General Motors is recalling certain 2009 and 2010 model year Cadillac CTS models over potential handling fault. According to National Highway Transportation Safety Administration some of these vehicles have a condition in which a wax coating on the rear suspension toe link jam nuts may allow nut(s) to loosen.
If a nut loosens, the toe link could separate and the rear wheel would be able to turn inboard or outboard. GM says that owners may hear a metallic clanking noise coming from the rear of the vehicle that may warn of a loosening nut.
As a result the driver may experience sudden changes with vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash. In US 11,147 units are involved, while the total worldwide number is around 50,000 cars.
The notice covers around 50,000 units worldwide, 11,147 of which were sold in the States.
