Approximately 380,500 model-year 2010-16 Cadillac SRX SUVs and model-year 2011-12 Saab 9-4X SUVs are being recalled due to suspension issues. The rear suspension toe link adjuster may not have been tightened properly and could result in a loose toe link which could separate, causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
GM will begin notifying owners on Aug. 9. Owners can call Cadillac at 800-458-8006, Saab at 800-955-9007, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the adjustable toe link with a non-adjustable one. Owners are advised to stop and further avoid driving their vehicle if they experience malfunction indicator lamp warnings or unusual steering behavior.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
