  1. I'm pondering a Porsche Boxster.

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    MORE LIKE 'POOR'SCHE Seriously though, I'm thinking about it. I've looked at all the warnings, all the quirks, all the hazardously expensive repairs. It seems like most of what goes wrong happens during the warranty period, so by now (8-12 years, 60-100k) all of it has been ironed out or...

  3. Stopping windows mid-way ...

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I like the express power windows, but every now and then I want to stop them mid-way. With the window already open, no problem stopping them on their way up ... just pull up momentarily on the switch to make them stop. BUT ... this doesn't work if you have them closed and want to stop them...
  4. What are the signs of a worn Carrier in AWD STS?

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    I am new to posting and came across this problem so I am asking for some "HELP!" I got a very good deal on a 2006 STS 4. I recently took it on the road to FL from NY and started getting this clackitty noise form underneath the car around the center. Mostly form the front of the car, but...
  5. The end of the DTS?

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    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...
  6. Speedometer all goofy on 99' Catera

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Hi, I'm Robb from the mid-Michigan area and I'm thinking about buying my brothers 99' Catera. It has some issues. The one that annoys me the most is the speedometer is off. The only time it's right is around 55mph. If I want to go 30mph the speedo reads 40mph. When above 55mph the speedo is off...
  7. There's something wrong with my transmission

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    None of these problems were present before I had my transmission "serviced" about 500 miles ago. My SLS has 111000 miles, and it's recommended to change the fluid at 100K, so I figured it would be OK. So I took it to the dealer, and specifically told them not to flush the trans, only drop the...
  8. In case you thought of buying a Benz....

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    When I was shopping for my 08 CTS I have to admit that one of the other cars I was considering was an E Series MBenz. I am so glad I didn't get one. Here is an interesting page about the "joys" of Mercedes ownership. Mercedes Benz Lemon Problem Vehicles Pick a the "Experience...
  9. Trans software update caused new problem?

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    I recently purchased a black/black 2005 STS4 V8 1SG. I also work for the automotive group where I bought the vehicle. The vehicle was VERY well taken care of by a rather wealthy elderly couple who traded it on a new Lexus LS460. Every service that was every recommended was done and documented...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007

  11. Clutch bleeding... WTF am I doing wrong.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    OK. Engine is back in the car. Started to bleed the clutch on Sat and I got a really nice puddle under the car. This was on a stock slave, and a LAPD remote bleeder. I never got any pressure at all in the peddle. So I left it for the day and drowned my sorrows knowing that I was going to...
  12. 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE. What do we think?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I'm thinking about buying one of these for the wife. We went to the dealership and test drove it. Fully loaded with all the bells and whistles in comes out at $23,900. Not very fast but great mpg and great handling. I like the styling too. What do we think of it?
  13. Ass raised up? Something wrong with air level?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Hey guys, I have been noticing some bouncyness and the last couple days I thought my front looked lower than my back, wich I thought was because I needed new front shocks, whcih i do... But I also noticed the back of the car is raised higher than normal and there was water coming out a of a...
  14. 09 Prices ?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Can someone throw some numbers my way on what a low mileage < 5k mi 09 V loaded (w recaros, roof, wheel) would be worth? There are a few non-recaro dealer cars on the "bay" for 59k obo. What does CF say? Thanks in advance!
  15. Finally My CTSV is in my garage. Detailed review below for everyone.

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Well I have been absent since the whole dealership debacle but I just got the car yesterday. GM Cadillac representatives have called me and admitted and apologized on the poor dealership behavior not only in my area but across the USA. They assured me they are in the launch phase of an entirely...
  16. Could the parts list just be WRONG?!

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Looking at the 1998-2004SevillePartsList.pdf (a wonderful thing!) I see one part number for my 2002 with "soft ride" (RPO-FE1); but I also see the same part number for the 1998-2001 models with real time damping (RPO-F45), as well as the 2002-2004 models with "sport" suspension (RPO-FE3) with...
  17. What is wrong with my stereo????

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Hello everyone, I am having major problems with my 2003 cts stock bose stereo. First the volume control stopped working properly, then the sound started cutting in and out, and finally no sound is coming out at all. The head unit has power and is playing cd's but I'm getting no sound at all...
  18. What is wrong with my headlights!?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    So I turn on my headlights and the driver side doesnt turn on. I turn the switch off and on several times and it turns on...not more than 3 seconds later, the passenger side turns off with the driver side still on! I turn the switch off and then back on, they both come on. WTF!? This is a major...
  19. LS430 - Out of Rehab

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I decided to buy an 05 or 06 Lexus LS430 for my next daily driver. (It is the best sedan I've ever used to transfer my wife from her wheelchair.) My target vehicle was a custom luxury level (all the goodies except back seat upgrades and air suspension), about 30K miles, in gray (flint mica) or...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Nav was working fine, now if i eject the nav disc to see the compass on the nav screen is shows as pointing south east when the truck is actually faicng north. The compass in the rear view mirror is working fine. So when i am driving the navigation is all wrong because it shows me as driving in...
