View Full Version : It's under warranty - Why do I have to drive a BROKE DOWN car?!?

06-05-12, 12:14 AM
2007 STS-V 20,000/miles. Check engine light came on and 1st dealer could not find problem. Said it was a misfire and they reset the light and gave the car back. 20 miles later, light comes on again and is blinking, car wants to die and is not responsive when I press the gas. 2nd dealer says it's the catalytic converter. Since the part is not readily available, they are requiring me to return the loaner and drive my broken car until they get the part. Cadillac warranty people say they understand my concern with driving a car that won't respond and wants to die, but if the dealer says I can drive it, Cadillac will not continue to pay for the loaner. Even if the car would stay running, is it safe to drive like this, will it cause more damage? Since it's under warranty, why won't Cadillac cover it? I drive 35 to 50 miles a day.

Thanks in advance,
