The 2010 Cadillac SRX will be recalled for repairs to its steering system.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the SRX recall will affect 3,459 of the crossovers. The affected vehicles include those fitted with either the base 2.8-liter V-6 or the optional 3.0-liter V-6.
In affected vehicles, a power-steering pressure line may have been damaged during crimping. The flaw could cause a power-steering fluid leak, which could in turn lead to noise and higher steering effort. In the worst-case scenario, the fluid could spray on the SRX's engine, leading to a fire.
The NHTSA says Cadillac and General Motors have not yet confirmed a schedule for repairs. Owners can contact the automaker at 866-982-2339, and can see more on the recall at the safety agency's Web site.
