2003-2007 Cadillac CTS recalled in cold weather states over possible brake issue

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced the recall of 2003 through 2007 model year Cadillac CTS sedans for a brake issue that may lead to longer stop times and the increased risk of a crash. Recalled models reside in 21 cold weather states north of the Mason Dixon Line. NHTSA says snow and road salt could cause a front brake hose fitting at the caliper to corrode, with contaminants entering the routing sleeve. Significant corrosion could then result in a brake hose-tube interface that may develop a leak. That sounds bad because it is, but a fix is just a dealer visit away.

Owners of affected CTS models can take their vehicle to the nearest General Motors dealership to have both front brake hose assemblies replaced free of charge. Hit the jump to read the NHTSA press release, which includes all 21 states involved in the recall.

No big deal, according to reg, no CTSs were sold in these states because people in the north dont want RWD.

yeah which is why they added the AWD for 2008. they even add AWD on front based cars, so that ought to tell you right there that people want it. BMW, Mercedes, everyone added it because buyers want it.

Most of the new BMW's and Merc's I see around here are AWD versions, and most of the newer CTS i see are the CTS4's.

that's what the market wants.
