Most Cadillac car recalls will be covered by the USA General Motors brand with support gained through a vehicle identification number (VIN) online tool. This is the very same tool used when you wish to look up models recalled for Saab, GMC, Buick, and other brands under the GM company.


In recent years, we have seen the Cadillac XTS within a recall for braking problems, ignition key rotation issues, stability control problems, and more. There’s been a few other models recalled for various issues, although it is worth pointing out that 2014 was a bad year within the auto industry for car recalls across the globe and especially within the United States.

There’s different outcomes when a recall takes place and you might have to return the vehicle to your local Cadillac car dealership, although you should use the contact details on this page to find out the exact process for any pending recall.

Some Cadillac car recalls will never take place even when your vehicle has a major problem, as such you might want to report those issues within the comments below. You can join others and watch for patterns that could lead to a recall in the future with a problem you already have today.

  • Brett

    Yep, seems like my 2015 Cadillac SRX is being recalled, due to a seat belt issue, only recently been contacted about it. Better late than never I guess.

  • Derek

    I’ve had a problem with my 2001 Cadillac Deville not starting all the time. I have made certain all the wires are clean and fine and also replaced the PCM, but still nothing. I have heard that other owners have the same issue, and are still not sure how to fix this.

  • John

    Well it finally happened to me, the Plastic cover on the license plate on my 2003 Cadillac CTS has fallen off.

  • Steve

    The fuel and temperature gage on my 2001 Cadillac DeVille is erratic.

  • Roger

    A couple of warning lights came up on my 2010 Chevy Equinox when going in reverse, the forward. Now got to take it to the garage, although I have heard it could be the thermostat stuck open.

  • David

    When I reach 60 mph in my 20068 Cadillac CTS the engine stutters a little, it’s only when I try to speed up twice that the problem goes.

  • Joe

    Why would my 2007 CTS 3.6 consume around 1 Qt of oil very 400 miles? By the way, the engine has 155,000 on the clock.

  • Jerry

    Ever since hearing a huge bang after driving through a rough street, my XTS Premium 2013 model no longer sits right. There is also a strange winning noise coming from the rear of the car now.

  • Selma

    I’ve had my 2012 Cadillac SRX for around a year now and for some reason the built-in GPS in inaccurate, why would this be?

  • Doug

    Why is it that the leather interior of my 2013 Cadillac CTS interior terms so easily. it is bad when tears keep hoaxing in a car that cost me close to $50,000.

  • Alan

    OK, so I know my 2001 Cadillac Eldorado is getting on a bit, but I would still like to know why there is excessive oil use? I have been told by a few people that I am looking at an expensive engine rebuild – please say it isn’t so.

  • Joe

    My tires on my 2009 Cadillac Escalade seem to be losing air, and i’m pretty certain it is poor rims. Jus wondering if they can be repaired, or if I should just by replacments?

  • Lee

    Does anyone know if it is easy to replace the fuel induction system in a 2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT, as it is faulty and no longer works correctly?

  • Rob

    The traction control light on my 2003 Cadillac XLR keeps coming on, and the rear brake keeps going on when it is not meant to. Do you think a faulty wheel bearing could cause such a thing to happen?

  • Karl

    A word of warning, if you ever want to replace the AC unit in your aging 1985 Cadillac Fleetwood, then would advise against using the Harrison unity, as it is a piece of junk. They are terrible for the environment, and so if you are also looking to buy one of these vehicles and has that AC unit in, then just walk away.

  • Paul

    The thermostat on 2006 Cadillac XLR is stuck open, which is just not expected on a car only 9 years old. The car sot me a lot of money when new, and so Cadillac should be ashamed at this poor quailty.

  • Val

    The electric driver’s seat no longer woks on my 2008 Cadillac DTS, and also the heated seat has stopped working as well. I took it to the dealer who wants almost $150 just to tell us what is wrong with the thing, and so could end up costing a whole lot more. I just wondered if this is a problem that anyone else has come across and could be an easy fix?

  • Denver

    I am getting so annoyed with the AC on my 2011 Cadillac SRX, as it still refuses to work correctly. It will start ok, but when the car has been running for a while, the AC stops working, until the car has had time to rest and will work once again. Surely this is something that Cadillac should fix free of charge?

