General Motors has released a Customer Satisfaction Program for select units of the 2024 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing due to an issue where the trunklid would pop open by itself.
Certain units of the 2024 CT5-V Blackwing equipped with the Carbon Fiber 2 Package may have a condition where the trunklid inadvertently opens by itself. Certified GM technicians are to inspect affected vehicles and reprogram the body control module as necessary. In addition, owners will receive a reimbursement check worth $100.
It’s worth noting that General Motors has not publicly disclosed the number of CT5-V Blackwing units affected by this Customer Satisfaction Program.
As for the specifics surrounding this inconvenience, the “regular” Cadillac CT5 is offered with the Hands-Free Trunklid Release (RPO code TL3) feature, which is included and only available with the Platinum Package (RPO code PCJ) or Parking Package (RPO code Y6L) on Premium Luxury, Sport, and CT5-V trim levels. Notably, this feature is not on offer for the “base” Luxury trim.
The Hands-Free Trunklid Release option is also available on the CT5-V Blackwing as part of the Parking Package (RPO code Y6L). However, if the Carbon Fiber 2 Package (RPO code CF2) is also checked off, the Hands-Free Trunklid Release feature is deleted.
With all that in mind, it appears as though some CT5-V Blackwing units equipped with the Carbon Fiber 2 Package left the factory with the Hands-Free Trunklid Release feature still operative.
As a reminder, the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is powered by the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, rated at 668 horsepower and 659 pound-feet of torque. Transmission options consist of either the GM 10-speed automatic transmission or the Tremec six-speed manual transmission.
