I had the same problem with mine. Cadillac sucks at this. I was on the interstate when this happened. The connection between the transmission is cut off so that you don't ruin the transmission. However the engine will remain on so that you can use the power brakes. The car was under warranty when this happened. The dealership fixed it but the car doesn't drive the the same. Before it used to just glide. Now you notice each and every gear change. The gear changes are so rough and there is no power the car drives like a cement truck. I suggest people stay away from Cadillac until they take time to fix this issue. Instead of launching new models take time and build a car worthy of the name. Reliability on these models sucks ......

Apr 12, 2013 (9:45 am)
my parents own the car and at around 10K miles they allegedly had transmission replaced by cadillac dealer. they were accused of driving with 2 feet causing the transmission to fail!!! now the car is back at the dealer and once again for the transmission that was replaced about a year ago and car has almost 13K miles on it total!!! once again the driving with 2 feet has come up however, my parents haven't been the only ones driving the car since health problems have forced them to rely on me driving them in their car...i do not drive with 2 feet and i haven't observed either of them doing that before i took over driving the car. dealer is saying that GM may not cover a new tranny since they just replaced one and now i am wondering if it was even replaced or 'fixed' old one. either way SHOULD A CAR WITH LESS THAN 13K MILES NEED TRANSMISSION WORK TWICE IN A LITTLE OVER A YEAR??? WHY IS USING 2 FEET OR NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT...I WOULD THINK THE BRAKES WOULD HAVE FAILED BEFORE A TRANSMISSION

my 2004 did the same thing, this is a manufactueres defect but cadillac will not reconise it, the same as the timing chaines on the 3.6, seems like the 2004 model year is not included with the timing chain warranty only 2005 and up, but the 2004 3.6 chaines are failing on people too.with a car like cadillac to put profits before doing the right thing, (to fix defective chaines, transmissions, coolant lines and radiators) i will never buy another cadillac again, cadillac is not worthy of my hard earned money.

My transmission in my 2010 CTS has dropped out three times in the last two months. I have had a loaner way too much. The quality of service from Cadillac has been poor as well as the treatment by Cadillac themselves.
I know most of us only post when we are unhappy with a product. I am quite active on another Cadillac forum with over 2000 posts, most of them positive. I cannot post anything positive about my transmission taking a dump three times in two months.

I am sorry to hear that you have had trouble with the transmission in your Cadillac. Have you spoken to anyone from Cadillac Customer Care about this repeated issue? If not we'd be more than happy to document your issues in a customer assistance case.

#178 of 182 2008 CTS Transmission Failure
Sep 09, 2013 (6:03 pm)
I own a 2008 CTS 4 and just experience my first major failure. The car has 104,561 miles (just over factory warranty of course) and the transmission and transfer case according to the dealership are toast. Estimated costs are expected to exceed $7500 which is cost prohibitive. I love the car but it doesnt seem reasonable to repair it at this point. I am going to get crushed on the loan.
Is there a way to work with Cadillac or GM on a reasonable resolution to this? I have been a GM owner for my entire life so I would hope that they would look at the perfect maintenance record and be able to cover at least part of the expense.

You may want to consider contacting an auto wrecker who has a wrecked, low mileage 2008 CTS with powertrain intact. It may be a cheaper way to go in order to prolong the life of the vehicle. Good luck.
