General Motors Has Recalled the 2004 Cadillac CTS

(SafetyAlerts) - The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced.

General Motors Corporation

Models: Cadillac CTS Year: 2004

Cadillac SRX Year: 2004

Number Potentially Involved: 6,771

Dates of Manufacture: June – August 2003

Noncompliance: Certain passenger and sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 207, "Seating Systems." One or both front anchor tabs for the front bucket seats are not engaged in the floor pan reinforcement slots. A seat with only one tab engaged or neither engaged would not meet the static rearward loading test requirements of the standard. In some crash conditions, the seat could pivot rearward and its occupant or a rear seat occupant could be injured more severely.

Remedy: Dealers will ensure that both front anchor tabs are fully seated in the floor pan reinforcement slots. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during October 2003. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339.

[NHTSA Recall No.03V346/GM Recall No. 03050].

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
