WASHINGTON General Motors is recalling 10,005 2004-'07 Cadillac CTS-V and 2006-'07 Cadillac STS-V sedans in the U.S. for potential overheating in fuel pump modules, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

"In the affected vehicles, the electrical terminals of the fuel pump module may overheat, resulting in the melting of the flange material," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "If the flange melts, a hole may be created, allowing the fuel pump to leak fuel, causing the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

"Additionally, leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire."

The affected CTS-V cars were built from October 6, 2003 to March 15, 2007. The affected STS-V cars were built from June 23, 2005 to March 15, 2007.

GM said it is unaware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities linked to the recall.

Cadillac dealers will replace the fuel module and fuel tank jumper harness. A date has not been set for the recall. Owners can contact Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006.

Edmunds says: Owners should wait for their formal recall notice before taking action.
But if you have a concern in the meantime, it's best to contact your dealer.
