Recall Alert: 2009-2010 Cadillac CTS Sedan

2010 Cadillac CTS

General Motors is recalling 20,224 Cadillac CTS and CTS-V sedans from the 2009-2010 model years for failing to conform to federal safety standards, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In a frontal crash, an unbelted small adult, who is less than 5 feet tall and weighs 110 pounds, in the front passenger seat could be at risk for a leg injury. Obviously, all passengers should always wear their seat belts.

GM will modify or replace the sedan’s glove box and, in some vehicles, the automaker will modify the instrument panel’s magnesium beam. The modifications will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before Oct. 20.

For more information, owners may call Cadillac at 866-982-2339 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hot line at 888-327-4236.

Umm, isn't it the law that all front seat occupants must be wearing a seat belt?

While it's nice that we want to protect everyone regardless, if you choose not to use the provided safety systems in your vehicle (or one you ride in), how is that the manufacturers fault if you get hurt?

Shoot this is not good, guess most people will get an STS rental! lol

This is the stupidest recall I've ever heard of. Are they going to modify the windshield too as I think you can smash you head on that if you're unbuckled.

If you choose to not use a seatbelt, you choose to risk facing consequences, including injury.

Unnecessary recall, but since Toyota's "fiasco" NHTSA's been rolling them out almost daily.
