General Motors recalling certain Cadillac models

 

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Washington, D.C. – General Motors is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Cadillac CTS vehicles. Some of these vehicles have a condition in which a wax coating on the rear suspension toe link jam nuts may allow the nut(s) to loosen.

If a nut sufficiently loosens, the toe link could separate and the rear wheel would be able to turn inboard or outboard. Owners may hear a metallic clanking noise coming from the rear of the vehicle that may warn of a loosening nut.
