2008 Cadillac CTS Long Term Road Test

2008 Cadillac CTS V6 DI: Noisy

August 18, 2008


It's been about three months since I've been in our Long Term 2008 Cadillac CTS and I think that it's spent that entire time being driven over cobblestones. Even with the radio on, the slightest road imperfection causes the CTS to erupt with noise.

Here's a list of things that squeak or rattle in our CTS.

Driver seat (this is particularly bad when turning, braking or accelerating. Or entering / exiting the vehicle)

Passenger seat

instrument cluster (chrome surrounds buzz and rattle)

rear seats


center console

Shift lever

Nav screen (intermittent when rising)

The driver seat-back also feels as if it's sagging down slightly to the right.
