    Timing Chain Warranty for '07 CTS

    Winning...........not Whining ................

    I got a letter today from GM.
    Much to my surprise & great joy, it states that they are giving a 10 year or 193,000 km. warranty on this problem, from date of going into service. That gives me over 100 k. km's or at least 5 more yrs. WOO HOO !

    Argent1,

    Did your chain fail? Or did they just extend your warranty?

    I recieved my letter yesterday, very happy about the situation. Took the car in for an oil consumption survey and it used 2.5qt of mobil1 in 3k miles. $89 for the oil change and $20 for the extra two quarts. Am waiting to hear back from them, any advice on how to procede and not get hosed, car has 68k on it now and I am at the end of the 2007 powertrain warranty this month.

    I think if the owners of 2006 and below would start a writing campaign we could get cadillac to include other years as well! Couldn't hurt!

    Sounds good to me. Mine is an '06 and surely it is mechanically the same as an '07. I will write a letter.

    I sure hope they will eventually add the '06 to this guarantee but I wonder ....

    Re: Timing Chain Warranty for '07 CTS

    The simple question again is ....why is the 07 model so special that it gets the warranty while other years are left out.
    I wonder if this needs to be posted in the Customer Care Representative threads to get a reasonable answer on Cadillac's reasoning for this.
    It just doesn't make any sense to me and I am sure a lot of others as well.

    I would like to see ALL LY7's included in this...'04-'06's have the EXACT same problem but yet no letter for us Does not look good on GM's part.

    I had heard some rumbles about Impala axle spindles failing prematurely and GM claiming that it was the "Old GM" and that the "New GM" was not responsible .
