  2. Can't believe C4C was a year ago now.

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    August 2009 was a dark period in the automotive business. Cash For Clunkers started 8/1/09 and ended 8/31/09. I'll never forget how many angry posts were on here, about all the good cars that were getting destroyed, and what for? So someone could get into a new car that they couldn't really...
  3. Rim size?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I am wanting to put new rims on my 2003 CTS base. I dont want to change any of the suspension though. I have heard of some 20's rubbing before. I dont really care about size i just want something that will fill the wheel wells nicely and look good. Therefore, my question is this. what size rim...
  4. ac delco vs aftermerket

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    im sure this has been discussed on this forum before but i didn't see any tags related to this specfic issue. the issue is that the mechanic i use told me he only uses ac delco parts because of superior quality. i think its because he gets his parts from the dealer at cost and marks them up for...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion Not sure if I agree with some of the picks, but the Sonata and Fusion are nice cars. The Accord and Corolla are just a given.

    My wife & I went down to a Cadillac dealer yesterday and today. We're looking into a Crystal Red 2010 SRX. Sticker is $44100. Luxury package, navi, huge moonroof, front and rear parking sensors....the whole magilla. Bad news is that we are thinking of trading in my V for it. I had it...
  9. So it's been 8 months since the vibration started

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    8 months I've been trying to get the vibration to go away on my car....I either get told it's in my head or that its the road I'm feeling and they can't fix that. If its the "road" then my cadillac drives worse then my wifes Kia cause her car is comfortable/smooth on the highway and mine feels...
  10. Merged threads - Trunk lid rear spoiler / wing / lip options

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    This is the $120 Pre-Painted Ebay Spoiler. I'll have to rave 100% on this, seller had it painted and to my door in less then 5 days. Paint is a damn good match, spoiler is great quality. Again this one is installed with 3M tape due to the stupid quotes I got to drill my trunk but ti does come...

  14. Cafe Standards

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I was looking in the ATS forums and one of the threads is talking a lot about future engines and cafe standards. My question is how is cafe going to be scored? Is GM as a whole getting scored, or each individual brand? Also is there any loopholes for work trucks/vans. Not to sound to whiny...
  15. Idler Control Valve

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Just had my engine replaced, 97 Catera. Used engine, with 73000 miles. The repair shop took a month to remove and install the new engine. I got it back, the 1st day I drove it, Check Engine light comes on, and it runs very warm, unless I turn the A/C on..???? Now the guy says I need this Idler...
  16. Squeaky armrest fix?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I have an 06 CTS-V. Vs are great but the armrests -- cut down supposedly to allow room to shift -- are lousy. Like many V owners, I have replaced the armrest with one out of a CTS -- an 03 CTS, in my case. Heightwise it's great, but it squeaks. Like, a lot. Is there a fix for this? Would buying...
  17. Great Service from North bay cadillac in NY

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    North Bay Cadillac exceeded my expectations in every way. No more sun roof noise or wheel click. This is the second dealer to attempt the wheel click. First dealer, noise never went away, North Bay so far so good. Out of all the dealers I have visited in NY North Bay is my number one pick...
  18. Florida Drivers

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I always hear people complaining about "Florida drivers". I never like lumping groups of people into a single category - but sometimes I get the feeling the complainers are right. It seems like people down here are less concerned with their driving abilities. Since I moved down here about six...

  20. I have an embarrassing confession for you guys...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I hate how much I like this car! I am going on a road trip this weekend for a wedding out west. I went to my folk’s house and borrowed my Dad’s 2005 Focus ST since it gets 30 MPG and my Dodge gets 16 on the highway. Now this car has been in the family for 5 years and has 101K miles. But man is...
