TO THE EDITOR:
Regularly in your pages I read about Johan de Nysschen's plans to restore the primacy of Cadillac among domestic luxury-car buyers. Based on my initial experience, I am skeptical.
At the end of November, I bought my first new Cadillac, a 2017. To my dismay, the day after delivery I noticed that my car lacks a feature that's clearly listed on the Cadillac website as among those standard for my model, a locking fuel filler door.
Nowhere do I see stated the usual disclaimer about how equipment may be changed at any time without further notice. This circumstance promptly took away much of the pride and pleasure I might have had with this costly purchase.
It appears as though a conventional key-locking filler cap cannot be installed on the existing capless setup. My local dealership, Waldorf Cadillac, promises to make every effort to work with Cadillac to resolve this discrepancy.
