Recall roundup: Cadillac ATS for power sunroof controls image

General Motors has issued yet another recall, this time for the Cadillac ATS, because of a problem discovered with the power sunroof controls.

The North American based automotive giant General Motors has recently announced a recall for the Cadillac ATS because of a problem spotted with the power sunroof controls. According to the car manufacturer, owners of several Cadillac ATS vehicles will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get this problem solved.

“The power-operated roof panel systems on these vehicles will auto-close when the non-recessed portion of the ‘slide’ or ’tilt’ switches are pressed and the roof panel is open. Because these switches are not fully recessed, they can be actuated with less force than required to comply with applicable federal standards”, said General Motors.

The total number of affected Cadillac ATS sedans is over 60,000 but the carmaker is currently unaware of any crashes, injuries or deaths related to this condition. To fix the affected vehicles, a switch trim plate will be replaced. Out of the total 66,998 units of the Cadillac ATS affected by this condition, 58,698 units are in the United States and each of them has been produced between 2013 and 2015. The ATS-V is not part of this recall. Owners of the above mentioned models should contact their local Cadillac representative in order to find out more on the topic. The recall is expected to begin soon and all repairs / replacements will be made free of charge to the owners.
