WASHINGTON - General Motors Corp. is recalling nearly 96,000 MY 2005-2007 Cadillac CTS vehicles because of a potential airbag problem.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some of these vehicles have a condition in which repeated flexing of the passenger sensing system mat in the front passenger seat may cause the mat to kink, bend or fold. This flexing can break the connections in the mat. If this occurs, the sensor may not detect the presence of a front-seat passenger and will disable the airbag. This poses a passenger safety risk in the event of a crash.
Dealers will replace the passenger sensing system free of charge. Vehicle owners can reach Cadillac at (866) 982-2339.
