I have 1 major complaint about the need for a timing chain on this car. While a friend made mention of how "noisy" the engine had become, I frankly did not hear it running from inside the car with the windows up and music playing. Finally, when I did have need to take the car to the dealer, I was informed that the timing chain repair would be about $2,500 to $3,000 dollars. I've owned many cars in my life and always buy them new. In my 50 years of buying cars, I have NEVER had to have a timing chain replaced! My car is serviced regularly and I use only Mobil 1 oil so I don't understand why Cadillac has not told everyone that they have extended their warranty to cover the replacement of timing chains on engines that are requiring it? I mean, with such low miles......I think my visit to the dealership was when the car was about 6 years old and has just under 50,000 miles! Will Cadillac do anything for me? I previously had a Mercedes before buying my first Cadillac. No timing chain problems with my Mercedes or any other vehicles like that over my lifetime! I should have contacted Cadillac earlier but with the company going through bankruptcy, I thought it was out of the question to think they might actually "step-up" and do the right thing. After Obama got done stripping the company of any shareholder equity, I thought you had to be a UAW member to get any decent treatment. Am I asking for too much or how can I be convinced to continue to be a Cadillac customer? Thanks.
    Hello jcd7007,

    I apologize for the timing chain issue you are experiencing. I want to do additional research on your behalf. Please private message me with your contact information, VIN, current mileage and the name and location of the dealership you have worked with.

    Thanks,

    Laura M.

    If you expected them to do something you're off your rocker. Short of calling a dealer for you and wasting your time getting your hopes up they are useless.

    Yeah, starting to see and realize that the Cadillac "customer care" people are glorified appointment setters, nothing else.

    Re: 2005 SRX Timing Chain

    The problem has been aired and discussed. Thread closed.

    buckimike, In order to form that opinion you must have done a fearsome amount of study in these forums since your join date of 12/22/13 late PM.

    Your sunroof drain leak question in another member's thread in SRX and the reply from CCC merely says that IF you want dealership help, CCC would pitch in. Nothing more. They followed the drain question for another member, then you chimed in.

    CCC is used for dealership interaction and warranty resolution problems - they have nothing to do with vehicle maintenance and repairs as such.
