We are just about to enter the second week of October and already we have learned of two auto recalls involving the Tesla Roadster and BMW models. There is now a third recall to add too that list, the 2010 Cadillac SRX crossover from (GM).
The reason behind the recall is due to an issue with the power steering, which in certain cases could become a potential fire risk. 3.996 of these vehicles from General Motors are to be recalled, 341 of which are in China, the rest in the U.S.

Thankfully there are no reports of accidents or injuries, but this is a serious issue so no chances can be taken. According to a report from Reuters, if the fluid from the power steering system leaks onto parts of the engine that are hot, then you do not need to be a mechanic to know that a fire could occur.
You have to admire how fast GM has reacted to this issue; it has taken just 2 months from an investigation to recall.
