WASHINGTON — General Motors is recalling 12,626 2013 Cadillac XTS vehicles because of a problem with the rear seat head restraints, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The rear seat head restraints may not lock in the upright position after being folded forward," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the head restraint is at its lowest position and it falls forward, it will not meet the height required by the standard.

"In the event of a vehicle crash, the lowered head restraint may increase the occupant's risk of neck injury."

The affected vehicles were built from October 12, 2011 through August 30, 2012.

Cadillac dealers will replace the head restraints. The recall began this week. Owners can contact GM at 1-800-458-8006.

Edmunds says: GM has the parts in stock, so it's a good idea to get this taken care of as soon as possible if you own one of the aforementioned XTSs.
