2004 Cadillac XLR Recalls
The light bulb for the daytime running lights (DRL), turn signal, and parking lamps may burn out prematurely. If this were to occur, awareness of the driver's presence would be reduced and driver's intentions may not be known, increasing the risk of a crash.
In temperatures between -22 and -40 degrees F, and if one of the accelerator pedal return springs breaks, the engine may not return to idle as quickly as required. If this were to happen, more braking effort may be needed to stop the vehicle.
On certain vehicles, the rear brake lines may be too close to the exhaust, which could heat the lines and cause the brake fluid to boil. If the brake fluid boils, effectiveness of the rear brakes would be reduced and a crash could occur.
The control arm may separate from the steering knuckle, causing the vehicle to drop at that corner. In extreme situations, the wheel may separate completely from the vehicle. Either condition would impair handling and increase the chances of a crash.
