I bought this a year ago March and it's been my daily driver since then. It has the infamous "Northstar" head-lifting/overheating issue. This one pumps engine compression into the cooling system (no coolant in the oil). It runs and drives fine except - no hard acceleration allowed, no hill climbing and no driving over 50mph; add a gallon of water about every 40 miles...or when it (the dashboard) asks you to.

So...please know this is NOT truly a drivable car, it will need major engine work and it needs front pads and rotors (passenger side is starting to cut into the rotor). Technically you could use it 'in-town only' as it sits but I really do not recommend it. A/C don't blow cold. Trunk and gas-door buttons do not work. Dashboard is warped from sun damage and lifting in the middle around the defroster vent. The leather interior is in good shape but has one small cig burn on the driver's door armrest. There is a small trim piece missing from one of the door pulls. Heater core is bypassed because its leaking. I've replaced almost everything else coolant related, radiator, t-stat, w/pump, all idler and tension pullys and belts. New alternator last fall. 3 new tires with less than 10k on them. All the metal is good, the only dent is on top of the right fender (see pic).

Thanks for looking.

GM announces 6 recalls covering nearly 720k cars

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:30:00 EST

General Motors has announced yet another sprawling recall campaign, with six separate elements covering 717,950 vehicles on US roads. At this point in 2014, it's starting to seem like there are more days with a GM recall than without. Perhaps most troubling about this latest volley, though, is that every vehicle is from the past few years, indicating that GM's quality woes may not be limited to pre-bankruptcy vehicles.
The largest element of this latest campaign covers 414,333 units, and includes the 2011 to 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, 2010 to 2012 Chevy Equinox, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX and the 2011 to 2012 Buick Regal and LaCrosse. Only vehicles with powered, height-adjustable seats are covered. In these particular cars and crossovers, the bolt that secures the height adjuster actuator may loosen of its own accord and in some cases fall out completely. If this happens, the seats will be able to move both up and down. GM claims the vehicles are safe to drive, provided drivers don't vertically adjust their seats. This particular issue has caused one crash and three injuries.

Lansing builds its millionth Cadillac

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 08:02:00 EST

Cadillacs are built at plants across North America. The Escalade is assembled in Texas, the SRX in Mexico and the XTS in Ontario. But the bulk of Cadillac's lineup - or the smaller members of the family, at least - are built in Michigan. And while the upcoming ELR will be built alongside the Chevy Volt at the Detroit/Hamtramck facility (which incidentally opened with the Cadillac Eldorado back in '86), the majority of those Cadillacs built in Michigan are handled by the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant.
In fact, Lansing Grand River just celebrated its millionth Cadillac built. The landmark millionth vehicle is a new 2014 CTS sedan in Red Obsession Tintcoat. The facility opened in 2001 and has built Cadillacs almost exclusively since then, assembling the CTS and ATS model lines, though in a couple of years it will also handle production of the Chevy Camaro.

Cadillac teases production ELR ahead of Detroit Auto Show

Tue, 18 Dec 2012 10:14:00 EST

General Motors has just confirmed that the 2014 Cadillac ELR will make its official debut next month at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. We've already seen the ELR testing earlier this year using the same range-extended electric drive system as the Chevrolet Volt, and based on the shadowy image above, we're happy to see that the coupe's styling has stayed pretty true to 2009 Converj Concept.
The two-door ELR will be built alongside the Volt at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck plant starting later next year. Aside from this info, Cadillac has remained tight-lipped on the specific details of the car. But all that will all change on January 15.
Until then, all we have to offer you is the press release posted after the jump.
