: Woohoo, 10 for 10 march built cars with loose bolts..

Just so you guys know, if your car is built on march, then you need to grab a 10mm socket and go tighten the TOP left bolt on your throttlebody. EVERY one i get here that was a march build has that one bolt loose or missing... Just a heads up..

Hopefully, GM found the problem at the factory and FIRED IT!

Argh...I have a March build. Will wait for a pic...

I see a lot of people saying they have some built/quality. I thought that a high-end car as the Cadillac would have more quality control. Don't get me wrong, I have a V on order but still, i'm surprised to read how many people have bolts/fluid/fitting issues!

Thanks for your input on this throttle body bolt issue. I checked my throttle body bolt you mentioned, sure enough it was loose that I could put 1 1/2 turns to snug it up!!!!! Thanks for your input ! My car was an 03/09 build

maybe the throttle body bolt tightening robot was suffering from the y2k9 bug. or it was the chinese hacking into the software programming...

My power steering fluid was low when I got mine so you might want to check that too.

Checked my bolt for a 03/09 build and it was tight.
