Summary:
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2013 Cadillac XTS vehicles manufactured from October 12, 2011, through August 30, 2012, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 202, "Head Restraints." The rear seat head restraints may not lock in the upright position after being folded forward. If the head restriant is at its lowest position and it falls forward, it will not meet the height required by the standard.
Consequence:
In the event of a vehicle crash, the lowered head restraint may increase the occupant's risk of neck injury.
Remedy:
General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will replace the head restraints, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on November 12, 2012. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-458-8006.
Notes:
This is General Motors' recall number 12258. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
