Cadillac SRX, Buick Lacrosse, Recalled Over Defroster Defect

General Motors is recalling 10,179 Buick Lacrosse sedans and Cadillac SRX crossovers due to a fault defroster. The problem is actually a software glitch rather than a physical defect, but one that prevents the unit from properly clearing the windshield.

Should the windshield fail to be clear, visibility problems could arise and result in a crash. While GM claims that they haven’t heard of any accidents or injuries related to the issue, they will fix the problem free of charge. Only a third of the affected vehicles are said to be in customers hands, and the majority (around 8,000) are said to be SRXs.
