I have my BLS 3 years and in the last year it has needed a new six speed auto boxs numerous electrical and sensor faults and a new alternator ( this is a know problem and Saab Cadillac are replacing the alternator free of charge.) which have all been dealt with by Stratstones Cadillac and Saab Birmingham they have been great but the journeys have been hell 140miles round trip on the M6. They just carried out there last piece of warranty work last week problem with stability control and now i havea knock throught the steering and the engine seems to move alot when you select Reverse or Drive do any one know what the problem could be ?
Automobile(s): BLS now gone RIP now Saab 9-3 Aero TTID Hirsch'd
Re: help my bls
my alternator went a few days before Xmas in 2008 and was replaced.
I have noticed a "knock" when selecting reverse but it's only a small one and never caused a problem,
I've put it down to it just selcting the gear, mine doesnt happen all the time thought - does yours ?
Hi sorry for the late reply. the Knock on the gear box was cured by replacing the gear box. the Knock in the steering system was caused by the Airbag not being refitted properly after the replacement of the stability control system.
they engine movement was reduced by new bushes on the mounts
sorry i cannot be of any help to you. even with all the problems i still love my caddy but wish it was easier to get accessories for it.
i am thinking of having the engine BHP increased to 180bhp as it is supposed to give a better fuel return.
My diesel never gives more that 34mpg at bit disappointing as my Vectra same car gives 45 all the time.
