Lightbulb Joke of a community

Hello everyone.!!! I have been asking questions about one of our Caddilacs here on various Tech pages and gotten ZERO replies. HAhahehahaLOL now that's a JOKE. As I look at other posts I see that all the MAJORITY of members do here is Lookie Loo and move on too. We all have knowledge to share and information is the key to success. CawMon Peoples "Communicate?"


I normally drive Vans and use them for tool and motorcycle hauling. Now I find myself sharing a 2017 CTS ownership with my wife. She has had one in the past and was tired of the SUV fad. I like this car (2.0 LTG). The ride is a lot rougher than the old Eldorados or Fleetwoods I had ridden in over the years, but what a refined vehicle this really is. SIlky smooth throttle response and seamless gear changes. Power and acceleration very surprising as well Quick!

I still drive my Van but "Date nights" definitely find me behind the wheel of our CTS. Before posting an introduction here I attempted to just seek the knowledge available in your Tech section. Apparently an introduction here is protocol.
Has anyone else experienced these issues with their cars:



1) When Car is warmed up after 10 minutes or so and most apparent in the rain. I am experiencing a heavy missfire under load in high gear when torquing up from 1500 rpm. However as soon as throttle is opened up enough to invoke down shift and revs build with turbo boost it disappears. Very consistent and repeatable. I am using mid grade 89 octane fuel.

2) Car pulls side to side terribly when there is only 1/2 inch of water standing on the road. Tried with the car in snow and Ice mode and it seemed to track a little better. Car misfires worst in the rain. Is this due to the lane keep assist feature unable to see the lane markings?

3) Failure of the graphics interface to respond to finger swipes and selections.

I have made appointments with the dealer to resolve these issues and have taken the car back for it's requiset service and oil changes.

Your comments and experiences would be welcome knowledge and correspondence.

Sincerely Herode

PLEASE do not take offense, and I am not looking to start an argument, but the opening paragraph of your post is not one that would engender warm fuzzy feelings amongst those who could help you.

I know it is frustrating to post and get no replies, but one needs to realize that this a totally volunteer site, that the members, I would imagine, have either jobs or lives or both that demand quite a bit of their attention, and sometimes car questions take a distant second to other priorities in their lives.

I too have posted and gotten no replies, but that disappointment is FAR outweighed by the benefits I have reaped when other members do reply. There has been some great info provided me about problems with my Allantes, and any ONE of those replies was well worth the time it took to post ALL of my inquiries.

Since the newest Caddie that I own is a 2006 STS I cannot be much help to you on your CTS, other than to say "Really nice ride Dude". Should you need help with the old 78 Eldorados, especially in regards to under-dash wiring, give me shout.

Have a good week and I hope that you get the info you seek.

Thanks Art. Yes I do deserve a flogging for such a rude and direct attack on all members. But lucky for me a wise and well adjusted individual decided to chime in first. I do expect some flack here. I do apologize for my impatient rant. Yes we are all very busy and I sincerely appreciate any information we can share.

Thanks for the compliment on my wife's car. The ride is too firm for what I remember used to be a Cadillac,... so smooth and like riding in a "boat". I miss that. If anyone cares to engage in correspondence on this site regarding my "missfire" I will be glad to divulge all the information and advice I have already learned from working with my dealer's mechanics.

SIncerely
