The Cadillac CTS is a mid-size luxury sedan from GM which was on the US market from 2003 to 2019. It was discontinued in 2019 after eight years of steadily declining sales, making room for its indirect replacement, the Cadillac CT5.
With its high-end finish, comfort, quietness, and sporty-driving, the CTS held its own as a credible alternative to the BMW 5 series or Mercedes-Benz E Class. The standard 2.0L turbo I4 engine was enough power for most drivers but a 3.6L V6, 3.6L twin-turbo V6 and a supercharged 6.2L V8 were also available.
Recent year models of the CTS have been subject to recalls for various problems including a recall of 27,000 GM vehicles for defects leading to a loss of the power steering assist (2016-2018), and defects with the seat heaters which can result in fire (2014-2016.) The CUE infotainment system has become infamous for flaws in its design and installation, leading to bubbles and cracks in the display, unresponsiveness and driver frustration. It has even been the subject of a class action lawsuit.
Buyers of the CTS expect high-end performance from their vehicle and prompt action when they have a problem. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

The bracket between the brake pedal assembly and the rod that causes the brake to function could fracture during normal operation.
