2011 Cadillac CTS RecallsThe Engine May Stall
The weight on the key ring and/or some other jarring event may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine and increasing the risk of a crash. In the event of a crash, if the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings, and vehicles with slotted keys will receive key inserts to correct this concern. Note: Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring.
The roof rail air bags may deploy unexpectedly due to excessive vibration from the vehicle's drive shaft. Dealers will replace the rear drive shaft assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
