General Motors is recalling 2013-model year Cadillac SRX crossovers after a programming fault in the vehicle was discovered, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced today
The Problem: According to an NHTSA filing, there may be a three to four second lag in acceleration due to the transmission control module programming. This may increase the risk of an accident, as throttle response could potentially be affected.
Number of affected vehicles: About 56,400 models are affected. 50,591 of the SRX crossovers involved in the recall are in the United States, while 3,306 are in Canada, 367 in Mexico and 2,123 in other markets.
The Solution: Owners are asked to bring their cars to a local GM dealership to have the transmission control modules reprogrammed.
Contacts: Owners may call Cadillac with further questions at 1-800-458-8006.
