General Motors (GM) has recalled about 56,400 Cadillac SRX crossover vehicles from model year 2013 because of possible lags in acceleration caused by problems with the module that controls the transmission. The recall affects 2013 Cadillac SRX crossovers equipped with 3.6L engines that have an acceleration lag that can occur in lower speed and stop-and-go driving. The recall includes 50,591 vehicles in the United States, 3,306 in Canada, 367 in Mexico and 2,123 in other markets, according to General Motors.
“A three- to four-second lag in acceleration may increase the risk of crash,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a report released on May 1. Alan Adler, a representative for GM, said the transmission control module calibration in the vehicles may cause a three-to four-second lag in acceleration if a particular sequence of events occurs. While the lag could lead to an increased risk of crash, GM said it is unaware of any crashes or injuries due to this problem.
