GM and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have issued a recall for certain 2022 model-year Cadillac XT5, Cadillac XT6 and GMC Acadia crossovers over an issue related to the rear toe links.
The problem: affected vehicles may have a left-rear suspension toe link with a fastener that was not properly tightened during assembly at the factory. The GMC Acadia is built at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee, but will soon be moved to the GM Lansing Grand River plant to make room for the Cadillac Lyriq. The Cadillac XT5 and XT6 are also built at Spring Hill and will remain there for the foreseeable future.
The hazards: a loose left-rear suspension toe link fastener may cause the toe links to become separated, resulting in misalignment of the left-rear wheel, increasing the risk of a crash.
The fix: dealer technicians will be instructed to inspect the left-rear suspension toe link and replace the subject fastener if it is loose or missing. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
Affected components: left-rear suspension toe links, rear toe link fasteners.
Number of affected vehicles: neither GM nor NHTSA have said how many vehicles are affected by this particular problem. Involved vehicles must be held and cannot be delivered, dealer traded or used for demo drives until these recall repairs have been performed.
Owners should: GM will notify owners of affected vehicles and instruct them to make an appointment with their dealer.
