Fact: recalls aren’t fun. Unfortunately, they must be dealt with on a semi-regular basis. To that end, General Motors has issued a recall notice for 20,224 units of 2009-2010 all-wheel drive Cadillac CTS and CTS-V models due to lack of compliance with a federal motor vehicle safety standard that could lead to a possible issue with the front passenger-side knee airbag.
According to the NHTSA, a crash wherein the front passenger is not buckled could result in that passenger’s knees being hit. To fix the issue, Cadillac has instructed dealers to replace the glove box assembly and – if applicable – modify the instrument panel structure. The recall is scheduled to begging on or before October 20th and – as is standard practice during recalls -these services are free of charge.
