GM recalls 3,966 Cadillac SRX crossovers

2011 Cadillac SRX

General Motors announced today that it is conducting a voluntary safety recall on 3,966 Cadillac SRX crossovers from the 2010 model year for a possible damage to the power steering line. However, GM points that the issue is believed to exist on only two or three of the recalled vehicles.

“If the line is damaged, power steering fluid could leak, and if the fluid sprays onto hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could result,” GM said in a statement. “GM is aware of one such fire in an unattended SRX related to this condition. There have been no related crashes or injuries.”

The SRX units being recalled were built in December 2009 and the majority of those affected are in the United States. 341 were exported to China. GM said that it will notify owners by mail and if necessary, the repair will be performed free of charge.
