    18K miles. No sunroof. And more importantly, no recalled glove box.

    No creaks, rattles or squeaks.

    So who here has a 2009 or 2010 that had the glove box replaced and now has center console squeaks?????????

    Re: CTS V Sedan and Coupe - Rattles Creaks and Other Noises - Do Your Cars Have Them?

    Thank you everyone for your responses, I really appreciate all of the valuable input. What a great forum!

    Yes it is an amazing car and even with the new 2014CTS coming around the corner - my attention still gets taken to the current V/ V Coupe - just seems edgier and more driver focused/dynamic - of course won't really know that until the new car is out in the field so to speak. Just my perception.

    Eric-

    I have been eyeing n XFR too - but the V at the end of the day still as an edgier look to it - can't quite put my finger on it - the XFR is really nice - maybe nicer material/ finish choices with the interior, but 8/10ths - 9/10ths on the exterior compared to the V.

    Again thanks for the responses!

    The dealer slipped the glove-box mod. by me during a service visit, without asking me first. But that was over a year ago, and so far no noises or rattles ...

    On recalls, do they have to? I'm not sure.

    The XFR is a very nice car. The interior is quintissentially British -- anybody else mixes that much chrome and wood and it looks tacky, but somehow the Brits pull it off.

    The exterior is elegant and purposeful. I really miss the low roof of classic Jags, but the newer cats still have expensive-car proportions. The thing of it is that its styling elements are on the front end of popular trends. You'll see bits of this on everything from Astons to Infinitis, even Fords and Kias. In another ten years, it'll probably still look contemporary, but it might not look bold or distinctive.

    The Cadillac, on the other hand, doesn't now and never will look like anything else. It might look dated in a decade, or even weird, but it won't be anonymous. Some people would say that's a bad thing; others love the idea.

    Re: CTS V Sedan and Coupe - Rattles Creaks and Other Noises - Do Your Cars Have Them?

    CaddyHills,
    The XFR is such a beautiful machine and the interior, IMO, rivals Aston. The only reason I've got my eye on one is because the expense of repairs, maintenance and resale value have faded since my STR. Just remember - rotors $1,000 per axle, torque converter $3,500, and oil changes at $100+ a pop. Another point of delineation; I tried to sell my STR for trade-in value for 3 months whereas I sold my V1 in 48 hours. Once you get past the factory warranty - there's almost a zero resale market unless you sell it well below any listed value. If you drive it to the wheels come off - good luck. In my town there's one Jag dealer and non-oem part support is nill and oem part prices are well protected through dealer channels.

    BTW, glad I wrote this post - I think I'll hang on the V2 for a while longer!

    Best,
    Eric

    I guess not - when I asked the SA about it, he said that the procedure was mandatory.

    * This poster would like to express regret though not outright apology for any emotional anguish caused by his lack
    of proper paragraphing... for some reason the editor wouldn't switch modes for me last night. Still, it's not exactly right up there with, say, third-world hunger or testicular cancer.

    With apologies to Monty Python, those responsible have been sacked...

    Passenger seat makes a ticking sound without a passenger. (can only hear without the radio on)

    Dash rattles slightly when I park in the sun. (hardly ever park in the sun)

    The newer Cadillacs are not any worse than any other cars I've owned or spent any significant time in. My v2 is on par with other car in that class. Every car rattles.

    Re: CTS V Sedan and Coupe - Rattles Creaks and Other Noises - Do Your Cars Have Them?

    2013 ctsv coupe with 6k my only creak is the center console and it sounds like NEPA_Z has a fix or the dealer might have a fix. I just try not to touch it or lean on it.
    I do notice some wind noise on the driver side not sure if its the seals or mirror, but it is only at highway speeds not sure if it's all the time or just with a cross wind. Only had the V 1 month and a bit.
    Oh I have no sunroof and I do not miss it, I think the car looks better without it.

    I do not like the piano black trim on the console would like a carbon fiber option or brushed or metal pattern like on BMW

    OEM's and Manufacture should do more testing of plastics for noises in different temps or use other materials.

    I think the CTS-V is a great ride and a great buy.

    Hello warmwater,

    I am happy to hear you think the CTS-V was a great buy and is a great ride. I see you are having an issue with the center console. Are you planning on bringing your vehicle into a dealership to work towards a resolution on this issue? Please let me know. I can also be contacted via private message if you would further like to discuss any concerns you may have.

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.

    Laura,

    Thank you for responding, I am shocked and I think it's awesome that Cadillac looks at the forums and hopefully can be used for better customer service and feedback to product management and engineering.

    Yes if its a know issue and can be resolved I'll have Sewell Cadillac get it fixed.

    What I don't want is a minor creak to turn into a major one after service.

    Thank you so much

    I own a 2011 cts-v sedan with 12,000 miles on the odometer.
    NO rattles or creaks or any other noises. Solid as a rock, Never had to take it to a dealer for any reason with the exception of a weak battery which was replaced under warranty,
