GM Recalls 2003 Cadillac CTS - GM Press Release

Automaker Will Inspect Suspected Steering Shaft Condition

DETROIT - General Motors is recalling about 51,000 model year 2003 Cadillac CTS cars to inspect the steering shaft for a loose bolt. GM is aware of two incidents where customers lost steering control due to the condition. There were no reported injuries in either incident. The condition can be fixed by merely tightening the bolt.

Of the total, about 48,000 of the vehicles are in the U.S. and approximately 3,000 are in Canada. The vehicles were built between October 2001 and February 2, 2003.

GM is informing customers to drive their vehicles to the dealers for inspection and, if necessary, repair. If customers are concerned about driving their vehicles, they can call their dealers to request assistance. Cadillac dealers will inspect the vehicles to see if the steering shaft bolt is under-tightened. If necessary, the dealer will tighten the bolt to the proper specification. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the customers.

General Motors, the world's largest vehicle manufacturer, designs, builds and markets cars and trucks worldwide, and has been the global automotive sales leader since 1931. More information on GM can be found at
