China: Cadillac Recalling SUVs to Fix Wheel Nuts

May 21, 2013

China’s product safety agency says General Motors Co.’s main Chinese joint venture is recalling Cadillac SUVs to correct a problem with nuts that hold their wheels in place.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said Friday that Shanghai GM will recall 2,653 imported Cadillac SRXs.

The agency said torque might cause nuts on the wheels to loosen. It said the nuts will be adjusted and tightened.

It was not immediately clear if the problem was limited only to such models in China.

The incident is the second recall of vehicles by a global automaker in China in two months after Volkswagen AG said in March it needed to fix gearboxes on 384,000 vehicles.
