Well, there are a lot of people in this 'class'. I've been reading about Northstar head gasket problems in Caddy forums for many years. From first 94 models until about 2000 they changed the bolt length and thread pitch which I think helped it somewhat.
You don't actually need the people, you need the big law firm that will take it on. And make $100,000,000 dollars while the people in the class get a certificate that is worth $4,000 off MSRP for purchase of a new Cadillac.
I love our justice system.

I’m sorry to hear about the concerns you’re experiencing, and I was hoping you’d be willing to email me and reiterate the exact concerns you’ve had checked out at your dealership. If you could also email me your VIN, involved dealer and contact information, I can look into this further for you.

Is there a way to call you at GM customer service and discuss before you contact the dealership? I would prefer to do that first and with the information you provide go back to the dealership and try to resolve and if unsucessful than have your department contact them. Hope that would work. Please let me know, thanks.

My glove box latch broke. I opened the box, and removed the latch. While the latch was removed, someone accidentally closed it. I cannot figure out how to get it opened again, to change the latch. Help?

Ok, I don't have a direct answer. But I need to pull the entire glove box on my wife's 2005 Deville to put a 6-disc CD changer in there - had to get to the wire that connects the changer, which is in back of the glove box.
Anyway, I took out all the screws inside the glove box. It still would not pull out. To get it out, you have to pry off the trim piece that goes all around the glove box. I actually use a dandelion weed digger tool to pry it out.
Maybe if you took the entire box out you could get to the latch from the top....

#2560 of 2634 2001 Cadillac Deville Head Gasket - $10.000.00

Well we are another victim of the famous North Star Head Gasket, 2001 Cadillac Deville in perfect condition until the engine light came on, we need a class action suit now!!!! My Mom bought this car brand "New" & it now has 100,000 miles on it & the engine is now dead..... The dealer/service repair told my Mom it will cost her $10,000.00 for the repair, she left the Dealership in tears, my Mom is 72 years old & called me crying, you can never imagine how I feel, My Dad worked for GM for 28 years & this is the memories we will have for the rest of our lives, you trust GM & now you are left with a $10,000.00 bill, this is heartbreaking for our Family, we all drive GM cars, currently we have 5 of them right now, such a sad ending....
Dealership is Frankel Cadillac in Hunt Valley, Maryland!!!!

Sounds way too high to me. Even if this is a new long block, it sounds too much, by thousands. This dealer probably doesn't want to do the job. Doesn't want to pull the motor and tranny, pull everything off, and try to get it all back together and working.
