Recall Alert: 2013-2014 Cadillac CTS, 2004-2006 Cadillac SRX

2014-cadillac-cts

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 554,000 model-year 2004-06 Cadillac SRX crossovers and model-year 2013 CTS sedans, coupes and wagons as well as model-year 2014 CTS coupes and wagons; the redesigned 2014 CTS sedan isn't affected.

The Problem: GM is reporting that the driver's knee could bump the key fob, causing the key to move out of the Run position. This could lead to a reduction or loss of power. This is an expansion of a previous recall.

The Fix: GM is changing the key's design; the change will make the ignition key and fob independent of each other. 

What Owners Should Do: The automaker has not yet provided an owner notification schedule; owners can call Cadillac at 800-333-4223 for more information.

gm stop spamming us with your recalls

Again, this is not a real fix. I'm assuming they're changing from a premium integrated/switchblade key/fob assembly (like Audi, VW, and others) and downgrading these cars to a separate key/remote, which is different from how the cars were originally sold.

GM should replace the ignition cylinders in these cars with cylinders which have higher torque specifications.

My 2012 CTS came with a separate key and fob--so I don't understand where the recall is going nor do I understand Kyle's assumptions.
