If you’ve recently purchased a 2014 Cadillac ELR, you’ll want to read on. GM has announced the recall of about 656 2014 ELR models produced between September 26, 2013 and February 14, 2014 due to a fault with its electronic stability control system (ESC). The 2014 Cadillac ELR recall is announced in an effort to make sure drivers have the safest possible driving experience, and although the issue as of now is quite minor, the Cadillac brand, as well as all of us here at Rippy Cadillac, want only the best and safest driving experience for our customers.
2014 ELR models without adaptive cruise control may have diagnostics that can prevent the system from telling the driver if the electronic stability control system is on or off. This seems to be fairly minor for the time being, as no accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the defect.
Alan Adler, GM’s recall and legal spokesperson says that only about 55 affected cars are currently owned by individuals. The remaining cars are still on dealership lots or at the factory. Even so, Cadillac already has a software fix, and is prepared to repair effected cars beginning April 17th. The 2014 Cadillac ELR recall update should only take about 20 minutes and will recalibrate the electronic brake control module.
