 Turn signals failed to work. this is an intermittent problem. the selected signal does not flash when the turn signal is activated as if the bulb is burnt out. went to the expense to replace bulb three times, but, the bulbs were good. after replacing bulb the signal still did not work. after, several weeks it would start working again. a month or so later this happen again and took to dealer and again the bulb was replaced this time the bulb was burnt out. the signal worked for 2 months and went out again. i will never purchase another gm car. my dealer calls it the mystifying car. this is a manufacturing defect that gm will not admit to. shame on gm, no wonder americans are going foreign. the cost to replace this bulb is $85.00 each time.

 Ran out of gas on the ohio turnpike. dic displayed 17 gallons used on 20 gallon tank with what appeared to be 3 gallons remaining, i didn't ask the aaa tow to bring gas. the car was towed to cleveland, where the dealer said that the car was on empty. this cost $60.03 plus nearly $200.00 with car rental back to michigan, then additional gas and time off work to return to work to pick up the car. didn't mind that the dealer made me feel like an idiot. i only wish that i would have been informed when i purchased the vehicle that the dic is not reliable. i could have had aaa bring gas free of charge and been on my way. obviously, this really upset me.*ak

 Recurring electrical problems. first problem i had, the motor in the window went out, then the next electrical problem i had was the wiring for the blinkers kept going out, the next and most major electrical problem i'm still having is that when the car is turned off and secured the dashboard lights and radio comes back on within ten seconds after i've turned off and secured the car. the middle armrest keeps detaching at the back where the cell phone plug is located. the door locks (indicating latch by window) doesn't lift up. these electrical problems have been corrected by the dealer (cadillac) at least two times each. *jb

 Dt: the vehicle will shut down starting with air conditioner. then a warning light will come on, system theft service. and the rest of the vehicle will follow. consumer could not even get the key out of the ignition or turn it when it does this. the consumer was able to get the vehicle to pull to the side of the highway because she knew that when the air condition starts failing , it will shut down. will have to wait at least 25-30 minutes before it will start again. the first time this happened the dealership replaced the computer. the second time they replaced computer again. the third time they changed the module. consumer was not entirely sure of all the work the dealership did. there were no other known problems with the vehicle at this time. everything that the dealership has done to try to repair the problem has not helped. consumer contacted the manufacturer, they told consumer that they would reimburse her for what she paid. the replacements were done under warranty. the consumer did not want the vehicle since she felt it was unsafe. *ak

 My 2004 cad. srx showed a left rear flat tire. i pulled the vehicle to a level, asphalted, scenic overlook area, 23 miles from page, az. i could not get the shifter from drive into park gear, nor would the key turn or release from the ignition. i got out to check and change tire, spare would not release, either. i called on-star, gave emergency details, to first advisor, then advance diagnostics. i got out of car, it surged, backwards, with the emergency brake, completely on, and it accelerated, taking me with it, i pushed away, and it kept accelerating over the scenic overlook, being destroyed. on-star never contacted the police, ambulance, or me, even 1 week after the accident, i had to call them and request the audio or transcript of the malfunctions, and crash. *nm
