Automotive Recalls. The 2013 Cadillac XTS Has Restraining Issues.
Published November 18, 2012
In recent automotive news GM has issued an automotive recall on one of their newest vehicles the 2013 Cadillac XTS. As far as recalls have been concerned, GM has been able to keep their noses clean, but it seems that the recall bug has bitten a car in their fleet of excellence.
The 2013 Cadillac XTS automotive recall involves a particular part, or section of the safety restraint system. As it was explained in the official report to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration) that the rear seat head restraints may potentially fail if the head rests had been recently folded in the forward position. In other words, after folding the rear head rest forward, and then when you need to move it back where it belongs, the head restraint just may fail if you were to get into an accident. At best this does sound a little confusing, but it would be better understood by the owners of this car.
It is speculated, but not yet proven that the failure of this restraint may cause, or increase the risk of head, and or neck injury during a crash. This automotive recall is only affecting certain models that were built during the time period between October 12th, 20111 through August 30th, 2012.
As it stands now, the recall only affect this part, or portion of the 2013 Cadillac XTS. None of the major functions that the safety system normally performs are, or will be affected. General Motors has assured that drivers of the affect model car, can come into their local Cadillac, or General Motors dealership, and have the head restraint replaced free of charge. GM wants this recall to be resolved as quickly as possible, and being that this recall started on the 15th of this month, they are aiming to have this completely finalized before the end of the year. For more information about this automotive recall, be sure to either call your local GM, or Cadillac dealerships, or get in contact with the NHTSA for more details. Thanks for reading, and be safe.
