General Motors and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have issued a Product Safety Recall for certain 2022 model-year Cadillac XT6 luxury crossovers that were shipped with missing brake fluid reservoir cap warning labels, making them non-compliant with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
The problem: affected Cadillac XT6 vehicles may not have been fitted with a brake fluid reservoir cap warning label from the factory. The Cadillac XT6 is produced exclusively at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee.
The hazards: vehicles without a brake fluid reservoir cap warning label do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards relating to light-duty passenger vehicle braking systems. NHTSA says a missing brake fluid reservoir warning label can also increase the chances that the brake system will become unintentionally contaminated with debris, which can impact brake performance and increase the risk of a crash.
The fix: GM dealer technicians will be instructed to inspect the brake fluid reservoir cap and replace it if necessary. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
