Not an overly luxurious car.

Care performs very well over the years I had it. No serious issues thus far. The interior is very enjoyable and the drive is very smooth.

- Kevin H

Great, smooth ride, great responsiveness. Very prestigious with great looks.

Great acceleration, rides like a dream and looks great. No major (or even minor) repairs in 2 1/2 years. Wife loves it.

- Vic c

Very roomy for family and leisure operation any time of the day

CT6, Great car. Rides nice, roomy, great performance. Performance is excellent. Comfortable, quick get up and go.

Report Receipt Date:
Sep 23, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:

Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016 Cadillac CT6 vehicles manufactured July 21, 2016, to July 22, 2016. The bolt that connects the front passenger seat belt webbing to the seat's anchor plate may be missing. Without the bolt, the seat belt webbing may detach from the seat anchor.
Consequence:
If the seat belt webbing detaches from the seat anchor, the seat belt may not properly restrain the front seat passenger in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the existing front passenger seat belt webbing anchor bolt, or install a bolt if it is missing, free of charge. The recall began on September 24, 2016. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 16035. Note: Owners are advised not to allow an occupant to sit in the front passenger seat until the recall remedy has been performed.
