The transmission or gearbox ensures that the correct amount of power reaches your wheels to drive at a given speed. The transmission ensures that the gear ratio between the engine and drive wheels adjusts to accommodate the desired speed of the car.
Common symptoms of transmission failures include:
- Whining and clunking
- Gears grinding
- Burning smell
- Lack of response, hesitation,
- Lunging, or jerking
- Noisy in neutral
- Leaking fluid
- Premature clutch replacements
Oil is responsible for lubricating parts of the engine, helping to absorb heat and reduce overheating due to friction. Most oil leakage is the result of degraded engine gaskets, oil pan leaks, oil seals, or bad connections.
Common symptoms of oil leakage, which can indicate a more serious problem, include:
- Dark puddles under your car
- Smoke from the engine
- Engine overheating
- The smell of burning oil
The car’s electrical system is composed of the battery, starter, and alternator and is responsible for things like starting the car, powering the dashboard, and other electricity dependent systems such as power locks, power windows, sound systems, and lighting, among others. An electrical failure can be caused by a loose electrical connection, a blown fuse, battery failure, or defective components.
Common symptoms of electrical failure include:
- Battery problems
- Engine won’t crank
- Headlights aren’t working properly
- Burning plastic smell
- Fuses keep blowing out
Engine Cooling System Failure
A car’s engine cooling system is responsible for keeping the engine cool while it works to prevent overheating. The system does so by sending a liquid coolant through hoses and passages in the engine. As the coolant flows through these hoses and passages, it picks up and removes heat from the engine. The water pump has the job of keeping the coolant moving through the system, and the radiator re-cools the liquid so it can again be circulated through the passages in the motor.
Common symptoms of engine cooling system failure include:
- Overheating, especially on city roads or “stop-and-go” traffic
- Metallic smell coming from the engine compartment
- Coolant leaks
- Steam or smoke emanating from the engine compartment

Notable Cadillac Recalls
Vacuum Pump May Decrease Power Brake Assist Capabilities (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No.19V645000)
- In September 2019, GM recalled 3.5 million vehicles, including many Cadillacs, with defective vacuum pumps.
- According to GM, the amount of vacuum created by the pump may decrease over time. As the vacuum levels drop, the brake assist capabilities also decrease, increasing the braking effort and extending the distance required to stop the vehicle, which may lead to a crash.
Axle Roll Pins May Fracture (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 20V038000)
- In January 2020, nearly 3,000 Cadillacs were recalled for defective roll pins in the rear-axle differential.
- According to Cadillac, certain roll pins in the rear-axle differential may fatigue. If the pins become too weak, they may fracture and cause the differential to lock up. If this occurs while driving, the rear wheels may too lock up and affect the driver’s ability to control the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Damages Seat Heaters Can Cause Fire (NHTSA Safety Recall Campaign No. 18V595000)
- In September 2018 Cadillac recalled nearly 53,000 vehicles equipped with defective front seat heaters.
- According to Cadillac, the flexible seat heating mats inside the seats can become damaged over time. In cold ambient temperatures, the seat heaters in these vehicles can turn on automatically when the vehicle is remotely started. If a damaged seat heater is turned on while no one is inside the vehicle, it may overheat and increase the risk of fire.
At Wirtz Law APC, we are dedicated to protecting consumers from large automakers like Cadillac.
Cadillac is a division of American Automaker General Motors (GM). Cadillac designs and builds luxury cars and SUVs distributed in 34 countries worldwide. Cadillacs are manufactured in plants all across the U.S. and in its Chinese plant located in Shanghai, China. Cadillac vehicles have historically done poorly in terms of sales. In 2019, Cadillac only sold 390,458 vehicles worldwide–a record for the brand.
In 2009, Cadillac’s parent company GM leveraged its American employees against the federal government, forcing American taxpayers to foot a 50 billion ($50,000,000,000.00) dollar bill to bailout GM.
Over the years, Cadillac vehicles have also become increasingly unreliable. Cadillac ranked 27th out 31 brands in the J.D. Power 2018 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study. It topped only Jeep, Fiat, Land Rover, and Chrysler. The study measures the number of problems per 100 vehicles original owners experienced during the past 12 months of 2015 model year cars. The 2018 Annual Consumer Reports ranked Cadillac second to last only topping Volvo in terms of reliability.
Cadillac’s poor sales and reliability ranking continue today.
I think I have a lemon. What do I do now?
Under California’s Lemon Law, if you’ve given an automaker a “reasonable number of attempts” to repair your vehicle but the problems persist, your car might qualify for repurchase or replacement. Big automakers like Cadillac often try to muddy the water and re-define the analysis of Lemon Law qualification to their benefit – which is why consumers should never fight the big automakers alone! Generally speaking, as few as two (2) repair opportunities can be enough for your car to qualify. Don’t rely on Cadillac’s evaluation of your repair history, contact the professionals at Wirtz Law today.
