General Motors Corp. has issued a recall for the Cadillac Cts.
Description of Recall
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Cadillac CTS cars. Some of these cars have a condition in which a wax coating on the rear suspension toe link jam nuts may allow the nut(s) to loosen. If a nut sufficiently loosens, the toe link could separate and the rear wheel would be able to turn inboard or outboard. Owners may hear a metallic clanking noise coming from the rear of the car that may warn of a loosening nut.
Severity of the Defect
The driver may experience sudden changes with car handling and may not be able to control the car increasing the risk of a crash.
Cadillac’s Recommended Action
Dealers will clean all wax residue from the rear suspension toe link and install two new jam nuts. If necessary the rear suspension toe link may be replaced. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before March 24, 2011. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339 and at the owner center at www.Gmownercenter.com.
