Cadillac Recalls 2013 SRX - Potential for Wheels to Fall Off

On May 15, 2013 General Motors informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that they are recalling the 2013 Cadillac SRX. The defect, present in 2013 Cadillac SRX vehicles with 18-inch wheels, arises from the loosening of wheel lug nuts. If this problem goes unnoticed or is ignored, one or more of the lug nuts could detach, which can cause the wheels to fall off.

General Motors first noticed the problem after some lug nuts came loose on vehicles in the SRX test fleet. Although General Motors stated that the problem has not caused any crashes or injuries, they have still decided to recall almost 19,000 SRXs in the United States.

According to General Motors, if an owner has this problem, they will hear a rattling noise or feel vibrations originating from the wheel area. In order to cure this problem, GM will require dealerships to rotate the wheels and replace the lug nuts. Despite this, neither GM nor NHTSA have explained what actions the dealer should take if the wheels were loose long enough to cause more permanent damage to the vehicle. GM will officially inform Cadillac SRX owners of the recall on June 3.

If you or someone you know have been injured as a result of a defective vehicle, contact the attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend by calling 713-396-3964 or 1-800-594-4884.
