Recall roundup: Cadillac SRX image

The North American based automaker Cadillac has recently announced a recall for more than 18.000 units of the Cadillac SRX because of transmission issues.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 18.000 units of the Cadillac SRX will be affected by the recall and its owners will have to make a trip back to the dealerships in order to get the problem fixed. The NHTSA is saying that some transmission issues could allow a parked vehicle to roll away. General Motors actually received a report about a vehicle that rolled without warning as its driver attempted to shift between park and drive, and has decided to inspect all vehicles, leading to this recall.

The Cadillac SRX recall will affect the 2010 – 2011 model years and it includes 8.789 units sold in the United States. GM said that 11 out of 710 vehicles were identified with improperly assembled shift cables, and all of those have been repaired before being sold. General Motors’ dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace the transmission shift cables free of charge to make sure it is properly routed. The manufacturer will start notifying dealers next month but there’s no official word yet on when the actual recall will begin.
