GM Recalls 51,000 2003 Cadillac CTS CarsMar 21, 2003 | AP General Motors Corp. on Friday announced a recall of about 51,000 model year 2003 Cadillac CTS cars to inspect the steering shaft for a loose bolt.
The world's No. 1 automaker said it was aware of two incidents where drivers lost steering control due to a loose bolt, but there were no reported injuries from either incident.
The problem can be fixed by merely tightening the bolt, GM said.
GM said it began mailing notices about the recall to owners on Thursday. If owners are concerned about driving to a Cadillac dealer, they can call the dealers to request assistance.
Dealers will inspect the vehicles to see whether the steering shaft bolt is under-tightened. If necessary, the dealer will tighten the bolt at no cost.
Of the total, about 48,000 of the vehicles are in the United States and about 3,000 are in Canada. The vehicles were built between October 2001 and Feb
