Recall: 2003-2007 Cadillac CTS

Cadillac’s best-selling car, the CTS, has been a hot seller for years now, helping the Escalade to keep the company afloat.  Recently, GM informed the NHTSA of a recall it was beginning to run, for the brakes on the 2003-2007 CTS.  In colder areas of the US, exposure to road salt can break down the rubber brake lines closest to the wheels of the car, causing fluid leak, longer braking times, and increased risk of a crash.

From the recall notice, it seems that the road salt used to melt snow is the main cause of the deterioration.   Dealers will being replacing both front brake hoses free of charge, starting in May.  The list of affected states is as follows: 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 AND Wisconsin.
