2006 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 6M)


I loved my CTS when I got it in 2006 because it was so beautiful.
It never had a lot of power and the "traction control" would come on each time I pulled out from a stop.
I could live with that.

I started having issues around the 2nd year...
most of which was covered.
Now I am at year 7 and I have had nothing but issues for 2 years.
I have had to put several thousand dollars in for repairs.
Rear differential broke TWICE, Air bag issue, Wipers don't work, catalytic converter, misfires all the time, purge valve, spark plugs, and the list goes on.
I still owe 4K because it was a lease at first.

Shouldn't a Caddy last at least a decade or 120000 miles?
Very sad and disappointing.

If your rear differential broke twice and you had to pay for it: http://www.automd.com/recall/campaign_c74770/ Had to pay for repairs for any of these?: http://www.intellichoice.com/1-12-2006-17378-20/2006-cadillac-cts-2-8l-4dr-sedan-recalls.html
