General Motors (GM) has recalled certain 2011 model year Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac SRX vehicles due to a noncompliance with a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard involving regulations for windshield defrosting and defogging systems.
According to the recall post, the recalled vehicles’ software in the electronic climate control (ECC) module may disable the ability to adjust the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system settings. The loss of control of the defrosting system may decrease driver visibility when the unit is needed, resulting in a car crash.
The recall pertains to approximately 10,000 vehicles and GM began notifying customers March 11, 2011. Dealers will reprogram the ECC module at no charge to the consumer.
Owners may contact Buick at 1-866-608-8080 or Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339 for additional information or on the web at www.gm.com.
