Question about 2002 Cadillac Seville
I have a 202 cadillac seville with a 4.6 northstar engine. Last year when the car had 74,000 miles the head bolts pulled out of the block. The engine was repaired under warranty. Cadillac had an insert they inserted in the block fixing the problem. 1 Year later the head bolt with the insert pulled out of the block and a headbolt on the other side pulled out taking the threads with it. The car now needs a new engine. The problem was caused by a defective block that cadillac knew about since the have re designed the block. Has anyone filed a lawsuit againt cadillac to be compensated for the costs of repairing the car.
This has happened to many northstar engines and no suits have been filed and won so far as I know. If you are a regular Cadillac customer that has purchased 2 or more Cadillac's in the past decade I would call the 800 number as shown in the owners manual and file a complaint. The loader you are the better for you. They do take care of their customers in all cases I have heard and seen quite a few in my years at the dealership I worked at
