong with my engine or battery and now they are both acting up. They also have my brakes listed as new and I know for a fact they aren't.
I wouldn't assume they are out to get you just because they are a dealership or even that any other place is deceitful. Odds are they are honest so there's no point in stacking the cards against them. A lot of the inspection is a visual check so internal mechanical issues most likely won't be caught until something fails. Its even trickier if there are electrical issues involved.
I'm assuming you have one of the "GoodWrench" inspection sheets from your last visit. If the inspection shows green-yellow-red conditions for the brake pads then they aren't necessarily saying they are new if they checked green. Its just a quick measurement of the pad thickness meaning there is still plenty of life left.
