GM Recall of Certain Model Year 2010 – 2011 Cadillac SRX Vehicles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—December 22, 2011.

Summary:  General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured from October 26, 2008, through June 23, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Number 114, ‘Theft Protection.” These vehicles may have a transmission shift cable that was improperly installed and may come out of the transmission bracket.

Consequence:  The driver may be unable to shift the transmission out of gear, resulting in no motion or the shifter may inaccurately indicate that the transmission is in park when it is not, allowing the vehicle to roll away and cause a possible crash.

Remedy:  GM will notify owners, and dealers will ensure that the transmission shift cable is properly routed and seated in the transmission cable bracket.  This service will be performed free of charge.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin during January 2012. Owners may contact Cadillac at 866-982-2339.

Notes:  GM’s Safety Recall Campaign Number is 11348.  Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
