GM Recall 67,000 Cadillac ATS Sedans

GM Recall 67,000 Cadillac ATS Sedans

 

The Problem: The ATS’ power roof panel system will automatically close when the nonrecessed portion of the “slide” or “tilt” switch is pressed and the roof panel is open; because these switches are not fully recessed they can be activated with less force than required by federal rules. GM is unaware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the roof console accessory switch trim plate free of charge.

 

The recall affects about 67,000 ATS models from 2013–2015 in the U.S. and Canada, according to the Detroit News (the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet posted the recall, so U.S.-specific recall numbers are forthcoming). The sensitive sunroof switch solution? Dealers will install new console switch trim plates. For as trivial as switch pressure noncompliance might sound, the issue marks the fifth recall for the ATS since its 2012 debut.

The automaker is not aware of any accidents or injuries in connection with the issue. GM has put a stop-sale in force for the model, and repairs were implemented into production.

The recall, which includes sedans from model years 2013 to 2015, will involve dealers replacing a switch trim plate in affected vehicles.

GM is not aware of any injuries, deaths, or crashes in connection with the sunroof problem, and has not received any complaints from owners. The issue was discovered last month, when GM was routinely testing a 2016 Cadillac ATS sedan, and dealers will replace any faulty switch trim plates at no extra cost to owners.

No official date has yet been confirmed for the commencement of the recall, though GM stated that all affected drivers would be notified personally. Where present, the defective controls will be rehoused using a modified trim plate which according to the automaker will prevent the sunroof from being activated or closed accidentally.
