1. CTS owners should beware of falling stars. Safety stars, that is.

    If you bought a 2014 CTS, one of the deciding factors might have been the car's 5-star safety rating in three critical categories: frontal crash driver, frontal crash passenger, and rollover. However, GM started sending out letters to owners saying "Our bad, the window sticker was totally wrong. Here's a coupon for some free OnStar. We cool?"

    OK, while I'm paraphrasing their exact words, I am not making up the OnStar offer. That was the best they could come up with.…

  2. Cadillac is pretty sure your car's brakes work.

    Of course, the Titanic captain was pretty sure there weren't any icebergs in the way (and we all know how that went down).

  5. GM is recalling 19,225 Cadillac CTS vehicles from the 2013-14 model years because the wipers could stop working.

    I believe it was Socrates who said "a wiper that does not wipe is not a wiper at all." Or it could have been my Uncle Sal. Either way ... the failure will only happen after a very specific situation -- when the wipers are blocked by snow or ice while the vehicle is jump started. Given how awful last winter was I suppose that's actually pretty likely.…
