You do know it's the consumer's responsibility to get recall work done before the part actually goes bad, right? Can't really blame cadillac for your stupidity on that one.

Sounds like some of you just got lucky! I agree with the first person! When the car isn't showing a warning light of some kind, and I have to take it to my mechanic, (who has custody of the thing more than I do), it is a good running car. But... I can't remember too many times when I haven't had a light or something on it. The sun roof opens and closes at will, (two different mechanics can't find a problem), the radio quit working, (that was a sensor), motor quit working while I was driving, (another sensor), gaskets leaked, radiator had to be replaced, transmission wouldn't unlock from park, now I need a whole new computer for it! At the cost of $1,397.26! just for the part!I've put two sets of brakes on it, it overheats when the ac is on if driving in town or up a hill, it leaks going through car washes, and I'm sure there have been more, but I can't remember all the problems. That's more than any of the other cars I've had total. And most of them had 100,000 miles on them when I bought them! This is more than a maintenance issue. Maintenance is changing the oil and stuff like that. I had a repair man here one day fixing my oven and he asked about my car. He too, has one and he has problems with is temp. control. Another person I know has issues with her transmission! I don't know one person who has the same car that hasn't had issues! Never again will I buy a cadillac. You can't depend on the car or the dealer!

I paid 6k US dollars for mine about 4 years ago, damn I wish I could turn back time. I wish someone would have told me it was made in Germany, which makes it very expensive to repair.
The interior is beautiful, nice leather and Bose sound system. Unfortunately it has a blown head gasket and is just sitting in my driveway. It only has 80k miles on it, so I figured I could get some decent money for it; I was very wrong. I'll probably have to junk it. I can't afford the almost 3k dollars it costs to fix it. I should have just bought a Chevy Malibu or Impala. Unless you buy it new and with a warranty, German engineered is not a good idea.
