Cadillac CTS Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
According to Cadillac CTS vehicle owners, the Cadillac CTS will meet some problems while driving and among them, the most common two are as follows:
The first one is the engine failure. Some drivers stated that the engine in the Cadillac CTS failed too early. If when you are driving, your engine also fails such as misfires or starts difficultly, and you can hear a whining noise, then you should check if your fuel pump goes wrong.
Second is related with the brake. Some said that when they press brake pedals, they can hear strange noise and found the brake pedals pulsating and vibrating, and it should take a while for brakes responding and score marks can be seen on the brake rotors. This problem must have something with brake system. Either brake disc or brake pad is failing and needs to be replaced as early as possible because it is closely related with the safety of the driver and passengers.
Another easy-to-ignore problem is the parts that will wear out as time passes by. Headlight used too much will be dim and affect the vision area of driver, so does windshield wiper or wiper blade. A wheel cover used to reduce the accumulation of dirt and moisture to keep wheels function well will wear too. These replacement parts need attention and care for your safety.
