Recall roundup: Cadillac SRX for power lag image

The North American based automaker Cadillac has recently announced a recall for several SRX models because of a possible power lag.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 50,571 vehicles are being affected by this new recall in the United States alone and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem solved. General Motors says that the problem is due to faulty transmission control module programming and the company is currently in the process of notifying owners of the recall.

The transmission control module will be reprogrammed free of charge by the carmaker’s dealers and the problems have been noticed while the gas pedal is pressed, because some vehicles have a three to four second delay in power delivery. This can increase the risk of a crash but no reports of injuries have been related to this issue. The recall is affecting the 3.6 liter V6 2013 Cadillac SRX, produced between the 29th of May, 2012, and the 26th of June, 2013. For more details on this recall, owners of the 2013 Cadillac SRX models, mentioned above, can contact GM at 1-800-458-8006 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
