  1. Poor Managent

    Yes GM miscaluclated and kept building those Profitable gas guzzling SUV's (management decision) While Toyota is headed in a different direction (Hybrids) fuel efficent family cars and a quality product. Yea I blame GM management. Perhaps they have to many car line to many different motors ect. Management hopefully will get severly cut as well. At least no Bonus! Ashame for the grunts. ok you made your point, GM miscalculated and GM and Cadillac sucks YOU made your point repeatedly! For the record I disagree, but hey opinions vary. You may feel more at home here http://gmproblems.com/ bring your attorney who you say is a Consumer Advocate and wants to get to the bottom of their practice, quoted from http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/showt...?t=33960&page=2 and where you exist as CBOYLE from Pa... Am I reading this wrong your last post over there was in May? Your continued rhetoric is surprising since a bunch of us overlooked your caustic bashing behavior to help you with your oil burning last night. To start a new needling thread is a bit over the top. You have lost my help from this point forward, and in my mind you have made it to troll status. http://caddyinfo.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=7877 See if you have the ability to play a different tune or a flip side. I am not sure what your intent is, you have been told this is a Cadillac Enthusiast site, maybe being retired you have a lot of needling time on your hands and lost your shirt on GM stock, who knows. Maybe you are trying to build a case to use against GM with your consumer advocate attorney, who knows. Your form however is very troll like..not discussion like, its negative We should stop feeding the troll. Perhaps the truth is hitting home.

    I do not see any "Hate" here. This appears to be a discussion. Not even a debate much less "hate". Just ideas being kicked around Try to have a open mind.

  6. DTS Oil Burner

    We have 3 Cadillac dealers in our area Colonial cadillac Trenton NJ Fawlkner Cadillac Trevose Pa Charles Cadillac Bristol Pa. Each one has done something to the SLS Settled on Charles because they are most cooperative. Most of all I know they will help my wife if I am not home. This means a lot to us The mechanic who works on my car I have know for over 35 years and has worked at Charles for that length of time. He use to be my Motor Pool Sergent when we were in the National Guard many years ago.
  7. GM Bankruptcy??

    Woow The dealer is not "asking" for a tip. I gave him a $20 tip when I picked it up. We always tip at Christmas for people who help us out throught the year. Perhaps he was thinking ahead. I put Michelin Hydo Edeg tires on the wifes car a few months ago thus opted for the 4 Wheel alignment. He advised it was not necessary or it would have been covered by GMPP. Purely my choice.

    Amen!!! was just interested in this "procedure" he was talking about.
  9. GM Bankruptcy??

    Since we had been going back and forth I thought you would be interested in the total outcome. Fact is this is what the Service manager advised when I picked it up! You can add $20.00 tip on to it if you like. Wating for his Christmas gift as well I am sure! My wife needs service when I am not around. She has to be able to just call the dealer for help. A few years ago they sent a guy out without a deville for us to use while they took the SLS in for repairs.
  10. DTS Oil Burner

    Will do! Have to do when wife not in car. 5w30 winter 10w30 summer stopped Mobil 1 about 2 years ago. change oil and filter every 3 months regardless of mileage. When new changed oil and filter at 500 miles oil and filter at 1000 miles I am scared they might damage motor with the cleaning procedure suggested for $400.00 ???? I think they pump it up with cleaning solvent let it set and start it up and blow it out than change the oil. might break a ring with that procedure ????? Thanks for the suggestion
  11. DTS Oil Burner

    I started a new thread because this does not fall under GM bankruptcy. When I picked up the 1999 SLS today. I asked the service manager about the 2001 DTS which uses oil about every 1000 miles. He said that is close to normal but said their is a Carbon cleaning procedure that may help. Since the car is out of the Bumper to Bumper warranty and it is not covered bt the GM major guard I would have to pay for it $400.00. says it takes 8 hours. I do not want to cause any more problems and do not really care about a $1.50 quart of oil. The car has 33,000 miles on it and I run it hard lots of WOT. Any recommendations about GEM number two
  12. GM Bankruptcy??

    Perhaps your right about the figure the service manager tossed at me. Maybe he wanted to impress me with how lucky we were to have bought the GM major guard warranty from him.

    Half case leak was fixed LAST June. I asked the dealer costs and he said about $3500. Keep in mind they are talking list price. The rack alone lists for about $975.00 Master cylinder List about $160.00 Water pump list $75.00 Bushings about $20.00 List 4 wheel alignment coolant brake fluid Rental car $400.00 approx Labor rate $85.00 Some day I may list all repairs on this Gem as well as the other Gem 2001 DTS

  15. GM Bankruptcy??

    You can add Water Pump to wife's 1999 SLS I went to dealer early today and they showed it to me. cost me only $50.00. This was about a $3500.00 job very dissapointed. Glad to see some really good discussion on GM problems. Hopefully GM will pull out and just build a better Product! Did not mean to hurt anyone's feelings but wanted to see some Honest discussion on General Motors problems. Bamkruptcy is a warning sign that something is wrong in which case you go back to the basics. Kool- Aide is reference to Jim Jones where he got all of his followers to drink posion. Charlie
