I noticed over on the CTS-V forums people were talking about a new recall, and they were saying it also covered the STS-V. So I went ahead and checked it out. It's for the fuel pump module. The recall was just issued on Sep 4th, 2014. Figured I would bring it up to your guys attention.

Here is a link to the thread in the CTS-V world.

GM Recall #:
N140405

NHTSA Recall #:
Awaiting#

Date Issued:
Sep 04, 2014

Recall Title:

Fuel Pump Module

Recall Description:

General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2004-2007 model year (MY) Cadillac CTS-V and 2006-2007 MY Cadillac STS-V vehicles. In the subject vehicles, the fuel pump module electrical terminal may overheat and cause localized melting of the flange material near the overheated electrical terminal. The melted flange material could create a hole, or leak path, in the fuel pump allowing fuel to escape from the fuel pump module.

Safety Risk Description:

This condition may result in fuel leaking from the fuel pump to the ground, diagnostic leak codes set by evaporated fuel emissions, or intermittent engine performance that could include stalling, increasing the risk of a crash.

Repair Description:

Dealers will replace fuel module and fuel tank jumper harness, free of charge.
Recall Status: INCOMPLETE. Remedy not yet available.

Does this car cover vehicles out of warranty?
Yes, it should be covered out of warrany, free of charge.

Interesting. I don't know what's worse for my car, giving it to the dealer to work on or having this possibly defected module.
I am the same way. I am pretty skeptical about giving them my car. But a free new fuel pump at 110k sounds nice.

Recall status incomplete? Does that mean it's not ready for dealers to do it or you just haven't done it your self yet?

I have not done it yet. But the dealer still cant do it yet. They are still working on solving it.

Re: New recall effecting 2006-2007 STS-V issued, yesterday.

That's what happened to my 06 that I sold. You would be driving at 75 mph and the car would just stall that's fun. And after a week of doing it it caught fire.

Re: New recall effecting 2006-2007 STS-V issued, yesterday.

I'm really debating whether or not I should do it. What do y'all think?
