Cadillac recalls all 2003-2007 CTS models from cold weather states over brake problem


It seems owning a car in a cold weather state in the US is proving to be quite hazardous to the safety of the vehicle. We’ve seen quite a few recalls issued for northern states for various models, and now Cadillac is joining the fray, by calling back all 2003-2007 CTS models, due to a brake problem.

Once again, the road salt used in clearing up snow is to blame, as it can infiltrate the front brake hose, eventually leading to a leak. This in turn results in longer stopping times and lengths, which, as you can imagine, isn’t very good when driving a car.

In case you live or purchased a car in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington D.C., West Virginia or Wisconsin, you need to get your CTS to your local dealerships ASAP.

Owners will be notified in May, and you may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339.

    At least when Toyota do a recall they do it properly; cold weather states only – it must be an early April Fools day joke.
