Cadillac brand automobiles are the envy and goal of many car owners. Cadillac luxury vehicles are a division of the builder/designer/manufacturer, General Motors. China, Canada, and the United States are GM’s major markets. In 34 additional markets worldwide, however, Cadillac vehicles are distributed. Within the United States, Cadillac is considered the top of the luxury line. Global sales numbered 356,467, while U.S. sales numbered 156,440 in 2017. For those wondering where the name “Cadillac” came from, and its logo, the crest for Cadillac’s logo is based on the coat of arms of Detroit, Michigan founder Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac.
Cadillac had already established itself as one of the premier luxury carmakers in America by the time of
the 1909 purchase by General Motors. Technological advances attributed to Cadillac include the steel
roof, clutchless manual transmission, full electrical system, and more.

The Ugly Side: Common Cadillac Car Problems Encountered
Even though Cadillacs are the car so many dream of, they have experienced their fair share of issues through the decades. Let’s take a look at a few of the problems Cadillac has dealt with:
2008 Cadillac STS-V and STS owners found their cars involved in a recall that included 4,586 vehicles. Apparently, the tire pressure monitoring system wasn’t up to standards. What resulted were malfunction indicators that did not work and premature tire failure. Clearly, a crash could be the
consequence due to vehicle loss of control.
Numerous 2009 model Cadillacs were recalled by GM numbering over 27,000. Fuel system control modules were having issues in the following vehicles: Escalade EXT, Escalade ESV, Escalade Hybrid, and Cadillac Escalade. These problems increased the risk of a crash due to the engine either stalling or, before the car even entered the road, failing to start.
Owners of 2007 to 2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT’s, Escalade ESV’s, Escalades, and 2006 to 2008 Cadillac DTSs were victims of a recall that, in all, involved in excess of 857,700 vehicles (Buick, GMC, Chevrolet, Hummer, Buick, and more were involved as well). This time, the control-circuit ground wire could end
up being overheated due to a malfunctioning washer fluid heater/heated wiper washer fluid system. The risk here was fire, a bad odor, or accumulating smoke.
