All,

I have a ‘18 CTS-V with no sunroof - i searched as long as I did for a car without one because I didn’t want the extra weight that high in the car, and then I’d prefer to avoid potential issues with the unit (getting stuck open, leaks…etc.)

What I’ve noticed is that there’s some…slack in the headliner when I push up on it in the middle. It’s not totally tight against the roof. When the car was new I thought it was because of a potential airbag or something else, but now I’m suspicious. Can anyone else confirm that I’m not alone? Or maybe I am and I need to get it fixed?

When you say push up in the middle, do you mean directly in the middle of the car or in between the front seats?

Directly in the middle of the car - in between the front seats is pretty tight to the headliner but moving backward after that the feeling of looseness/slop comes into play. Hopefully the image helps? I feel like I can see it when I look at the in cabin lights and the shadows they give.

Hmm thats odd. You could probably fix it with some spray adhesive but the dealer will want to replace the whole thing.

Well, I checked today, your not alone, I never noticed it. Dealer fix will be to replace it, which probably involves removing the windshield or back glass, and honestly it will probably do it again. I wouldn't bother but it's your car.

I almost didn't comment until I thought about the same issue. My Benz doesn't have this issue... It also doesn't have 1000hp, Porsche... Same deal. Shit. Chevy 3500... Pick two, cheap fast reliable.....

Well it may not directly correlate but still.... This is the best caddi will ever do. The new CT whatever it is... Great... It's still and never will be the quality of a German car period.

Try warranty, try anything but they're all kinda subpar. The difference is... Ease of parts, (for modding but gm cant even get replacement stock parts) I digress on the di injection. Go to your dealer...

If you have a good one maybe you'll get it, but If youve noticed... Shit I waited months for a sc and trans, and a stock block failure.... when I was stock. They try to refuse every claim. Our cars are not perfect but they're fun.

Good luck but this is "American made". That's the best you get for 100k. It sucks but it is what it is. I'm not thrilled with allot on mine but I'm understanding they just won't compete with the euro counterparts..of course until you want to roll race... :) and unless you're modded... Lol we lose too..(blackwing could've something special but it was garbage )

Go to the dealer or find a dealer you can work with, aside. Sell the car and buy a 3 series if your head liner is your biggest issue.

Or even better. Have a starliner put in. What we get is what we get. BTW the new ones are gorgeous including the seats How we cant get air cooled seats is beyond me...

But just my 2 cents. Good luck! You'll never get a look like you get with a big cam in these cars where people go, "um... Wtf is that?" :)


Wasn't insulting you, the head liner is shit, just like allot of it. But you have to take all of it with a grain of salt... Good luck, I'd love the name of the dealer that will actually warranty it and I'm sure a few guys on here would love as well. Most suck.

It just occurred to me... Easy fix if it bothers you. Slump down lower in the seat so your girl's head doesn't hit the headliner while riding... :D

It will end up a warranty issue im sure..

After all it is a problem now that I think about it...

So, in an anti-climax.

I am a moron. The headliner is molded to dip in that area - where the sunroof would go if it were installed. Got a look at it in the daylight and went to the dealer where they had a gen 3 CTS waiting for service.

Same thing.
