  1. Good news (Reliability) all around

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    Good news for American Ford and GM, and Good news for Mercedes! And of course........... Chrylser has gone to hell. Hopefully we will eventually get the actual results, after JD Power makes their money..... I wondered when the GM stuff was going to be noticed. My 2008 Cadillac has been...
  2. Reliability

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Hi everyone. I consider cts-v as my next way of transportation but I have couple of questions and concerns. I drive currently 06 M5 and my lease will be over in several months. So, it's time. For many reasons I usually buy or lease new cars. The last time I had an American car was probably 15...
  3. Manual Transmission Question---CTS

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I'm seriously considering buying a new 2010 CTS. I have always owned cars with manual transmissions, but usually German or Japanese makes that sell manual-equipped cars in large quantities. My understanding is that less than 2% of CTS's come with a manual transmission. Could that present a...
  4. What was that about reliability?

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Look at this: So are they saying that, in addition to the DTS, the STS and CTS are also dependable?
  5. Satisfaction with 2010 SRX (Performance and Reliability)

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Ladies and Gents, Not a newbie to the forums -- but a newbie to the SRX (my mom had a 1st gen N* AWD back in '04 for about ... 4 days until the new STS came out); I'm considering one of these for my soon to be wife and child and looking for *substantial* thoughts or concerns. Rebates...
  6. Cadillac CTS Reliability Rate

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Hi, I'm a new member, and am currently looking for a Jaguar S-Type, but because those are so hard to find I've decided to buy a CTS until I find my Jaguar. I have researched and studied jags to a T, and now I'd like to do the same for the CTS, I need to extract every bit of information I can...
  7. Reliability of the newer DTS

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    I am just soooo glad that I decided to replace my older 2000 DTS (which I loved) with a newer, what I thought would be more reliable 2008 model (which I hate). This morning I was on my way to a doctors appointment when all of a sudden I lost almost all power on the car and the dash started...
  8. Is there a bulletproof aftermarket ecu?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    'cuz it seems like a good market opportunity... my '04 has just pitched a fit for the 2d time, refusing to crank, keeping the key and flashing instrument lights when I needed to go to the airport I'd really rather not replace the ecu again a couple of years from now. I love almost everything...

  11. 4.X engine reliability statistics?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    Most members of this forum probably know that the later 4.X series engines were quite reliable. I remember reading a handful of times that the 4.9L was one of the lowest warranty claim engines that GM ever produced. Anyone have any evidence of this or was this just a rumor?
  12. Thinking about Escalade is reliability?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    When our 2009 Escalade comes off lease in 6 months, we were thinking of going with a 2010 or 2011 Escalade Hybrid. I was wondering how the reliability of the hybrid system is for you guys that have them. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! SG
  13. Reliability differences between 07-08-09?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I'm getting close to buying the ESV. I've pretty much only been looking at certified ones. Obviously, the 07's are cheaper than 08's, and there's even a couple used 09's in the country. Is there any major reason to avoid the '07, given the choice? It's the first year in this series, and I've...
  14. 4.5 Reliability

  17. 93 vs 96 - Reliability concerns

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I'm looking to add another Caddy to the family, but don't know anything about the 90's models as far as ride and reliability. We've had an 86 deVille Touring Sedan since it was new, but its known to be one of the more problematic years (and I've spent alot of $$$ over the years fixing it...
