Cadillac XTS Recall Announced by GM

Tina Robinson3 years ago

General Motors has recently announced a recall for 63,900 Cadillac sedans due to an issue with the vehicles' brake system.

The recall was announced Monday after the issue was detected during an internal review of last month’s recall for 1.6 million GM vehicles equipped with faulty ignition switches.

Description of the Brake System Defect

According to a report by USA Today, GM has recalled approximately 63,900 2013 and 2014 Cadillac XTS sedans due to a brake issue that can cause overheating and engine fires.

GM says that a plug in the brake system has the potential to become loose. This allows corrosion to enter the system and may cause overheating.

So far the automaker has received two reports of engine-compartment fires in dealer-owned vehicles and two warranty claims made by consumers in connection to the problem.

GM has stated that the recall is not connected to February’s ignition switch recall.

GM Under Investigation for Previous Recall

  • This Cadillac recall came as GM faces multiple federal and congressional investigations for their recall 1.6 million vehicles in February.
  • The previously recalled vehicles were found to have faulty ignition switches that could cause a loss of power to the engine if bumped or jostled.
  • Such incidents could result in the loss of multiple safety features, including power steering, anti-lock brakes and airbag functionality.
  • GM has confirmed that at least 31 frontal collisions and 13 deaths have been attributed to the ignition switch defect.
