Cadillac Recall 03050: GM/FMVSS 207/Front Bucket Seat Attachments

2004 Cadillac CTS

In some crash conditions, the seat could pivot rearward and its occupant or a rear seat occupant could be injured more severely.

Seats

Summary
Certain passenger and sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 207, "seating systems." One or both front anchor tabs for the front bucket seats are not engaged in the floor pan reinforcement slots. A seat with only one tab engaged or neither engaged would not meet the static rearward loading test requirements of the standard.
Actions
Dealers will ensure that both front anchor tabs are fully seated in the floor pan reinforcement slots. Owner notification began September 19, 2003. Owners should contact GM at 1-800-458-8006.
