Fuel pump failed first day I had the vehicle.
Fuel pump blew again - 2 months later.
Rear washer fluid pump went bad at 100k.
Rear door lock and latch failed 105k.
Fuel rail needed to be replaced at 90k.
Continually have to replace bulbs (dealer wanted $150 to replace one bulb!) I did myself - unreal how difficult and labor intensive it is to access.
Transmission started to slip at 120k.
Bought a 2004 SRX - really wanted to get the V8 (Northstar) as I had already had a Seville, and loved the power of the engine. Loved the look of the vehicle when they dropped off at my home (I had it shipped from out of state) - but the problems started the day after it arrived.
Fuel pump failed on our way to town to celebrate our new vehicle purchase. Couldn't believe it. $800-$900 the day after I bought.
Two months later - guess what? Fuel pump failed. Back to Cadillac for another pump - and an additional $800-$900.
The motor is amazing as far as power and smoothness, but I thought that being a Cadillac, I was getting a quality vehicle.
Started to run rough - so back to the dealership. Can't remember what the adviser told me - but it had something to do with the left side of engine - coil or fuel rail? Another hefty bill.
Stability control system continually engages, because one of the arms is loose.
I realize that all mechanical things break, or wear out... but by buying what I thought was a quality American made product... well you know.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
