2010 Cadillac SRX POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION NHTSA Campaign #11V595000
Summary: General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Cadillac Srx vehicles manufactured from October 26, 2008, through June 23, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 114, ¿theft protection.¿ these vehicles may have a transmission shift cable that was improperly installed and may come out of the transmission bracket.
Consequence: The driver may be unable to shift the transmission out of gear, resulting in no motion or the shifter may inaccurately indicate that the transmission is in park when it is not, allowing the vehicle to roll away and cause a possible crash.
Actions: GM will notify owners, and dealers will ensure that the transmission shift cable is properly routed and seated in the transmission cable bracket. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2012. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339.

2010 Cadillac SRX STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST:POWER STEERING FLUID NHTSA Campaign #10V450000
Summary: General Motors is recalling certain model year 2010 Cadillac Srx vehicles equipped with 2.8L gas engines (lau) or 3.0L gas engines (LF1). Some of these vehicles have a condition in which processing of the crimp during manufacture of the power steering pressure line may have damaged the line. If the line was damaged, a power steering fluid leak may develop. If there is a sufficient amount of fluid loss, the driver will hear noise from the power steering pump and increased effort may be required for steering.
Consequence: If power steering fluid sprays onto hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could occur.
Actions: Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the power steering line free of charge. The safety recall began on November 12, 2010. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #10V450000 »
2010 Cadillac SRX ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING NHTSA Campaign #10V223000
Summary: General Motors is recalling certain model year 2010 Cadillac Srx equipped with a 2.8L V6 engine. If low octane (regular) fuel is used in the vehicle instead of the required high octane (premium) fuel as stated in the owner manual and on the fuel filler door, the combination of regular fuel usage and aggressive driving maneuvers may induce pre-ignition. If pre-ignition occurs, you may hear a pinging or knocking sound from the engine.
Consequence: If the vehicle continues to be driven after the onset of this noise, a connecting rod or piston may break, resulting in engine damage, and perhaps engine failure, which would disable the vehicle increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will reprogram the engine control module free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before June 11, 2010. Owners may contact the Cadillac customer assistance center at 1-866-982-2339 or at the owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.
