My last Cadillac was a 2007 DTS luxury with the magnetic suspension . My new 2017 CT6 has the magnetic ride as well but with very little rubber between the road and the pretty 20" wheels you feel the bumps like never before. I kept the 2007 for a few weeks and can't believe how much difference in the smoothness of the ride the 2007 has over the new 2017 and have to believe these low profile tires with large wheels must make up the difference. As for warranty, I am pretty upset that you do not cover these wheels since they come with the upgrade package. I have a strong feeling the first large chuckhole I encounter will damage the tire and wheel. NOT GOOD BUISNESS for such a great expensive vehicle. By the way, this is my 5th Caddy. I love everything else about it, but I always bought for the smooth ride and this may lose my confidence.
I am having an issue involves the transmission on this vehicle. On occasion the transmission shifts/lurches so hard that it feels like the vehicle was struck from the rear. I did take the vehicle in for service and dealership stated that they upgraded the computer and the problem should not re-occur. Wrong! The same issue has occurred several more times and one time my grandkids were in the vehicle and it actually scared them when the vehicle lurched. Reading other reviews involving the Cadillac CT6 shows that I am not alone with this issue. I know that there is no perfect vehicle available on this planet but, what I fear is that the lurching may occur and cause an accident or transmission will not last long and will need to be replaced (hopefully, while under warranty). This transmission issue is still an issue, as I have taken the vehicle back to the dealership and the dealership cannot "duplicate" the hard shift. Interesting fact is that every single person that has been in my vehicle has felt this problem and I have had it occur before and after taking the vehicle for service.
I wanted a large sedan that was very quick and athletic (and didn't need a lot of down-time being repaired). I also wanted a vehicle that had all of the latest safety and convenience features and was reasonably priced. From the magazine and owner reviews that I read, this was the car. After only one month of ownership, I can not address the question of reliability, but I can attest to my satisfaction with regard to the other aspects in which I was interested.
My 2017 Cadillac CT-6 is bad beyond belief. It has been in the shop for approx 4 of the 20 weeks that I have owned it. I would not wish this car on my worst enemy. Here is a list of all the problems. Brake pedal assembly needed to be replaced, seat belt tightening motor needed to be replaced, and panel under steering wheel fell off. Those are the problems that have been resolved. What has not been resolved is the headliner makes a loud rattling noise. It comes from the area between the sun roofs. I have taken it to two dealerships and they have attempted to fix it with ?clamps?. That actually made it worse. Last but not least. The car makes a very loud whining noise. It sounds like a cat being tortured( not that I have heard a cat being tortured). It?s really loud. I understand that I may have just gotten a lemon but so far GM has not done anything to make this right. It?s a great looking car but so far miserable to drive.
The 8 speed transmission on the CT6 is just plain awful. The first to second shift feels at times as if you have been hit from behind by another car. Other times it takes seconds for the car to shift from first to second and during that time the car has no power applied to the wheels. GM and the dealerships appear to do nothing about this after several complaints and tell me its normal (no...it's not normal for a $70+ car to shift like a 30 year old truck).
