Around 67,000 Cadillac ATS sedans were recalled by General Motors (GM) because of their sensitive power sunroof switches do not correspond to government guidelines. The recalls are generally placed in North America. The vehicles concerned are equipped with power sunroofs that can close automatically even when the non-recessed are only marginally touched.
The problem was detected a month ago, when the carmaker was directing a routine test on a 2016 Cadillac ATS sedan. Fortunately, this is not a significant security issue and dealers will be able replace any flawed switch trim plates at no additional expense to car holders.
The car producer has not gotten any complaints from drivers. The auto company noted that it has no information or feedback regarding any accidents, deaths or injuries cause by this recently discovered issue.
The Detroit, Michigan-headquartered carmaker is under scrutiny by U.S. Congress, controllers and the U.S. Justice Department over issues linked to a flawed ignition switch, and has reviewed 2.6 million cars since February 2014 because of this problem. The issue is estimated to have prompted 57 casualties.
This most recent recall applies to autos from the 2013 through 2015 model years. Repairs were conducted at the manufacturing plant and dealers have been advised to quit offering autos on their parts until they issues are fixed. Around 12,200 unsold vehicles worldwide, incorporating 10,500 in the U.S., are included in the sale stop.
Prospective buyers who had their mind set on a Cadillac ATS sedan will have wait for now, because the cars will temporarily be unavailable for sale. Let’s hope the issue gets fixed at a speedy pace.
