  1. Why does Cadillac hate V8 engines?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    The CTS, especially the new coupe, is a knockout and if it had the LS3 or L99 V8 available, it would dominate the 6-cylinder competition (335, G37, Lexus etc). But for some reason Cadillac refuses to give us the V8 except for souped-up versions in the very costly V-series. It doesn't make any...
  2. New Member Intro

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Gentlemen (ladies?), getting ready to become a first time caddy owner (used '09-'10 CTS-V). Currently in a C6Z06 and have a company vehicle, when my company lease is up 8/31 I can take an '11 Avalon or $1,000 mo allowance so I'm going to sell the Z (have a deposit), take the allowance and drive...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Ok, So here goes. My wife drives our '06 CTS 3.6l, we bought it new in Aug '06. The car has 68k miles on it and I maintain it meticulously, i.e. new oil every 6k(of course Mobil 1), air filters, etc. In June of this year she was driving to work, highway, and she feels the car buck and the...

    Hi all, I am currently the owner of a e36 BMW and am on bimmerforums but I am looking at purchasing a 2001 cadillac deville dhs. I am not very familiar with caddys and have actually read and heard nothing but horrible things about these cars and the northstar engine. On to the questions.. the...
  5. V-Series Performance Academy or V-Series Performance Lab?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Because the V-Series Performance Academy on my chosen date is full, Cadillac is offering to allow me to attend the V-Series Performance Lab on the next day. Does anybody know what the difference is between the "Academy" and the "Lab"? The webpages look identical...
  6. Bought a V and new to the site

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Well about 2 weeks ago on R&R I bought a 2005 CTS-V - Stealth Grey with 37K on the odometer. Got a great deal since a friend was a salesman at the dealership. Had hazed headlights but thats fixed now thanks to another friend who repairs paint/rims/headlights. Hooked me up for 50 bucks -...
  7. Should I Buy 05 CTS?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I found an 05 cts being sold by a private owner with 68,000 miles reasonably priced about $1,000 below blue book. The car is a 2005 cts 2.8 v6 and has a 6 speed manual transmission. Its a nice looking car, very clean inside and out but i am worried about some of the problems that i have herd...
  8. The end of the DTS?

    Cadillac DTS Forum - 2006 through 2012
    I have always loved Cadillacs. The first time I rode in one back as a child and I felt the plush leather seats and the smooth powerful drive, I was hooked! The only other car that came close was the Towncar. I was reading that they have stopped making the DTS and their new flagship car is a V6...
  9. Positive or funny things that happened to SRX owners

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum (2010-2016)
    Just stopped at a red light and a Lexus 350 owner pulls next to me and makes all kind of gestures for me to open my window. She proceeded to say that this may be funny but she was interested in a new car and wanted my opinion about my car. I had 30 seconds to tell her how much I loved my car...
  10. Strange things keep happening.....

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum (2010-2016)
    I've had my baby for a couple months now, and I've started to notice some strange things keep happening: 1. When parked and the engine off, but I'm sitting in the car, the radio (was OFF) will start making clicking noises. 2. Some mornings when I get in my car to go to work, my fog lights will...
  11. car runs great but was diagnosed by dealership with a blown hg

    i purchased a 99 eldorado a little over a month ago with 100k and it ran great and is in perfect condition. a month after buying it the cars display reads check coolant level. i had the coolant topped off at a jiffylube after driving for about an hour because i noticed it was slightly...
  12. Behind the wheel of Cadillac's flagship

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Parked conspicuously at GM's Milford proving grounds during a visit there a few weeks ago, the Fleetwood looks dignified. Its sheet metal could easily be described as edgy though boasts nothing that could be called daring, but its anonymity is at best discreetly handsome and at worst not in the...
  13. GM ! Manual V owner recommendation...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    K, guys heres the deal. As a manual V owner the electronic parking break needs to be either tossed out or tweaked. I was at a gas station and i flicked the switch and went to the pump. Right as I turn around what do i see as my v slowly starts to roll. I jump in and break and find out that the...
  14. Hood Ornament Tale

    Cadillac DTS Forum - 2006 through 2012
    My confusion is now complete! OK guys I read all the hood ornament threads I could stomach and now I've got to bother you for some help. I have a black on black 2007 DTS Luxury II. I wanted a hood ornament and my wife when to the local Caddy dealer Parts department (the same dealer we bought...
  15. SRX deal in Canada?

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum (2010-2016)
    I saw the sales report, GM sold about 400 SRX in Canada last month. But how come I only saw SRX once in Vancouver since last year! Is there any Vancouver owner here? I'm looking for the SRX for a while, currently with the employee price, we can get 3-5K off from MSRP. Can anyone share your deal...
  16. If it's good enough for Chad...

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    ...then it's good enough for me. :) I think I somehow convinced myself that a Chad-style Buick would be something slick to dick around with. I think I may pick up a not too shabby 1992 Buick Roadmonster Limited, 238k miles, dark blue/dark blue cloth, one owner, nice driver with minimal to...
  17. 2011 Infiniti QX56.....say whaaaaat???

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I saw one of these last night at the local Infiniti dealer and had to make a post about it. Big luxury SUV's need hard-edged, square lines to really look good. When Infiniti tries to apply it's swooping curves and lines that work well on the G & M, it doesn't work so well on a 3 ton...
  18. Should I trade my G8 GT for a CTS-V?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Ok here is the background story. Bought an 09 G8 GT loaded in March w/ 3k on the clock for 27k. The week after I bought it the drive shaft had issues and needed to be replaced. It took 5 weeks to get that done w/ a rental, had it for 1 week got in an accident, took 6 weeks to get fixed after 2...

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I found this on the Cadillac Great Britain web site. It's curious that it is not available in the US, It's available in both sedan and wagon and has an available turbo engine. http://www.cadillaceurope.com/pdf/Cadillac_en.pdf
  20. How many days does in the shop.....

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    How long does your car live in the shop?? Mine is on day number 19 ( 15 business days) and counting. I was going to call the shop and see what hours they allow visitors for the sick patients. Mine might be in isolation so nothing else catches what it has. :eek::eek: The shop is trying to find a...
