GM has issued a recall for an undetermined number of Cadillac CTS vehicles from the 2003-2007 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall is due to a defect in CTS vehicles currently registered or originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.

Some of these vehicles have a hose fitting at the caliper on the front brake that may corrode from exposure to snow or water containing road salt or other contaminants, which could get into the routing sleeve. If the fitting corrodes enough, the brake hose-tube interface may develop a leak, which could increase vehicle stopping distance and lead to an accident.

Dealers will replace both front brake hose assemblies for free. The recall is not expected to begin until May. Owners may contact Cadillac at 866-982-2339 or NHTSA’s hot line at 888-327-4236.
