    Default GM Extends Supercharger Warranty On 2009 -2013 Cadillac CTS-V



    The Car Connection has reported that GM has found a problem with the supercharger on select 2009 - 2013 Cadillac CTS-Vs.

    On affected vehicles, the supercharger may not perform as designed, resulting in contamination of the unit's internal bearing shaft grease. When the problem is present, a rattle can be heard emanating from the engine at idle; slight acceleration above idle will cause it to go away.

    If left uncorrected, contamination of the internal shaft bearing grease will accelerate into bearing failure, resulting in a loud squeal, then possible catastrophic engine damage or a no-start condition.

    On affected vehicles, GM dealers will replace the supercharger at no charge.
    For further information you can contact GM at 1-800-458-8006. You can also contact your local dealer with your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) to determine if your vehicle is affected.

    Great find! I hope EVERYONE with a V gets a new unit. GM doesn't pass out new things very often.
    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Glad I haven't done my pulley swap yet. My CTS-V has started getting the rattling noise in the last month or so. Was going to swap pulley for more boost and put in solid isolator, which supposedly is the fix for the rattling. Now I'll just go in and get a new supercharger!

    Hi Cubby558,
    Iím sorry you have been experiencing a rattling noise over the past month. I see you are considering going into the dealership to see if this rattling noise is correlated to the supercharger special coverage. Do you need help setting up that appointment? If so, I would be happy to assist you! I hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks for the offer. My dealership is just down the street from me and I am personal friends with the owner, so I don't have an issue getting an appointment.
