Approximately 34,000 model-year 2020-22 Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans are being recalled due to airbag issues. The roof-rail side curtain airbags may not have been installed correctly, which could cause an improper airbag deployment in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Cadillac parent company GM will begin notifying owners on Sept. 20. Owners can call Cadillac at 800-458-8006 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.

To remedy the issue, dealers will inspect both the left and right side roof-rail airbags and reinstall them, as necessary.

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.
