Cadillac CTS Recalled by GM due to Brake Pedal Issue

by Zack Colt

I am starting too get really bored of all the recalls that re going around these days. I just cannot understand how things like these are possible, and especially as often as they do.

Anyways, General Motors announced that certain model year year 2012 Cadillac CTS models built from Oct. 21, 2011 through Oct. 26, 2011 are to be recalled. According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, all the models produced in that perioud of time are likely to have a condition in which the power vacuum brake boost pushrod retention may not be torqued to proper specification.

“If the nut is not torqued to the proper specification, the nut could loosen and allow the pushrod to separate from the brake pedal,” the NHTSA said. “This could result in a loss of ability to brake and a vehicle to crash without prior warning.”

The number of cars that could be affected is no less than 674, and the measure Cadillac will take in order to fix the problem is inspecting the power vacuum brake boost pushrod retention nut and torque the nut to proper spec.

Owners of the problematic models can contact Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006.
