Recall Alert: 2010-11 Cadillac SRX


General Motors is recalling 20,000 model-year 2010 and 2011 Cadillac SRX SUVs for problems with the transmission shift cable. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, cables in the affected vehicles were improperly installed and may come out of the transmission bracket.
In these cases, owners may not be able to shift the vehicle out of gear. The shifter may also indicate that it’s in Park when it’s in another gear. Affected vehicles were built from Oct. 26, 2008, through June 23, 2011. You can find your vehicle's manufacture date on a label affixed to the driver's side doorjamb.

Owner notification will begin in January. GM dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts free of charge. For more info, owners can call Cadillac at 866-982-2339 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
