2000 Cadillac DTS from North America
This car has its faults, but is worth it
At 128,000 miles, I noticed a service engine light. The TCC circuit malfunctioned, causing replacement of the TCC solenoid, a $40 part that totaled $965 to replace.
At 170,000, I am getting the same codes. PCM po741c solenoid stuck off & PCM 1860c solenoid circuit electrical. The torque converter is locking in and out, but each time I clear the codes, in a few days to a week it returns again. Dealer claims the wiring may be loose, but still must go into the transmission as if replacing TCC solenoid, costing now 10 hours labor at $120 an hour.
Steering wheel doesn't work correctly. It goes down on exit instead of up.
Noise in dash that lasts for a minute when turning on the ignition.
Left and now right front wheel bearing hubs have been replaced.
Vibration between 65 & 75; took a set of Michelin MXV4s with 4 wheel alignment and inflating the front tires to 38lbs to cure the problem.
My CD player rejects CDs after 30 seconds.
This Caddy has a powerful 300 horse engine that will get it on.
The car has a very soft smooth ride, and is very comfortable on long trips.
Love the interior, and all the options such as heated seats, lumbar massages, night vision to play with, shifter in the floor console.
Love the stylish 17 inch chrome wheels, the white diamond paint, the sunroof, and too many options to name.
Will repair the transmission myself to save the $1200 labor plus parts, and continue to enjoy driving this great machine.
