GM is recalling 10,005 2004 – 2007 Cadillac CTS-V and 2006 – 2007 Cadillac STS-V sedans in the United States. On certain vehicles, the fuel pump module electrical terminal may overheat, causing melting of the flange material. GM dealers will replace the fuel module and fuel tank jumper harness. GM knows of no crashes, injuries or fatalities related to the condition.
This recall was prompted by a “Speak Up for Safety Report” from a company employee in June that reported a CTS-V with 130,000 miles was leaking fuel. GM’s investigation found new contacts built with copper and flexible wires were installed in CTS-V and STS-V cars built after March 15, 2007.
