    Stuff in the Trunk

    Just got my 2014 CTS. In the truck there is a lift-up panel which houses a neat little cargo organizer. Tucked into a slot on the right side of the organizer is a small heavy duty metal black rod (about 12 inches long) which is threaded on one side and an eye on the other side. Anybody know what is this?

    Nice to see they're including them on new cars by default now. You used to have to ask for them specifically. They've always been mandatory overseas. If you ever ended up in a ditch, screw that in to your front or rear bumper, whichever is most accessible for a tow truck, and now you can be pulled out. Just make sure you always have a flathead screwdriver and a microfiber towel handy so you can pry the little rectangle open without damaging the paint.

    I wonder if this is all new Cadillacs or if you just had a good dealer.

    And just to clarify, on the front it's the square on the passenger's side. If you have the headlamp washers, there are similar looking squares on either side. It's the lower square on the passenger side.

    Nope. Part number for a lot of GM cars, including mine is 10367821. If you click this link, it's #12 in the diagram. http://www.gmpartscenter.net/oem-par...w-eye/10367821

    If you don't have one and would like to get one, what you want to avoid is buying some generic one. Talk to the dealer and get the one that goes to your car.

    Another interesting thing with the tow eye is a funnel so you can add gasoline from a gas can.
