GM Recalling Cadillac CTS Over Vehicle Handling

General Motors says it is recalling “more than 50,000 Cadillac CTS vehicles worldwide to fix a loose joint that could cause a rear wheel to become unstable, making it hard for drivers to steer.” (Washington AP, 2/17).

GM maintains that the recall is precautionary and no injuries have been reported. The danger of the defect is the potential for a sudden change in the steering and handling of the Cadillac CTS, which could cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

GM says owners may call 866-982-2339 for additional information. Similarly, the NHTSA website is always a good source of information.
