    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Hello everyone, I recently purchased a 07 cts-v with 13k miles. I just had a couple of questions about some of the things Ive read on the forum. 1. Ive read some literature saying that after 2006, Cadillac fixed the rear differential problem that was causing the wine in...
  3. Thinking of selling my car for a V - take two

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I am considering selling my current car (information concerning car deemed inappropriate for forum) and getting into a CTS-V. I've read about the 04/05 being more prone to rear end failure, but hadn't heard much concerning the 06/07. Are these still prone, and does anyone have any...

  7. A few questions, sorry if they are repetitive...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    After a few days with this car, I've a few questions about it: Where do you guys shift? I've hit the damn rev limiter about 4 times already. Mine's an LS2 car if that matters (dunno if the limiter is different on the 6). I try to shift right before the needle swings past the first red hash...
  8. 2004 V with Magna Charger Reliabiltiy

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Are there any related reliability issues? If I am looking at purchasing one. Also, what sort of value would you place on an 04 with it, a Borla Exhaust, and Magnetek ECU? I'm not all too keen on the idea of the super charger, and prefer the 07 but price may change. It has 30,000mi and is...

  10. Motor Mounts

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    My 2005 CTS-V "diesels" after shut down. From what I've read on the forum, that means the liquid filled motor mounts are shot? The wonderful car runs like a scalded cat. Is there any long term damage that may be done? Thanks.
  11. Vibration

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Lately I have been getting a vibration from my right front wheel. The intensity of the vibration will change depending on the speed I travel. I took it to Sam's and had my buddy balance the tire, but it only helped slightly. My dad said that it could be the tire, so tonight I decided to rotate...
  12. Sold the V....and new owner blew up the diff

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    As my other post mentions, I sold my modified V on Tuesday of last week. I get a text message from the new owner yesterday that the diff blew up. Didn't even own it 5 days! The car has the Gforce1320 half shaft on it too, and from what I understand it happened during a roll. When I sold the...

    I have an 04 CTS-V (in service date is Mar05) with 53K on it. It is stock except for a BMR diff brace I added after the diff bushings were replaced. The CPO warranty runs out in Mar and I have had a few trips to the dealer for a new alternator, motor mounts, diff bushings, and they recently...
