Editor's Overview

The 2015 XTS is Cadillac’s flagship luxury sedan and as such it must be opulent enough to appease the Cadillac faithful, yet sophisticated enough to lure younger buyers from Mercedes-Benz and Lexus. With ride and handling somewhere between the Lexus GS and Audi A6, the XTS should have wide appeal, providing its complex infotainment system doesn’t scare away prospective buyers.

Air Bags Oct 16, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 16, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V666000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015 Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Camaro, Equinox, Malibu, and GMC Terrain vehicles. The affected vehicles have front seat-mounted side impact air bags whose inflator may rupture upon its deployment.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of one or both of the side impact air bags, the air bag's inflator may rupture and the air bag may not properly inflate. The rupture could cause metal fragments to strike the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death. Additionally, if the air bag does not properly inflate, the driver or passenger is at an increased risk of injury.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side impact air bag modules, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 19, 2015. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 01320.
Recall Sep 9, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 9, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V541000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Cadillac XTS vehicles manufactured February 14, 2012, to August 22, 2014, and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured November 5, 2012, to September 2, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the electronic parking brake piston actuation arm may not fully retract causing the brake pads to stay partially engaged.
Consequence:
Brake pads that remain partially engaged with the rotors may cause excessive brake heat that may result in a fire.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the electronic parking brake software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2014. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14471.
