In most cases, the Cadillac CTS is a reliable vehicle, but over the years there has been a pattern of problems that owners have been dealing with. Below are some common problems affecting GMs’ Cadillac CTS vehicles:
Cadillac CTS Dash Cluster Problems
In February 2022, a class-action lawsuit was filed against General Motors over issues with its Cadillac User Experience (CUE) system. This lawsuit was originally filed against GM in the U.S. District for Southern California back in 2019 by owners of Cadillac vehicles equipped with its CUE infotainment system. Plaintiffs alleged cars equipped with Cadillac CUE have touchscreens that are prone to delaminating and cracking, making them impossible to use.
Other Cadillac CTS Dash Cluster Problems Include:
- Dash Cluster Is Completely Dead
- Dashboard / Speedometer Lights Continually Blinking
- Gauges Become “Stuck”
- “Starting Disabled Remove Key” Warnings
Cadillac CTS Rear Differential Problems
Over the years, the Cadillac CTS model has received many complaints about differential problems. They have recently been recalled for roll pins in the rear-axle differential that could fatigue and crack. If these pins break while the vehicle is driven, it could cause the rear to lock up, creating a dangerous driving situation. Other differential problems include a rear axle pinion seal that could experience a fluid leak. If the fluid leaks low enough, a lack of lubrication could lead to increased differential noise and eventual failure.
Symptoms Of A Bad Rear CTS Differential
- Vibrations that increase in intensity as you speed up.
- Grinding Gears
- Whining Noises
- Metal Shavings In Differential Fluid
Cadillac CTS Check Engine Light Flashes
When your Cadillac CTS “Check Engine Light” goes on, you don’t immediately stop your vehicle and turn off the engine, unless you are experiencing engine performance issues such as poor acceleration or rough idling. The engine light warning could be a minor issue or it could mean something more serious. For most Cadillac CTS owners, it means a trip to the car dealership to investigate the issue and get the light turned off.
Common Cadillac CTS Check Engine Light Problems include:
- Faulty Steering Wheel Position Sensor
- Loose Or Damaged Gas Cap
- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor
- Oxygen Sensor Failure
- Catalytic Converter Failure
- EVAP (Evaporated Emission Control System) Leak
- EGR Exhaust Gas Re-circulation Valve Failure
- Dirty Spark Plugs Or Damaged Spark Plug Wires
- Vacuum Leak
