Haha I have a thread in the DTS section too :) Maybe that Northstar is full of carbon since it probably got babied around everywhere it goes. Funny thing because my car almost wouldn't start yesterday due to reason that I donno, maybe some planets lined up with the northstar and made all the Northstars malfunction?

Either way that's pretty embrassing for GM since Cadillac don't exactly have a good reputation in Europe.

That's what happens when amateurs try to costomize a Northstar.

Let that be a lesson to you! :tisk:

Another blow to the Cadillac name worldwide. I hope GM starts to actually pay attention to some of their reliability issues and try to fix some of their problems. Geez, the President of the United States of America broke down in a Caddy.... embarassing.

Oh c'mon, you can't judge the reliability of an entire marque based ONE car that travels the WORLD that has ONE failure about which you have no knowledge! :rolleyes: Coulda been bad gas. Water in fuel. Wiring jarred loose due to repeated aircraft landings. Or a wiring problem caused by the complete re-engineering and hacking to make almost literally a one of a kind vehicle. Who knows!

I'm glad that Cadillac is always at the forefront of our public image. Does it say to me that GM can't do it right or that it gives Cadillac a bad name? Of course not! :bigroll:

Although I have a love hate relationship with my eldo I will never buy another gm product. I have had several 94 eldo 00 eldo 00 seville. love the cars but the reliability is absolute garbage. Yesterday I did the radiator in my eldo and on the the caddy cannot figure out coil pack grounds burning up problem. Well that was after the tranny failed at 80k and yes it had 2 complete fluid changes before it failed. Also CPS ac fixed and a bunch of other things in the last month. And the day before the seville got a new Power steering pump which gm decided to redesign so i needed new pulleys and a hose it has 59k.
Seems just like poor quality I hate to bash a company I own 3 cars from but enough is enough. Oh and forgot to add the 93 Deville that the engine fell out and I lost the steering at 40 mph. Great engineering.

as stated earlier...that limo was fully custom from front to rear...and bears no resemblance to an actual cadillac besides grill, and badging...it could be ANYTHING causing that issue and as such should not be held against cadillac as a whole...

and a freakin lexus? are you kidding me? lets see how well the lexus holds up when you add a thousand extra pounds (or more) of stretching, body panels, armor, BP glass, communincations equip, etc...then fly it around the world to every location week in and week out! that alone should speak to the capabilities of the "cadillac" in question...

and im sorry some of you have had horrible experiences with cadillacs. my 1982 fleetwood brougham d' elegance (350 diesel) still runs to this day even after not being touched for sometimes 24mo at a time (in storage)...and my 97 deville gets the everliving crap kicked out of it in pittsburgh rush hour everyday, has over 50 dragstrip runs on it, and is modded to boot and still gets me back and forth everyday with every turn of the key to the tune of 15-20mpg in town and a peak of 32.5mpg all highway driving...

i love me my N* cadillacs and i will own another one for my next car...unless my next car is a CTS-V...then i'll be lovin my LS2/6

in closing...cadillac FTMFW!!!

Yup that is embarrassing but I think the points have been made. This in no way is a run of the mill Cadillac. It truly is one of a kind that's been taken apart, hacked and re assembled. Then flown all over the place and driven thousands of miles.

Just for the record though, wouldn't the car re start if it was the CPS.

with a problem in both sensors...no
theoretically it should run with only 1 sensor...but in practice we know thats not entirely true...lol

Yeah, if the car just flat died, it sounds like a fuel problem or possibly an ignition problem (cutting power to the coils). I'm sure no FSM applies to that car anymore. Who knows what wires have been cut and moved and spliced and hacked. Actually, I'm sure there's a very DETAILED list of exactly what was done to what, but none of us are privvy to that I don't guess.

LExus ? Awwww sorry that's even more embarrasing you're the president of the world's most super powerful county and your presidential car is a non American product :thepan: :alchi:

I wonder do you think if it was Bill Clinton's presidential car (Fleetwood) would it break down ? (apart from low fuel )
That's for sure FWBs are still the last ones we can call a Cadillac :alchi:.
'96 FWB vs '07 DTS ....Which one is more classy and deserves being a presidential limo ?
