GM has issued a service bulletin to fix a potential split in an outer body panel for the 2023 Cadillac XT6.
The problem: some units of the 2023 Cadillac XT6 may have a split in the outer body panel above the left-hand rear window.
The hazards: if the body panel were to be cracked, it could compromise the appearance of the vehicle.
The fix: certified GM technicians will be instructed to inspect the quarter panel metal and, if necessary, remove the glass, weld the area, and paint over it.

The inspection should take a few minutes, while the repair process could take roughly 10 hours.

The 2023 Cadillac XT6 received a few minor changes compared to the 2022 model, including the deletion of three paint colors and the addition of three new hues, while heated second-row seats, ventilated front seats, embedded navigation and the Bose Performance Series 14-speaker sound system are now fitted as standard on the Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels.
As a reminder, the Cadillac XT6 is offered with two powerplant options, including the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine and the atmospheric 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine. Both engines are mated to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission, with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive available.
