    CTS Recall

    GM Has Recalled the 2003 Cadillac CTS
    (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the following information.


    Make : CADILLAC Model : CTS Year : 2003

    NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 03V115000

    Component: STEERING

    Potential Number Of Units Affected : 47835

    Summary:
    SOME PASSENGER VEHICLES HAVE A CONDITION IN WHICH THE INTERMEDIATE STEERING SHAFT BOLT MAY BE LOOSE.

    Consequence:
    AN IMPROPERLY TIGHTENED BOLT COULD LOOSEN, RESULTING IN SEPARATION OF THE UPPER AND LOWER STEERING SHAFTS CAUSING A LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL. IF THIS HAPPENS WHILE THE VEHICLE IS MOVING, A CRASH COULD RESULT WITHOUT PRIOR WARNING.

    Remedy:
    DEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR THE PRESENCE OF THE INTERMEDIATE STEERING SHAFT BOLT AND ENSURE THAT IT IS TIGHTENED TO THE PROPER SPECIFICATION. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN MARCH 20, 2003. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT CADILLAC AT 1-800-458-8006.

    Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls
    Frequently SafetyAlerts will list auto recalls before
    your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
    affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
    write down the NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number.
    If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
    check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
    when the next update is due.

    Did you know?
    During 2001 there were over
    1575 products recalled in the United
    States for safety reasons!

    GM has had problems with the ISS since like 1997 with several models and brands. I dont know about this bolt issue, but many suffer from an improperly lubricated ISS which can lead to separation, rattling and clunking on turns (what mine had) and other annoyances or accidents. They need to step up and replace the component not just "lubricate" it. Typical north american vehicle issues.
