General Motors Company is recalling around 20,000 models of Cadillac SRX crossover vehicles in United States and China. The company is recalling the crossovers mainly due to potential transmission defects.
Shanghai GM, a joint venture between GM and SAIC Motor Corp., is recalling 9,862 models of the compact SUVs in China, while General Motors is all set to recall 8,789 models of Cadillac SRX in the United States. According to GM’s spokesperson, a small number of SUVs in 20 other countries are also affected. The recalled vehicles are 2010 and 2011 year models. These affected vehicles were built at GM’s Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
GM wrote a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration saying that it received a letter from a 2011 SRX customer in June alleging unintended vehicle motion while the customer was trying to shift between park and drive and then back to park. The customer reported that he had to stop the crossover with the service brake and then set the parking brake. In the letter to NHTSA, GM also said that it discovered that some transmission shift cables were not appropriately routed in the vehicle’s engine bay. A deep investigation was done by the automakers to find potential claims dating back to the 2010 fall.
The spokesperson of the GM said that there have been no reports of accidents or injuries in any of the country affected by the recall. Apart from this, GM declared on Wednesday that it is recalling 3,150 Chevrolet Captiva crossovers due to potential power steering overheating issue, which can lead to catching of fire in the engine’s bay. The models affected are of 2011 year and 2012 year. Also, these models were built at the Ramos Arizpe plant.
