General Motors has issued a recall for 2009 and 2010 models of the Cadillac CTS and Cadillac CTS-V. According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, those vehicles fail "to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208, 'Occupant Crash Protection'." As a result, riders in the front passenger seat "may be at increased risk of leg injury".

Although the details of the problem aren't fully spelled out, the NHTSA bulletin lists the air bags and knee bolster as the faulty components. To remedy the situation, GM says that dealers will "replace the glove compartment assembly and, in some vehicles modify the instrument panel structure." Some 20,224 vehicles are affected by the recall.

GM expects to begin making repairs around October 20. If you have questions in the meantime, contact your dealer, or ring up Cadillac directly at 866-982-2339. You can also call the NHTSA hotline at 888-327-4236 and reference recall #10V414000.
