A rear suspension issue has prompted a recall for the many owners of Cadillac’s SRX SUV as well as the handful of owners who purchased a Saab 9-4X before the Swedish brand filed for bankruptcy and parent automaker GM sold it off in 2010. The recall affects some 380,500 vehicles.

Specifically, model-year 2010-16 SRX and model-year 2011-12 9-4X SUVs are affected. At risk is the rear suspension toe link adjuster, which may not have been tightened properly and could result in a loose toe link. A loose toe link can separate and cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the adjustable toe link with a nonadjustable one for free. However, owners are advised to stop and further avoid driving their vehicle if they experience certain malfunction indicator lamp warnings or other issues, such as unusual steering behavior; see here for a full list of warnings.
GM will begin notifying owners Aug. 9, but those with further questions can call Cadillac at 800-458-8006, Saab at 800-955-9007 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
