Buick and Cadillac Safety Recall

Washington, D.C.—(ENEWSPF)—November 12, 2010. General Motors announced it is recalling certain model year 2010 – 2011 DTS and Buick Lucerne vehicles equipped with V8 engines. The starter or alternator cable is in contact with the power steering return line. If either the starter or alternator cable is contacting the power steering return line, the cable could wear through the line, causing a power steering fluid leak.

As a consequence: a power steering leak could result in a loss of power steering, increasing the risk of a crash, and/or the leak onto hot engine parts could cause an engine compartment fire.

To remedy the problem, dealers will secure and if necessary re-route the lines to prevent contact. This service will be performed free of chare. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before November 19, 2010. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Buick at 1-866-608-8080 and at the Owner Center at www.gmownercenter.com.
