For the past 3 days my car has made a squeaky gargling sound that appears to be coming from underneath the vehicle. I have no idea what it could be. It is not the brakes or the shocks and it does not do it immediately on start-up or while stopping/ accelerating. sometimes 5 mins into the drive the car will just break out screeching and gargling. No idea what it is, but I think it sounds expensive. It is so loud I can hear it with the radio on clearly. Not happy


Any ideas?

haha no, nothing at all. The car is totally fine other than the crazy screeching and gurgling. No feedback from the car and no warnings on the display. Moved to a new neighborhood and the nearest caddy dealer is 40 mins away. I already know they wont be able to replicate it. Making the trip once is plenty bad enough

Have you looked under your car to see if a shield is loose? Might be flapping against something while driving. Also, isn't our warranty good at any GM location?

Good Luck, Marv

not yet, I should crawl under there after work. I believe it does, we have a Buick/GMC dealer in town. I could give them a shot. Is it guaranteed they work on Cadillac vehicles? Made an appointment at the caddy dealer, but I can always cancel.

Definitely a weird one. Good luck, and I agree with Marv about taking that good look underneath. No other simple explanation.

Can Buick dealers perform Cadillac warranty work?

Not a single peep from the car while driving yesterday or this morning. Taking it to the GMC/ Buick dealer tomorrow. They said that they do service Cadillac. I did not ask if they did warranty work specifically, but I will just in case before I drop it off. I just pray they don't give me a chevy sonic or any other teenager vehicle as a loaner if the work takes a while. I have been spoiled by the 50K cadillac loaners :)

I did not look underneath it yet, I figure GMC can do it tomorrow. Just hoping it is an issue that is covered under warranty. Hopefully this is not a scumbag dealership.

You come in with a Cadillac, they'll take care of you like royalty. I hear you'll get a Chevy Aveo for a loaner. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I don't really care as long as it is clean and dependable. My dealer won't even give me a loaner since I am out of warranty. Pricks.

I dropped my car off for warranty work at a cadillac dealer and was promptly given a used, beat to shit PT Cruiser for a loaner. A chevy Aveo would have been a welcome sight.
