2004 Cadillac CTS 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 82000 miles
This problem happens in the morning after the car has sat all night. We live in northern Minnesota, but we have a heated garage for the CTS. The problem happens in the summer as well.
When we back out of the garage in the morning (about 30 yards) and shift the car into forward, it does not engage for about 5 to 6 seconds. It goes into gear fine the rest of the day and this only occurs once in the morning. The dealer machanic was able to duplicate the problem, but can't find anything wrong iwth it.
We purchased an GMC extended warranty for $2,200 when we bought the car used. It has about 500 miles left on the warranty, so I want it fixed before the warranty runs out. We were thinking of asking for an extention of the warranty on just the transmission, but that probably won't happen.
We have had the car into the dealership twice and they are telling me nothing is wrong with it.
I have heard this is a know problem with the 2004 CTS and that there is a service bulletin relating to it.
Do you know what the problem is? Do you have a suggested course of action.
have the same problem?
