    Yes, sort of... Tomm is modifying some for forum members that work great. You will have to get in on this fast as it looks like he is making another limited run.

    Yeah there's a TSB on a squeaking seat. Dealership should be able to find and fix it.

    After 31K miles:

    The A/V plugs in the center console replaced
    Squeaky driver's seat
    Switch for driver's side mirror replaced

    That's about (knock on wood) it!

    Re: Replaced Parts Thread

    Kicking this thread back up.

    Since the last post I've had a left lower control arm replaced due to squeaking/squealing when it was real cold out and coming to a stop. (think was was in Jan)

    Today they replaced the right rear wheel bearing and hub as it was making a loud roaring sound after you got above about 40mph. All quiet now.

    Also I was told my rear brake pads have about 10% left. Those are still the stock OEM pads which I'll replace with Hawks. The car has almost 36K miles on it. So you owners who haven't replaced them yet keep an eye out as you near 30-35K miles if you're running the stock pads.

    rear seal replaced at 2200 miles and again after recall notice
    transmission switch on column replaced - couldn't find PARK and would not turn off
    replace front rotors and all pads (upgraded)
    tires - summer (GY GS-D3) and winter (Advan S4) at 17k

    Otherwise a very reliable automobile!

    Bob
    Bob, did you replace the front rotors and pads because of horrible squeeling? If I brake softly or hard - no squeel, but under medium braking, full of squeels

    Re: Replaced Parts Thread

    just bought my '08. The VIS showed rt headlight replaced twice due to moisyure. Both front wheel bearings replaced. Battery replaced 3 times and mant many roadside assistance calls. I took it in to the dealer the day after I bought it:
    cruise control inop --- replaced stalk switch
    lane dept warning inop----replace body control module
    auto rain wipers --- replaced body control module
    ashtray would not close -- replace ashtray
    rubber hose hanging under car --- refastened trans vent hose

    There is a plastic shield missing under the engine that the dealer says will void my warranty if i don't replace it, but they wont replace it under warranty because they dont know what happened to it. i pointed out that all service has been done by cadillac and if the shield fell off it was due to a tech not installing it correctly after an oil change. no luck so far. $120 for the part 1 hr of labor, bs flag on that!

    Re: Replaced Parts Thread

    Hmm that's kinda strange they won't replace it via the warranty. Unless they can show or prove the owner was at fault, one would just assume it fell of or wasn't put back on after some maintenance. Really shouldn't be an issue for them to do, they get reimbursed.

    Although there are some "strange" dealerships out there.

    Just got a catalytic converter replaced on my 08. Got a check engine light a couple of times and they found the converter bad.

    The service record on the car shows a PCM sensor replaced sometime before I bought it (it was a dealership demo car).

    Cats and wheel bearings don't seem to be too uncommon.

    Driving into work this morning my left front TPS sensor has gone on the fritz. Guess I'll have to take it in to that service department. (shudder)

    Edit- The TPS has started reading again while I went out to lunch, so will see if it holds or goes.

    Have owned my 13k mi. 08 for 2 weeks. According to service history, original owner had radio replaced twice. I had both headlights and steering rack replaced immediately.

    Re: Replaced Parts Thread

    i have a lockpick for my 2008. I've exchanged it 3 times and still does the same thing. It goes into "lockpick mode" on it's own. If you're navigating, i'll look down and see that I'm in that mode and the nav is not moving. Pretty irritating when you miss a turn due to 'lockpick mode". No rhyme or reason why or when it does it. The L shop told me that they tested the units i returned and they worked perfectly. Must be an anomaly with my car only. Other than that annoyance, it works great.
    I notice that my nav is off by several houses as well. I recalibrate often and still it's off. BTW, don't waste your money on the 2010 nav disk upgrade. It's a POS. My 2008 infiniti (same navteq) is more up to date. Navteq blames it on GM, saying they give them the data and if they don't choose to use it, oh well. GM's answer is "sorry, no returns on nav disks".
