  1. Let me add one more thing about extending the warranty on an older car.

    Most warranty's have a provision that if the costs of the repair exceeds the book value of the car, they can just pay you book value and get out of the repair. You need to really think about that before you do what I was able to do.

    my 2011 DTS Platinum was about to go out of the GMEPP platinum warranty early next year. Since the car has only about 54K on it I went over to the dealer and asked about an extension.
    Honestly did not think it could be done. Well pleasantly surprised since the car is under 10 years old they could plane another GMEPP Platinum warranty on it with no deductible if the car is taken to their shop for repairs. If taken to any other dealer the $100 deductible will apply
    The costs was about $4400 and get $700 back on the cancelled GMEPP warranty.
    So now covered until 2025 or 105,000 miles.
    Lots of money but peace of mind.
    Keep in mind NOT all dealers have the ability to do this. I called Allan Black Cadillac who sold the first GMEPP he said "GM only gives you one bite of the apple"
    Glad I checked further.
  3. One Caddy dealer told me GM has something called FPAC. This is a system that if the dealer is working on a car and the Tech is in need of a discontinued part the dealer can go into this FPAC system and provide the VIN number. Any dealer with that part on the shelf is required to ship it for next day delivery.

    Never heard of that. Not quite that desperate. Just trying the Platinum DTS number one shape as long as I can.

    Nothing on Parts Voice or Vintage  NOS

  4. I am in need of a two trunk torque springs for my 2011 DTS Platinum.

    One is discontinued. The other is still available. Do not want to go to Junkyard!

    We tried Vintage and Parts voice.

    Checked after marked no luck

    The one we cannot find is 15847684

    The other is still available 15847683

    I want to replace BOTH

    any suggestions permitted


  5. I have a 2011 Cadillac Platinum DTS.

    I would like to change the transmission filter and install a new pan gasket. Want AC Delco parts.

    Just want to confirm the correct kit is TF305.

    I think I saw two different kits and want to be sure before I drop the pan.

    Can someone confirm?

    Thank You

  6. Last Saturday we ordered a 2016 SRX Premium AWD vehicle after not being able to find a 2015 that the wife liked. We ordered it with nearly all the factory options we could find. Driver assist included

    We are trading her 2012 Premium AWD fully equipped.

    Now I am wondering if it comes with the memory wheel? The 2012 we are trading did not have this option. When I drive it I hesitate to move the steering wheel. My car is a 2011 Platinum DTS and we both like the wheel that adjusts to the driver .

    No big deal if it does not have it but was wondering if anyone here was aware if it would have it?


  7. When new keys are available my preference is to just purchase new ones since I do not like the looks of the FIX. 2011 DTS Platinum. Wife has keyless 2012 SRX so no problem

    Just wonder how long it will take to get the new blanks out to the parts departments?

  8. Just heard on news that the key recall now includes 2000 to 2005 Deville and 2004-11 DTS

    2013-2014 ATS and CTS for a faulty shift cable.

    I had a 2001 DTS for many years without a problem and currently own a 2011 DTS.

    any additional information?

  9. Alan Black (the owner) is the best and many times you will deal with him directly when you purchase a warranty. over the years I have purchased many warranty's from him. My 2001 DTS was covered until 2005 under the factory warranty. He extended it another 7 years under the GMPP I chose the zero deductible (expense) So it was covered until 2012. I recently purchased a 2011 Platinum DTS and got a warranty from Alan Black good until 2021.

    No Sales tax helps
