2013 Cadillac SRX Recall Issued
General Motors is recalling certain 2013 Cadillac SRX models because of a problem that may hurt vehicle acceleration. All in all, about 50,590 SRX luxury crossovers for the U.S. market are affected by the Cadillac recall. The recalled models were built between May 29, 2012 and June 26, 2013, and all are equipped with 3.6-liter engines. In these vehicles, a problem with the transmission control module programming may cause a three to four second lag in acceleration during certain driving situations. This issue can increase the risk of a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, no crashes related to the issue have been reported. GM has not yet mentioned when the Cadillac SRX recall will begin. The automaker will notify owners, and customers will be able to bring their recalled cars into dealerships nationwide. The repair, which will be conducted free of charge, involves reprogramming the transmission control module.
