GM Recalls 18,000 New Cadillac SRX Models

GM has issued a recall of 18,871 new 2013 Cadillac SRX models. The production dates for these cars are from January 31, 2012 to march 18, 2013, but only for models that were fitted with 18-inch factory wheels. It seems that the wheel lugs for the 18-inch wheels on these models may come loose, which will ruin just about anyone's day. Obviously if the lug nuts loosen, they may fall off, which may lead to the wheels coming off of the vehicle entirely. GM has said it will begin this recall next week, notifying owners and providing them with a free change of their wheel nuts with one that will not come loose. There will be no charge for the service. Owners may contact GM at 1-800-521-7300 to schedule their free fix. Read on for the full report...

Report Receipt Date: MAY 16, 2013
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V202000
Component(s): WHEELS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 18,871
Manufacturer: General Motors LLC


SUMMARY:
General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 Cadillac SRX vehicles, manufactured January 31, 2012, through March 18, 2013, and equipped with 18 inch wheels. On the affected vehicles, the wheel lug nuts may loosen.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the lug nuts loosen, they may fall off or cause the wheel studs to fracture. Either condition would allow the wheel to separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will remove and reinstall the wheel nuts by performing a tire rotation, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by June 3, 2013. Owners may contact GM at 1-800-521-7300. GM's recall campaign number is 13116.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
