2017 Cadillac XT5 SUV Luxury 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 8A)


Review

Buyer beware. First off, don't get your Cadillac from Arnie Buaer. Initially, the service was great and then I stepped in the car to drive away with the salesperson and it was not what I initially sat it. It had no heated seats and it had miles on it and I initially sat in a new car ( I had heated seats in my Terrain that I traded in). So anyway, get the car home and weeks later, I'm hearing a weird noice and it's the brakes. I shouldn't hear anything on a brand new car let alone a Cadillac that I'm paying and arm and a leg to have. I've had the car in the shop several time regarding the brakes. In car with my daughter, the car wouldn't let me drive it, it was so bad. Turn's out it was a chip that was related to the brakes after me bringing the car in multiple times, the finally get that squared away. So the last brake incident in July , my oil and tire rotation was supposed to be done, so I would not have to see these 🤡 for. Long time as I feel like I'm there all of the time (for a 2018 Cadillac). I get an email that I need an oil change and then my car indicate that on the display. I call the dealership and said I thought you changed my oil and the lady said that the computer said yeah it says right here that you're not due til March. I said well, my sucker says December of this year. So she says come in so we can take the light out. How bout actually doing the oil change. I'm so disgusted as I bought a Terrain t this same dealership. I can't even enjoy the car, as I've had so many issues. Never again!!! I could've spent the money on a BMW and dealt with less nonsense.

Review

What a disappointment. 2nd Cadillac. CTS was great until the cue system failed. Gave GM another chance figured maybe in three yrs they would have improved their product. My XT5 drivers seat replaced at 3k. Leather became brittle? Go figure. Bad cow I guess. Front door molding buckled at corners both sides replaced as well. Paint actually started coming off all four wheels. In shop now as all wheels have to be repainted. Horrible ride. My F150 rides better. And who actually thought the auto stop was a good idea? You really should have driven this thing for a month before you marketed it to the rest of us. In a loaner again. So mad at myself for thinking GM could produce a quality product. Now facing rediculous depreciation and couldn’t trade if I wanted to unless I’m ok eating 20k. By the Lexus.

Review

DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!! I bought brand new.... the Auto Stop has been in for service 3 times, the motor mount has broken twice.... so in a year and half 5.... yes you heard me 5 service trips!!!! I would have never expected this from a Cadillac!!!!!!! I am now after a1 1/2 years looking to trade this car in!!! the charger is a pain, the wireless part has never worked with my Iphone. I drive a lot and after 6 months the beige soft leather interior had to be cleaned twice because even clean business attire got the seats dirty... I had to get a seat cover so as not to ruin the seats with just daily wear and tear.

Review

I love my Cadillac, and if I would have to pick something I would change, it would be the storage in the back. I would like more room for luggage and other items.

Review

I Purchased my 2017 XT5 in October 2016. Currently has 11,800 miles. For the second time I have noticed that my transmission indicator light has come on. Dealer checked it out indicating there were no problems. Upon pulling in my garage today, the transmission light has come on again. I’m starting to notice that the transmission feels like it’s slipping. Calling again to have it checked/fixed. Stop/idle function function is no longer working. And I to have a rattling noise in the backseat that I cannot locate. Sadly I have paid my SUV off already. Under warranty so I anticipate immediate resolution. Check thoroughly before making your purchase, although it is very classy I did not expect to be even considering these types of issues so soon after a purchase.
