Cadillac and Saab Vehicles to be Recalled

25 April 2006
Lemon Law information

After discovering several manufacturing errors and defects, federal regulators are directing the recall of thousands of Cadillac and Saab vehicles.

The pull out is necessary and urgent since the faulty assembly could be fatal to the passengers.

The Cadillac’s problem lies in its rear suspension. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the left or right toe link of the vehicle might split up because they were not properly welded. Once the toe link separates, one of the rear wheels could turn out. The driver would lose control of the car as a consequence.

Vendors of the popular luxury vehicle are required to check the toe links and change them when needed. They are also obliged to give a free wheel alignment if a toe link has been replaced.

The NHTSA order covers 23,077 SRX and STS series sedans made in 2005. The recall order will take effect next month.

While the Cadillac’s problem could lead to a fatal crash on the road, the consequences of the Saab defect may be felt or experienced at the gas stations.

The NHTSA discovered that the Saab’s 2001 9-3 passenger vehicle has a faulty fuel line. The agency also found out that the fittings are also damaged; 11,000 Saab cars are affected by the NHTSA directive.
