problem #1

Nov 012001


  • miles
Car was purchased (leased) on 2/22/00. Car kept stalling while driving or wouldn't start at all. Had it towed to dealer on 2/29/00. They couldn't duplicate the problem on 6/8/00. They replaced the fuel pump and I had car towed to dealer. Dash board panel would read battery, no charge when it would rain had belt replaced. Had several stiff spots when turning steering wheel on 11/1/01. Rack and pinion and water pump had to be replaced with only 45654 miles. On 1/30/01 dealer performed "protect injector service" at 49481 miles. 2/20/02 returned car to dealer, gas pedal was sticking. They cleaned deposit is from throttle blades at 49533 miles. Car began stalling again. 10/29/01 egr valve replaced with 60324 miles. 12/12/01 spark plugs had to be replaced due to poor performance with 60324 miles. We have replaced the tires, front and back brakes. The air conditioning went out may, 2002. Had it repaired on 7/9/02 replaced R&R compressor assembly, expansion tube assembly, A/C recharge, freon, dye kit, A/C oil and orifice tube with an odometer reading of 69860!! ridiculous isn't it?? not done yet 7/11/02 - A/C is out again. This time had to replace the A/C sensor, A/C switch, acm module, R&R switch compressor cut-off, R&R sensor sunload (atc), R&R module climate control. Today, it still doesn't work. I'm tired of pumping $$ into something that is a lease. We contacted Cadillac on helping us get out of this lease and into a different GM lease, they wouldn't help. This car has been nothing but trouble since day 3. when parking the car and trying to remove keys is another problem. We have to hit the top of the shifter to get the keys to release. The shifter sticks and won't release the keys. Currently, the problem we have is the banging under the car, which we found are the struts. They don't even make after market ones yet! let us know if any of these things are "recalled". caddy crap!! thank you.
