Very Disappointed - Engine Problems
By autoracer on


2004 Cadillac CTS-V 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Took delivery on 5/24. Have 200 miles
on car and it has been at the
dealership for 7 of the last 8 days.
There is a problem with the Engine
making a very loud "Resonance"/"Wind
up like a Turbo Charger" at 2500-2700
RPM and then it goes away at 2000 RPM
after feathering of the throttle.
Also, there is a very
loud "Rattle"/"Pingging" Sound at
acceleration thru 4200-4700 RPM in
2nd,3rd,4th. A $52K Cadillac with a
proven LS6 Engine should not have
these issues within 200 miles. Dealer
doesn't know what to do and Cadillac
Tech Support can't help them.

Worst Features

Dealerships should get better trained to fix issues before selling a car like this or the Corvette Dealers should be the servicing dealerships with Corvette Trained Engineers.
