2013 Cadillac SRX recalls

 

Suspension & Steering, May 16, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Lug nuts tighten on the wheel studs to secure the wheels to the vehicle. These vehicles are being recalled because the lug nuts can loosen and fall off, or cause the wheel studs to break. A vibration would commonly occur as the wheel lugs loosen and continued driving with loose or missing lug nuts would result in the affected wheel falling off, increasing the risk of a crash. To correct this concern, dealers will remove and re-install the lug nuts, and perform a tire rotation free of charge.

Drive Train, March 15, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

When driving, if you let your foot off the accelerator, the engine will provide some braking effect unless your transmission is in "Sport" mode. Certain vehicles are being recalled because the transmission may unexpectedly shift into its "Sport" mode, removing the engine braking effect on these vehicles. Unexpected loss of engine braking can increase stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software in the transmission control module to correct this concern.