  • Desmond

    My 2012 Cadillac SRX has a serious flaw in its design, as I believe that all electric doors that shut automatically should have sensors that stop if something gets in their way. The tailgate came down on me once and gave me a nasty cut on my head. It’s no so bad happening to me, but what if it was a child being hit on the head, I fear the damage would be much worse.

  • Jackson

    Please help, the engine on my 1993 Cadillac Eldorado is running very rough, and are unable to find the case. I have made certain that the fuel filter was changed, the fuel pump is working fine, and the spark plugs and leads have been checked over and they are fine. I really am limited on my knowledge of cars, and so ask for your help if you have any that is?

  • Henry

    I am able to start my 1991 Cadillac Fleetwood just fine, and all seems fine, but then she will cut out and stall for no reason whatsoever. I am old and so don’t understand these things, and I fear if I took it to a garage they would take advantage of me, so getting a bit of advice on here would be able to help me. Thanks.

  • Jane

    I have now had a faulty sensor in my 2013 Cadillac SRX replaced three times for the accelerator pedal, and it has now gone for a fourth time. I just wonder how long it will take for the dealer to realize that there is something else causing this ongoing issue?

  • Nathen

    I’ve not really had much trouble wth my 1998 Cadillac Catera, although this is not the case now. There is now oil leaking from the harmonic balancer. I know the vehicle is getting on a bit, but you still don’t expect a vehicle with less that 90,000 to have oil leaking from around the transmission oil pan & rear differential as well.

  • Sonny

    I had the engine in my 2013 Cadillac replaced about a year ago because it was running rough, and so the dealer found this to be the only solution. Yet here we are 12 months later and the engine running rough again. I have since heard that the pistons are having to be replaced as part of a recall. I know this is a bit late, but this one must have slipped the net, so just in case you are having the same issue, we wanted to give you the heads up.

  • Nigel

    My Cadillac Deville keeps overheating, and I am sure it is caused by either a cracked head, although the block and head gasket could also be at fault. What is the best way to test this?

  • Ray

    My 1998 Cadillac SeVille idles at 4,000, which is not only annoying, but uses too much gas. I have since found an error code o102, although have no idea what this could be – please help.

  • Danny

    The headliner on my 1985 Cadillac Fleetwood keeps falling down. Now I have heard that most owners staple theirs up. I was just wondering if there was a better way to do the, or maybe getting a new one fitted?

  • Jamie

    You pay all that money for a Chrysler 300M and then 13 years down the line the dashboard starts to crack. The strange thing is, there is not a great deal of hot weather where I am, and it does not get too cold, and so I do not expect this to happen.

  • Max

    My Cadillac SRX used to run like a dream, now she sounds so rough while at idle. This does not happen at all times, and so when I have taken it to a dealer they have been unable to recreate the issue, and so cannot fix it.

  • Travis

    Whenever i step on the gas of my Cadillac Eldorado it begins to backfire, and the car is unable to get over 40 miles per hour.

  • Dougie

    I have now gone through 3 engines on my 1999 Cadillac SeVille, all of which was due to their head gaskets going. All the jobs were done right at the time, yet just cannot understand why the same issue occurs. I do love my car, even though it is old, but just think it is finally time to get rid of it.

  • Justin

    My 2001 Cadillac Catera dies once it has heated up. It drives nice up until then, which does seem a bot strange. I have put a taster on the car and three coeds keep appearing, and those are 303, and either 600 or 650 – but what do they mean?

  • Tony

    Has anyone else noticed their 2006 Cadillac CTS driving sluggish and requires more oil changes than it used to. Along with the timing chain jumping5 teeth on primary gear at crankshaft and its pressure being low in one of the cylinders? If so, I have been told that this is a common issue, and so have to wonder just why Cadillac has not issued a recall for this problem.

  • Ellen

    The navigation system in my 2012 Cadillac SRX is not very accurate, which does become a pain when trying to find a certain place, and does not show the speed. I have since taken it in for updates, but yet the issues persist.

  • Cadillac Dubbs

    I have a 1991 Cadillac el dorado and it’s lagging when I accelerate and it’s backfiring I recently changed spark plugs and wires… can someone guide and help me plz
