Recalls issued for Cadillac CTS and Honda Accord V-6 vehicles

Article by Christian A., on December 24, 2010

A recall has been issued for General Motors Co.’s Cadillac CTS cars for the model years 2005 to 2007. A notice posted on U.S. safety regulators' Web site indicated that a mat that senses car passengers in the front seat might break and disable the front air bag.

GM said that the mat in the front seat may "kink, bend or fold” because of the repeated "flexing" of the passenger sensing system mat in the front seat.

There’s a risk that the connections in the bag will break, making the sensor incapable of detecting the front passenger.

When this happens, the air bag is disabled. GM would have to replace these mats. GM is recalling 95,927 cars -- 46,070 cars from the 2006 model year and 33,138 from the 2007 model year.

In a separate matter, Honda Motor Co. has also announced the recall of 10,823 Accord V-6 vehicles for the 2010 and 2011 model year and its 2011 Pilot vehicles.

In a notice, Honda explained that due to a programming error, the damper brackets in 2011 Pilots may not have been tightened during assembly.

Because of the loose belts, there is an increased risk of steering loss and it also results to excessive noise. In addition, the spindle nuts of 2011 Pilot and certain Accord V-6 vehicles may also be loose, a flaw that can result to steering loss if the front suspension collapses.
