Is this a real Cadillac customer service or someone looking to collect vin numbers. I mean they offer no real help or suggestions.

Hello B1n2fra,

We are definitely a part of the Cadillac Customer Care team. We unfortunately are not technicians or engineers, so we are not able to assist with technical questions. Our work is in customer relations and we are able to assist in multiple ways, such as be a liaison between the dealership and yourself, run checks on your VIN, and we also document concerns our customers are having and make sure they are received by the correct group. Are you currently experiencing an issue that you would like me to assist with?

I've often wondered what exactly is your business model and process flow? You document concerns where? And make sure they are received by what correct group? I had/have an issue with engine noise in my STS and had several exhanges with Cadillac Customer Svc and nothing became of it. Could you elaborate on the role and purpose of the Cadillac Customer Care Team? Thanks.

FWIW, I've been contact with Customer Care for over 3 months, because my dealership refused to cover a simple part warranty claim. The first customer care rep I spoke to was utterly useless. He agreed that there was no reason that it shouldn't be covered, but did nothing but essentially relay what I told him to the dealer, and then call and give me their reply. I had already had this conversation with the service manager the day I was at the dealer, so I don't see what the customer service rep thought he was going to accomplish.

I talked to 5 more reps from customer care! All of whom agreed that the part should be covered, all of whom were appalled and one of whom "ashamed" by the dealers refusal to honor the warranty, but only the 6th person did more than agree and apologize, and actually got a result.

Yeap if only dealerships were that way when you go into to buy a vehicle. Funny how the attitude changes the minute you sign that sale sheet.

Hello oldcaddybuyer,

Concerns and issues are documented into an internal source that is shared throughout the company and can be accessed by multiple departments. We are here to answer product questions. When there is a vehicle issue, we act as a liaison between the customer and the dealer. In our motto the dealer is who offers the frontline technical support. We will work with the dealer to make sure all the proper internal resources are leveraged. If the dealer is unable to solve the vehicle issue, we will work with the proper internal sources to see if there are additional actions that can be taken.

thanks for clarifying this Laura ... there has been a lot of assumption and misunderstanding of your position, role and ability among the membership here

in the future this thread will serve as a good place to point people who need this clarified still

These forums are also a good place to vent...especially when your dealership does nothing for you except try and rip you off.

Do these things happen at rolls Royce dealers? Or do their owners just not care because they're so damn rich.

i just was walking past your old AIR pump today and thought to send you a message to check and see if that had been resolvedSupposedly everything's all set. I have an appointment Monday morning, but customer service wants to make sure the part is installed and working before we get rid of the part. I'll let you know on Monday.

You don't have to go that high up the chain. Lexus prided themselves on customer service when the brand was introduced, and as far as I hear, it's remained that way. My aunt has bought 3 new Accords from the same dealer starting in '01, and their service has been phenomenal since day 1.

Gotcha. And I know for a fact there are caddy dealers out there that do an outstanding job with service but clearly poor service is prevalent. If I have a Nissan, and I take it to the Nissan dealer, I expect outstanding work. If the things that I've seen on this site, on all different forums, cts, sts, my experiences in the v forum, happened at a NISSAN dealership I'd be freakin pissed! LET ALONE a Cadillac dealer.
