2010 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan

A 2010 CTS-V sedan.

Do you own a 2009 or 2010 Cadillac CTS with AWD? How about a 2009 – 2010 CTS-V (you lucky bastard)? If you answered yes, expect to hear from Cadillac in the very near future, as your car may not meet federal safety standards for occupant crash protection.

The NHTSA website doesn’t give specifics, but Cars.com claims that “unbelted small adults, less than 5 feet tall and 110 pounds” may be at greater risk of knee injury than is permitted by federal safety regulations. Dealers will replace the glove box assembly and modify the instrument panel structure as required when the recall begins in mid-October. In the mean time, just make sure that all your front seat passengers buckle up, every single time.

Some 20,224 CTS sedans will be effected by this recall, which does not include CTS Coupe models. Customers with questions or concerns can reach Cadillac’s customer service at (866) 982-2339.

We have federal regulations for small people who are too stupid to wear a seatbelt? Really? I love our Government. This is about as ridiculous as it comes. What’s next, recalling cigarettes because they’re 7% more likely to kill you than this new brand? I mean, really. This is such a dumb move. If they were to recall them because a belted small occupant would become injured, that’s one thing. But this? This is just a waste of money.

    Just one of the many reasons that people in the EU shake their head at our legislators and legal system.

    Besides, 97.849% of the U.S. population refuses to accept any responsibility for their actions, which is why 100% of the companies that do business in the U.S. are terrified of product liability lawsuits.
