Yesterday we discussed about the recalls that had taken place throughout 2010, but it seems that there is one more being issued before the year is out. GM has issued a recall on 100,000 Cadillac models from 2005 to 2007 because of a problem with the airbags, as there are cases where they have not deployed.
That is not all, in some General Motors truck models the rear axels could lock, this could result in a crash. This is a huge blow for the Detroit automaker, as this recall could stick with them due to the fact of this being one of, if not the last of the year. So what models are affected by this recall?
We have 96,000 2005 – 2007 Cadillac CTS, 1,262 2011 trucks amongst others, which Daily Finance has discussed in more detail. Owners of affected vehicles will be notified next month, for more details contact your local dealer.
WSJ has gone into more detail about the recall involving the airbag, saying that it is an issue with the sensing mat. In some cases the mat could bend, which could result in the sensor not detecting a passenger in the seat. If this is the case then the airbag will not deploy in a crash. This is not as bad as the Toyota recall with the brake issue, but it is still worrying — just remember to take extra care while driving over the holiday season.
