DETROIT — General Motors is recalling 19,225 2013-'14 Cadillac CTS sedans for windshield-wiper failure, according to the automaker.
The recall is part of a larger GM recall of 2.7 million vehicles in the U.S. and nearly 3 million worldwide for a variety of problems. The recall was announced on Thursday.
The "windshield-wiper system may become inoperable after a vehicle jump-start with wipers active and restricted, such as by ice and snow," said GM in a statement regarding the CTS recall. "Potential lack of visibility could increase the risk of a crash."
GM said it is unaware of any crashes or injuries due to the problem.
A date has not been set for the CTS recall, according to GM spokesman Alan Adler in response to a query from Edmunds.
Cadillac dealers will replace the front wiper module. Owners can contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020.
Edmunds says: If the wipers on your 2013-'14 Cadillac CTS are inoperable, take the car into your dealer immediately. Others can wait for their official recall notice from the company.
