Recall Alert: 2013 Cadillac XTS

General Motors is recalling 12,626 model-year 2013 versions of the new Cadillac XTS sedan due to problems with the rear seat head restraints, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Oct. 12, 2011, through Aug. 30, 2012, (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and use head restraints that may not lock in the upright position, failing to comply with federal head restraint height safety standards. This could lead to an increased risk of head and neck injury in the event of a crash.

GM started notifying owners earlier this week, and dealers will replace the head restraints for free. Owners can call GM at 800-458-8006 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
