GM has announced that they are recalling certain models of the 2010 – 2011 DTS and Buick Lucerne vehicles equipped with V8 engines. They stated that the starter or alternator cable is in contact with the power steering return line. If either the starter or alternator cable is contacting the power steering return line, the cable would wear through the line, causing a power steering fluid leak.
A power steering leak could result in a loss of power steering, increasing the risk of a crash, and/or the leak onto hot engine parts could cause an engine compartment fire. Dealers will secure and if necessary reroute the lines to prevent contact. This service will be preformed free of charge. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Buick at 1-866-608-8080 and at owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.
