The North American based automaker Cadillac has recently announced a recall for certain XTS luxury sedans because of a problem which might lead to a fire.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are a total of 63,903 units of the Cadillac XTS, in the United States alone, which have been affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem which may lead to a fire solved.
The NHTSA says that the cavity plug on the brake booster pump connector can end up dislodging and if this will happen, it will allow a relay in the brake booster pump connector to corrode and cause a resistive short which might melt the connector or even start a fire.
The carmaker is currently in the process of notifying owners who will be scheduled for some free of charge repairs / replacements. Cadillac says that it’s not aware of any accidents or injuries in the XTS luxury sedans related to this issue. The recall affects the 2013 – 2014 model year XTS cars. If you own such a vehicle, you can contact the NHTSA hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339 for any extra details on this recall.
