    Carpet Defect Dilema

    Newbie, first post. Recently traded in e60 M5 for an '11 6A sedan. Not a single regret, this car is amazing. Only snag is a few interior fit and finish issues, namely the carpet near my left foot which is bulging out of its proper place. I set up an apt with the dealership to get the carpet replaced, but I pulled the plug this morning when it dawned on me how much @$+# they would have to take out. I'm hoping to avoid a bucket of rattles on an otherwise great car.

    Any thoughts?

    That's odd. That's the only place my carpet is all bulged out too.

    Common issue. Most times, owners address it themselves because the dealer "fix" won't last.

    Hey was that you I saw on the 215 this afternoon, a bit after 5? Is yours Crystal Red? It was a newly-purchased but used V sedan, no rear plate yet. I was in the white V wagon.

    Ah ok I didn't see a black one. Well maybe I'll see you sometime, I believe I have the only white V wagon in Vegas.

    Carpet is not too bad. Dodge replaced the head liner on my Charger, and had to remove the windshield in the process.

    My car is 3 weeks old and I had the same issue.
    I fixed it myself by using HD Industrial Velcro. It's been a week now and I has not moved. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    That was me and you were driving like a tool just like you where the last time I saw you in my GTO. I was hoping you'd follow me again because I didn't have my son in my car this time (although I was in the slow car) but you didn't.

    I have the exact problem on my '11 Vagon and the SAME problem on the '09 Sedan I previously owned, so it appears this is a defect in Cadillac manufacturing. I hate seeing the carpet stick out like that! And you say the dealer won't address it?

    Update: Dealer was more than willing to replace the carpet; It was me who decided that disassembling much of the interior would create more problems than it would solve. I got some Velcro...problem solved. Also did some plasti dip action this weekend

    Post a pic.

    I had an issue near the left foot too. Fixed it myself the day after I got the car. I do not know what your exact problem is but on mine the carpet came away and I could pull it more and see the metal underneath. I saw a ground post with a weird 1/2" "tab" that had a pointed end to it. I cut a 1/2" slice in the carpet and poked the tab threw it and bent the tab to secure the carpet in place. There was no other purpose for this "tab" except for this so I think. Carpet is now rock solid and has been fine for 16K miles.

    I'm in GUAM now. (No CTS's, a few 93-96 Fleetwoods). If you want, When I get back in a week, I'll post pics of mine.
