    I am an 2.5 ATs owner since late July, and like many others I am also experiencing this terrible issue. It's embarrassing to have people ride my car sometimes. This is my first Cadillac and also the most expensive car I have ever owned. All of the other cheaper cars I have owned previously have never had an issue like this. The rough idle seems to vary in severity consistent to what others have described with one exception. My car has actually stalled 3 times now, and each time was at a stop light as soon as I left my foot off the break. I have been to the dealer once and had another appointment this coming Tuesday. The first time they said they installed an update for the rough idle, but nothing changed. I went back today to make the appointment and they said that another update is now able to be installed that should fix the issue. I am flabbergasted that such an expensive luxury car would have such a 'basic' issue.

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Just putting this out there - I had a the stutter/stall issue with my 2.0T Auto. It finally triggered a MAF (Mass Air Flow) OBD2 code. Between the first service update/recall/fix/whatever and a new MAF (replaced free), I have not had an issue since.

    Count me in as well. Let me know what you need form me.

    QUOTE=aselvan;10775218]@ddawson,
    I have 3.6. Unfortunately, I am also living with this problem for while like few other 3.6 owners. While rattle/shake problem is not as bad as 2.5/turbo owners describe it to be, but it is very noticeable at stop light. I am still continuing to explore other options since there is not much of help from this forum (at least in my case). You can see my earlier posts in this thread [ http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...g-idle-11.html ]

    @Muffin,
    Are you still planing to contact the network TV?. If so, count me in (I am sure others will follow) for any support to provide additional details (i.e. a copy of the dealer work order which states something like "this is a known issue GM is working on and that there is no fix"), any other documentation, and will even make a video of my 3.6 shaking and send them if that helps. May be Caddilac will do something it this gets on the air.

I have an appt tomorrow to get it done. This morning on my way to work it stalled twice. Once again I found myself stalled out in the middle of a busy intersection. I feel so unsafe in this car. Last week it was shaking so bad I pulled over on the side of the freeway and just cried. I thought for sure it was going to stall but it didn't that time. It's such a shame, we are a GM family and I'm just shocked at the customer service. Paying all this money every month for a car most of my family and friends won't drive in. I'm petrified to drive it long distances. It shakes constantly. Radios been replaced twice, vents stopped working, lights constantly flash, I can go on and on. Even with a data recorder I AM STILL THE ONE AT RISK driving this thing. I want to have faith in GM but I don't like the way this is going. I can't even count how many times I've been late to work, sat at the dealership and HOURS on phone with cadillac and GM. Thanks or letting me vent. I better get to bed, gotta get up early to make it back to the dealership before work. Soooo tired of it.
    Hey there,

    What has happened to you? Did this ever get resolved, or are you still struggling with this?

    I'm not so sure you will get a lot of support from the viewing public who many struggle every day taking mass transit and or owning used cars. It will be like Phil Mickelson complaining about high taxes on his golf winnings. Poor guy his Cadillac shakes....Just saying

    Re: Trembling at idle

    Well since we are at it.....

    Adding myself to the long list of people with this issue. Have the 2.5 engine and this issue has been going on since the last 1,000miles or so. just hit the 6,000mi mark and its just slowly getting worse and worse. ALWAYS happens right when I am about to release the brake off a traffic light. And just recently been going on at around 40mph. It just feels like a MT car going too slow at a high gear. As if it wants to turn off.

    As others have posted its kinda embarrassing. Just the other day my brother was in the car and he said "What the hell was that??!" I said "ya its this trembling thing that car has". he said " wow 36k car and their is no fix for this????

    I don't want to be "that guy" but I really don't want to spend countless hours at the dealer for an issue that no one seems to find a fix for :-(

    Re: Trembling at idle

    My 2006 Sonata was completely shake free, so why do we all have this issue with a Cadillac. I love this car, but I'm starting to wonder if I made the correct car purchase.

    Both my 13 and now my 14 ATS 2.0 turbos idled very smooth with no shakes or vibration. There has to be something wrong with the ones having problems. I'm pretty confident Cadillac will figure it out.

    @Muffin,
    Mine is v6 and I have this problem....may be not as bad as 4cyl turbo models, but it is there. The sad part is, it keeps getting worse slowly. I have 6500 miles on it now and started noticing vibrations getting stronger than before.

    Did you give up the TV network route you mentioned few weeks ago? Just curious.

    Update:

    I took my car in yesterday and was given a rental while they worked on my car. The dealer said a SW update was made available on 7/31/13 by GM that was to specifically address the rough idle. I picked my car up this afternoon... So far so good, however I only live five minutes from the dealer. Sine the issue was sporadic at best only time will tell if it's truly been addressed. I will update everyone in a few days. Hopefully this resolved the issue for good.
