  1. Consumer Reports' reliability result

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    CR has released their result for the 2008 CTS. Among "upscale cars," which includes the BMW 3-Series, Lexus IS, Audi A4, Acura TL, and so forth, the CTS had the highest problem rate. On the other hand, the actual problem rates appear to be about 20% worse than average for the AWD and 30%...
  2. 04 - 05 V Reliability

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Im new to the CTS world. I had a Benz, and it broke down every 5 minutes so I purchased a DTS. Well needless to say, it is not sporty enough for me. Im thinking about getting an 04 or 05 CTS-V. I was hoping some of you could share with me the problem areas on the cars. I have a really heavy...
  3. Surprising news about my CTS's reliability!

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I contacted a buddy of mine that works at a dealership and had him run the history of my car. He ran all repairs done to it. I bought the car with 59k miles on it, and it now has 74,~400. According to him, the ONLY time it had repair work done on it was in march 2008, and that was when I took...
  4. Newbie question...General reliability '03-'04 vs. '98-'00?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I posted about this in the Northstar forum, but I probably should have posted here. I'm looking for a car for my wife. Truthfully, we were all set to buy a completely loaded Taurus or Sable and be done with it. Not bad basic transportation cars, and they have leather, sunroof, auto climate...
  5. Advance notice: TrueDelta Vehicle Reliability Survey results for the 2008 CTS

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    The press release doesn't go out until midnight, but this forum has been so helpful. So I wanted to let you guys know the results ahead of the release. Bottom line is that the 2008 CTS has the highest repair rate among the 122 results in this set, with 158 successful repair trips per 100 cars...
  6. O2, IAT, MAF sensor reliability on 2000 N*?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    How often do O2, IAT, and MAF sensors fail (or become less accurate) without setting a code? Just curious, with a 2000 Seville at about 116,000.
  7. Cadillac STS reliability

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Because existing sources of auto reliability information left much to be desired, in late 2005 I started conducting my own reliability research at TrueDelta.com. TrueDelta reports absolute stats like "trips to the shop" that make the differences between cars much clearer. Results are updated...
  8. Latest Cadillac CTS reliability results

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I just posted an initial Vehicle Reliability Survey result for the 2008 in that forum, based on 35 responses. For the 2003, 2004, 2005 I had 15 or 16 responses for each year, not enough for a full result. That said, the results ranged from 72 successful repairs per 100 vehicles to 86, so they...
  9. Initial result: 2008 Cadillac CTS reliability

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Thanks to the help of this forum, TrueDelta received 35 responses covering 65 months of ownership for the 2008 CTS. The result of 92 repairs per 100 cars (asterisked owing to a marginal sample size) is worse than average for a 2008, but similar to the results for other first-year GM models...
  10. Is a Buick Riviera 90% of a Eldo, without the Reliability Issues?

    Cadillac or competing brand model ? Why ?
    I've been thinking about a sporty yet luxurious American car that I can use for commuting, without worrying about reliability or fuel economy. I'd love to have a Seville or Eldorado, but it seems like that the 95-99 Buick Riviera combines the best qualities of the Eldorado with the reliability...
  11. GPS reliability

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Just ordered my 3.6 DI FE2 AWD last week, and I'm wondering about the GPS system: How long does it take to acquire the GPS signal after being parked in the garage? If you park it outside, does it maintain the signal when the engine is off? Also, I'm reviewing the the owners' manual and it...
  12. potential '93-'96 Eldorado buyer: reliability?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hi! I'm new here and I am new to Cadillac! I live in The Netherlands (Europe) and I'm crazy about American cars. Currently I own a 1993 Corvette ZR-1 and I love the power of it's V8. Since the Cadillac also has this kind of exotic V8 (32 valve) I was always interested in the Northstar...

  17. First Model CTS Reliability

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    OK, I'm going to buy a Gen 2 CTS but was curious how the first GEN held up. I asked on the GEN 1 board and no one seemed to have more than 40 or 50K. Do you guys know of anyone with high mileage CTS's? I own my cars for a long time. My current 300M has 111K and I probably won't get rid of it...

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Has anyone else had significant issues with the 2007 SRX 6 speed transmission? After 3 months of ownership, we are on our 3rd shop visit with total service time over 28 days. Now they tell us we need a new transmission and they are on back order. Curious if I just have a Lemon or this is a...
