#9 of 17 2006 SRX TIMING CHAIN
May 18, 2012 (7:15 am)
I have a 2006 SRX and June of last year i had to replace the timing chain. now i am noticing the noise is starting to come back again. how often do these chains need to be replaced? i always thought cadillac's were a good car and used to buy foreign cars but switch to a gm car but i am having too many mechanical problems. i may go back to foreign again. this is my first time owning an american made car.

I'm sorry to see that you are having a potential concern with your timing chain again; if you purchased this part through one of our GM dealerships, there should be a 1 year warranty on the part. If it was installed there, there is also a 1 year warranty on the workmanship. Let us know if we can be of any assistance!

Don't be fooled by gm trying to help you. They could care less and just pass you to a foreign call center. They pretty much know they have no intention of helping you. It is soo frustrating talking to some one from a foreign county that works for an American company like gm. Why even bother buying an American made car when you deal with someone overseas. I might as well by a foreign car and get a quality vehicle. What a lemon this Cadillac srx has been.

These must be a issue for GM because all of the newer 3.6L engines have an extended warranty running out to 120K miles mainly dealing with this issue.
I have an 2005 with the 3.6L that has the noisy chains- no codes yet, just wondering if anyone has oil consumption issues with their V6? (more than 1 qt / 2000 miles)

High oil consumption and noisy engine are not very good signs. You better get it checked out before your engine self-destructs. Good luck.

2006 SRX, had warranty timing chain replacement at 45k miles. Since that time oil consumption checked regularly, averaging at least a full qt low per 1100k driven. At 67k dealer performed an oil consumption test which involved three trips to the dealer. Dealer claimed level was 1/4 qt low and for 1100 miles was normal. Now experiencing 'service stability system' and 'service brake assist' warnings with symbols lighting on dash. Warning don't come on till car is warmed up (Michigan winter) to the point the fan is blowing warm air. Once the car is warmed up and then restarted (run into a store) the warnings come on quickly. During the initial cold starts the ABS does not work prior to the warnings. We have not experienced steering issues from the stability system. Car will be in for service this week.

The timing chain just went on my 2006 SRX at 69,000 miles and 3 weeks ago two fuel injectors were replaced. I purchased an extended warranty from the dealer for 70,000 miles or 3 years when I purchased the car used from the GM dealership with 32,000 miles on it. At the beginning it was one computer module problem after another that went on for 6 months!
No warning, no noise, no problems indicating the timing chain had a problem. I am sick about this. I bought this vehicle because I have neck problems and the car ergonomics helped me tremendously. I was more comfortable in the car than at home! The extended warranty ended the end of November 2012 on the year basis. Is there any way to get warranty coverage? Does anyone know? None of this should be happening on GM vehicles.
