Recall roundup: Cadillac SRX for TMC problems image

Cadillac has issued a recall for the 2013 SRX crossovers because of a problem with the TCM (transmission control module).

Some 2013 Cadillac SRX crossovers, equipped with the 3.6 liter engines, are the subject to a new recall issued by General Motors. According to the North American based carmaker, the model mentioned above has a three to four second lag in the acceleration because of a TCM programming and this can increase the risk of a crash.

“In the affected vehicles, in certain driving situations, there may be a three to four second lag in acceleration due to the transmission control module (TCM) programming”, says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in its summary of the recall.

Owners of the 2013 Cadillac SRX models, produced between the 29th of May 2012 and the 26th of June 2013, equipped with the 3.6 liter engines, will be notified by General Motors. The company’s dealers will reprogram the TCM free of charge, but a notification schedule hasn’t been provided yet.
