    Re: Dropped Trans

    I agree. Given your history of problems with the transmission, your dissatisfaction with the prior attempts to repair it, your vocal public complaints and your demand for an entirely new transmission, the extended test was, IMHO, clearly justified. Rather than complaining, I would be pleased at their extra effort.

    Re: Dropped Trans

    I haven't complained. I was waiting to see which way the wind was blowing before I made a decision. I know in the back of my head that a major test drive was in order. It seems to be driving just fine now. I only hope it continues.

    I appreciate everyone's ideas and support throughout this ordeal. I am relearning my car all over. I got in it this morning and received a phone call and was surprised I had a bluetooth connection!

    ----------

    Many thanks to all of you.

    Ditto that.

    Re: extended test drive.

    fwiw, my CTS’ 42,000 total miles include >800 miles of so-called "test drives."

    IF your Cadillac dealer is like mine, then a test drive of more than a few miles is cheap perk for dealer service employee who commutes from outlying area; employee leaves personal vehicle at dealership overnight, drives my Cadillac to and from home for one or more days (did he take the gf/wife/kids for a ride, out to dinner, or shopping?). Extended test drives are not performed on the clock during normal business hours; sad, but true.

    ^ In multiple posts Tinman has expressed his anxiety about traveling far from home with wife/grandchildren/elderly parents in this car. I have no issue with the service employee being the beta tester. If he takes his gf/wife/kids for a ride, so be it. JMO

    I hope your gas tank was empty when you broke down.

    They had my car over a month. I can't remember how full it was. Hell, I can't remember yesterday.

    Allow me to refresh your memory...yesterday I loaned you $100. I'd like you to repay the loan now.
