GM Recalls Certain Cadillac Vehicles for Rear Wheel Issues
UNITED STATES – According to a news article posted online at CARCOMPLAINTS.COM, auto manufacturer GM is recalling certain Cadillac vehicles because of reported issues with the rear wheels. Because of an issue with the axle roll pins, the rear wheels may be prone to locking up, which may lead to accidents and injuries.*
The recall affects close to 3,000 vehicles in the United States and Canada manufactured by GM. This includes:
- 2014 Cadillac CTS-V Sport
- 2015 Cadillac CTS-V Sport
Only about 110 of the recalled vehicles were sold in Canada, while the rest were sold in the United States. Both models of the CTS-V Sport have 3.6 liter twin turbo V6 engines. GM indicates that the axle roll pins, which have a single shear design, can fracture in the rear differentials and cause the rear wheels of the vehicle to lock up.
The issue came to GM’s attention in September 2019 through its Speak Up for Safety program. One of its engineers read an online report from a driver who stated that the back wheels on the 2015 CTS-V Sport locked. The driver’s account was reportedly of particular interest to the engineer because the engineer had experienced the same issue in his personal vehicle. The engineer submitted a report through Speak Up for Safety, and GM opened an investigation into the matter. The manufacturer then decided to issue the recall.
The recall should begin in early March, and affected vehicle owners will be notified. Repairs will include replacement of the roll pins with roll pins that have a double shear design. Owners will be able to arrange for the repairs at local dealerships.
Vehicle owners with questions about this recall can call (800) 333-4223. The reference number for the recall is N192279370.
