#115 of 118 2005 Cadillac CTS -recalls
Sep 15, 2013 (9:29 am)
I recently purchased 2005 Cadi CTS. I know there were several recalls since 2005. My question is how do I find out if the previous owners responded to the recalls and if they did not, can I take to a dealership even though I am not the original owner? Thanks for the input.

You should be able to take it to a dealership and let them run the VIN to see if recalls have been performed. Since recalls must be done at a dealership, they should have records on your vehicle. If the fixes on those recalls haven't been done, the dealership can do them for you.
You could probably also get the same info by calling Cadillac customer service and providing your VIN.

Hello GM Customer Service. I bought my 2006 CTS seven years ago today. I've been experiencing the same brake problem mentioned in this forum since I bought the car. I've taken my CTS to the dealer countless times and tried to explain the problem. The mechanics have tried to see if they can recreate the problem but have been unsuccessful. I still drive the car but I fear that one day I will be involved in an accident because of this brake problem. I would like for GM to have this problem fixed and me not have to pay for the repair since it's something I feel is a safety issue and Manufacturer's responsibility. Please let me know how to proceed with this matter.
The other problem I discovered is that the motor oil seems to evaporate before the 3 to 5 months service period. I carry with a couple of quarts of motor oil in my CTS and periodically check my oil levels. I've own other GM and non GM cars before and never had to worry about my motor oil evaporating. These are two serious problems which I believe GM should take a strong look at and consider recalling these cars.
I hope to here from someone from GM soon.
#118 of 118 brake line corosion
Dec 07, 2013 (3:51 pm)
Yesterday, I set out to pick up medication and as I approached an intersection I noticed the traffic light changed and with a large vehicle in front of me. I started braking early(elderly and cautious), my vehicle would not stop I've never been so scared in my life! After pressing the brakes down has hard as I could it finally came to a stop. I was extremely shakened. Then afterwards the display said "low brake fluid". Well immediately I went to get brake fluid and added it. That did no good, so I went to Meineke and after they checked it out they told me the part where the brake line connects on the top rear axel had corosion and the brake fluid was pouring out. I have 2007 CTS, this just does not sound right to me. I could have serious hurt or killed and/or someone else.
