I have a 2003 CTS, 80,000 miles, its sitting in my driveway, last week I was driving and the car completely just shut off, almost like it ran out of gas. It had a full tank. Then I tried to crank it and it was trying to start but wouldnt crank all the way. I let it sit for 10 min and it started...attempted to drive it and it died again, do you have any idea whats going on? A few people say it may be the fuel filter? Some say a sensor???

a used (obviously) 2004 CTS, 58K miles, black on black...I sat in it and I must say that the seat was quite comfortable...no time to drive it, but I was quite impressed with the interior...
I could add CTS to my never-ending list of cars I almost hope to buy one day, assuming I live that long...

Couldn't agree more. Relative to my Cigarette boat that gets 1mpg with twin 415hp 502ci engines and weighs about 7-9,000 lbs the milage on any car is good
If you can't afford the gas, it's probably not the car for you

My car is doing the same thing. When I try to start it, it acts like it is going to start but doesn't. The battery is fine and I have a full tank of gas. After letting it sit, it will eventually start but then it dies again. I took it to the dealership and the computer comes back with nothing wrong and no codes. They don't know what is wrong. Did you ever find out what is wrong?

You can play DVD videos, but only when in park.
#6570 of 6595 RATTLING NOISE FROM HOOD MAYBE AC
Aug 08, 2008 (8:52 am)
Hey guys I am hearing a rattling noise from under the hood of my 2003 CTS. When I turn the AC off the noise is less. When the AC is on the noise is louder. Any ideas?

My first thought would be to check the bearings on the AC compressor.

I have experienced this in my 2005 CTS as well. At first I thought that it was the the horses under the hood .The V6. It was a very suttle shake, not a very hard one. But after having the car for almost 6mts now I think it is def. something else.
Also last week I started the car, did not press on the gas peddle, and the entire care was shaking like a earth quake, very hard shake. EARTH QUAKE LIKE. I let it shake for about 30 sec. then gave it a little gas, while in park, and it quickly went away.
It was like the something was out of balance. I have also felt a shaking affect while driving around 30miles per hr. .. I just thought it was a tire out of round or balance.. However now that i have experienced the Earth quake shake while in park I know it cant be the tires.
