Recall roundup: Cadillac ATS and CTS for braking problems image

General Motors is currently announcing a recall for the ATS and the CTS models because of a problem with the braking system.

Several examples of the Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS are currently affected by a recall which has been recently issued by the car manufacturer. According to the US based marque, the models in question have a problem with the bracket, which may fracture, increasing the risk of a crash.

“The affected vehicles have a bracket between the brake pedal assembly and the rod that actuates the brakes that may fracture during normal brake pedal operation. If the bracket fractures, the driver would not be able to apply the brakes, increasing the risk of a crash”, says the NHTSA in its recall summary and consequence.

The affected models are from the 2015 model year and owners of them will be notified by General Motors. The company’s dealers will be inspecting the vehicles and replacing the affected bracket, free of charge. General Motors didn’t say, at this time, whether any reports have been received from customers, related to this issue. The total number of affected cars stands at 2,163. The recall is expected to begin on the 1st of August, 2015.
