General Motors will recall around 380,000 older SUVs to address faulty rear suspension components that could affect high-speed stability.
The recall covers 2010 through 2016 Cadillac SRX SUVs and around 800 2011 and 2012 Saab 9-4x models, all of which were built at a GM plant in Mexico. The 9-4x was designed by defunct automaker Saab when it was owned by GM, which later assembled 800 or so SUVs under contract for Dutch supercar builder Spyker.
Both SUVs are closely related under the skin and share adjustable rear toe links affected by the recall. The toe links can loosen over time, which creates a wandering sensation at higher speeds. GM says that a warning light may illuminate in some cases, or a message may display in the instrument cluster. Both front- and all-wheel-drive models are covered by the recall.
This GM recall is the second for the affected SUVs. This time, rather than instructing dealers and shops authorized to perform Saab recalls, the automaker will send out new, non-adjustable rear toe links.
The recall will be performed free of charge to affected SRX and 9-4x SUVs. GM will begin alerting owners via mail starting in mid-August. See the Cadillac SRX models for sale and See the Saab 9-4x models for sale
