Cadillac announced that it will be recalling more than 20,000 CTS and CTS-V models due to replace a glove compartment box that could lead to leg injuries to the passenger in a crash. GM states that recall involves nearly 5,000 all-wheel drive 2009 Cadillac CTS and CTS-V models, and more than 15,000 vehicles from the 2010 model year.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) concluded that passengers not wearing their seatbelt could strike the glove box door and suffer leg injuries in a crash. Dealers will replace the glove compartment assembly at no charge.
Owners can contact Cadillac directly or make an appointment at their local dealer to have the issue resolved.
