cadillac srx recalled over power steering lines

General Motors has just announced a safety recall of 3,996 2010 Cadillac SRX crossovers due to possible damage that may have occurred to the power steering lines. Out of the 3,996 vehicles that have been recalled, GM only believes that only two or three are actually affected by this issue. If the power steering line has been damaged, the steering fluid could leak, potentially spraying onto hot engine parts where an engine compartment fire could result. As of now, GM is aware of only one such fire in an SRX.

Vehicles that are being recall were built in December 2009 and most of these affected vehicles are in the United States. Owners will be notified by mail and the inspection and any necessary repair will be performed free of charge.

    I currently have a 2007 SRX that I had to replace the power steering lines. These vehicles are not made with the proper parts and GM has been known to use less expensive parts to cut costs. They in-turn pass the costs onto consumers. I have called GM and filed a complaint, and they are refusing to do anything about it. I really wish that someone would acknowledge the problem before someone is seriously hurt or even killed.
