GM tells its dealers to stop delivery of 2014 Cadillac CTS sedans

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 21, 2014

Things are not working quite well for General Motors as the American carmaker recalled millions of vehicles in order to fix a defective ignition switch. And the bad news continue to come because General Motors has just told its dealers to halt sales of some Cadillac models, most used cars.

The reason is that the company doesn’t yet have a fix in place for the defective ignition switch. GM issued an urgent order on July 8 when it stopped delivery of 2014 Cadillac CTS sedans fitted with a standard key ignition. The models using the new push-button start system have no problem.

In the notice that became public after NHTSA posted the document as part of its continuing investigation of GM vehicle recalls, the American company also told its dealers not to sell 2003-2013 CTS models but also 2004-2006 Cadillac SRX models.

If you have been living under a rock, you’d better know that General Motors recalled 8.45 million vehicle at the end of June and the total number of the vehicle recalled is a whooping 25.7 million. This means that GM holds a negative record, overtaking Ford’s 23.3 million recall in 2001.

The United States has currently 64.6 million cars and trucks on the roads, which means that General Motors is recalling 40 percent of the vehicles. According to the July 16 letter to NHTSA, only 258 Cadillacs from the 2014MY are affected by the stop-delivery order.
