Cadillac recalls 2010 SRX crossovers over engine problems


Cadillac has officially issued a recall for specific versions of its 2010 SRX crossover over a potential problem with the engine when it is fueled with a mixture of less than the required 91 octane rating.

547 vehicles are affected by this problem, all powered by the 2.8-liter V6 engine. It seems that when people fill up the tank with non-premium fuel, the engine cannot regulate its function, leading to the possibility of pre-ignition. This, in case you didn’t know, may result in damaged pistons or other internal components of the engine.

Owners of the affected 2010 Cadillac SRX crossovers will be notified as soon as possible by the carmaker. They will need to go to the nearest dealership to get the engine control modules fixed. For more details, you can contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339.
