    Recalls for 2012 Saab

    2012 SAAB 9-4X
    NHTSA Campaign ID:SUSPENSION:REAR
    Manufacturer:General Motors LLC
    Manufacture Dates:06/22/2011 - 09/13/2011
    Potential Units Affected:290241

    Defect Description:

    General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured April 14, 2009, to September 1, 2014, and 2011-2012 Saab 9-4X vehicles manufactured February 1, 2011, to September 13, 2011. On the affected vehicles, the jam nut in the rear suspension toe adjuster link may not be torqued to the proper specification. A loose toe adjuster link can cause the vehicle to sway or wander at highway speeds. A loose toe adjuster link may lead to thread damage and eventual failure. Failure of the toe adjuster link will cause an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment.

    Consequence:

    Failure of the toe adjuster link could cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Action:

    GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the torque of the left and right rear toe link adjuster lock nuts, and replace the parts if there is evidence of damage or a loose link, free of charge. The The recall began November 11, 2014. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006 or Saab customer service at 1-800-955-9007. GM's number for this recall is 14457.
