stay away from the cts, they are nothing but problems, my transmission cooling lines failed and coolant mixed with transmission fluid, tranny is now acting like junk,there is no way to tell ahead of time if the lines are going to fail, raditor had to be replaced, last week tranny had to be serviced toytal cost 1000.000 and now tranny is acting up.then this morning engine check light came on.this car was babied, oil was changed faithfully every month on the 1st, regardless of the miles, now have to sell it because i cant trust it, oh and last month all 4 wheel bearing hubs were replaced because of howling noise, 1200.00. STAY AWAY,CADILLAC WILL NOT HELP YOU, EVEN THOUGH THE TRANNY COOLER LINES ARE A DESIGN FLAW.

Dear #533. Go back to #514 (2012 CTS engine problems) and this should answer your question. You made the correct decision by avoiding Cadillac products and the poor quality they offer. I think people are catching on G.M.'s lack of commitment to their customers. B.M.W 5-Series is an excellent choice.

Was your CTS a 2012? What do you think you will buy to replace it? Thanks for your feedback.

I just traded in my 2008 CTS for a 2012 CTS-V Coupe.
I never had a single problem in the 36,000 miles I drove it I only traded it in because I prefer a coupe and a car with a warranty (well maybe a little for the increase in performance)
When I trade this car in I will buy another Cadillac.

#543 of 671 Burning 4 quarts every 5,000 miles!! HELP!!
Aug 06, 2012 (1:20 pm)
I have a 2005 CTS 3.6 thats burning/using about a quart of engine oil every 1250 miles. I have less than 70k miles on it.
I have owned about 35 GM vehicles starting with a 1970 Corvette. I have never had any of them with these kind and magnitude of problems.
Am having Security/Theft system and Traction Control issues too. I love the car but I cant believe GM screwed this one up swo bad. I have a 2000 GMC with 197k on it and it still doesnt use a drop!
I can't sell this car...who's gonna buy it when I tell them it burns oil and sometimes it locks itself down in your driveway a couple weeks at a time! Yikes!! I NEED HELP!!
