General Motors Has Recalled the 2004 Cadillac CTS
- 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
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.
