Any other instances where this has happened? As in, have any other CTS owners experienced similar problems?

No idea, I don't frequent any of the caddy forums, since the primary driver is my GF, and she says I'm not allowed to mod it. The dealer doesn't seem real surprised, but I have no idea what that means. They don't seem to bright.

Thumbs up

here is a story I have to tell. my dad bought a 85 sedan deville one of the new small front drive ones with the small V8. we bought it when it was only 3 years old from a used car lot. the car was mainly for my step mom who used it for work, car had great power and decent MPG. well one day my dad and my brother and me were heading to the mall on a sunday morning. only sears was open so we were walking to that part of the mall when a man was calling out to us. he ran up and asked us if that was our caddy and my dad told him it was. he said well you have bad oil leak. we walk back to the car and you can see a puddle about 6-8" diameter under the car and a trail of oil leading out the back of the car and down to the end of the parking lot. now the oil light never came on but it did when my dad turned the key on (did not start it). we called AAA and had them tow it to our local GM car dealer that sold caddys. the car was still under warranty from the factory they gave us a BRAND new crate motor from the factory. the problem with the car was those early 'baby' caddys had iron blocks with aluminum heads and the seals went bad (my dad was not aware of this, but he was now). we got the car fixed and good as new and the car stayed with us till it was traded in a few years later. so dont let 'the man' tell you he is putting a used motor in your new CTS FIGHT THE POWER

Something sounds off, lemon laws are for a whole new car; they still have to use new replacement parts for your warranty repair.

I second that, Tal

Yes, something isnt right here. If your brand new CTS has a hole in the block, they should be replacing it with a brand new block. Isnt that the rules? lol

Lemon laws are for 'trouble' cars that can't seem to get fixed and allow a buyer to exchange it for a brand new car, or sometimes cash back. The exact details vary state to state.

Why? Is there a history of faulty V6 engines?

We watched a C6 Z06 grenade its motor by throwing a rod at Gingerman raceway. That was indeed a lemon, and it does happen.

Having only joined this site this week I may ask a question already covered ?

Where is the V6 made? More than one plant?

I got rid of my 97 STS Northstar because it was an oil eater 16000 Miles.

So, is anyone looking for gently used caddy with a new motor, assuming I ever get it back?
My dealer replaced my 3.2 V6 AFTER 2 rods twisted and melted a piston. He got me a new factory short block and they put my intake back on. This was at 4000 miles AFTER the warranty expired.
