Want a second opinion. 2008 Cadillac CTS. I have a 2008 CTS
Hello. I have a 2008 CTS that starts shaking like a bad rotor but no one seems to be able to figure it out. It will run smoothly and then all of a sudden it will start shaking so bad I need to stop. After starting and stopping several times it will quit. I noticed it feels like the brakes are on and the rotors are getting hot and smelling. Now I noticed the service brake assist, stabilitrak, and traction control are coming on and when shutting the car off disappear. I think the brake assist is causing the shaking. What is your suggestion? Paul There is 110,000 miles on the Cadillac? Have had a couple of shops look at it. None could figure out exactly was cause the sporadic shaking. Felt like a bad tie rod or something. Had the hub assembly checked. All good. I am pretty sure it has something to do with the ABS control module as it seems like it will start braking as i can feel the car braking. Doesn't do this all the time. The lights have been coming on and off with the service Brake Assist, Stabilitrak, and Traction Control indicators. It will run smoothly for awhile and then it will start this bad shaking as if a wheel is about to fall off … read more
