2014-2015 Cadillac CTS V-Sport Recalled Over Axle Roll Pins

The 2014-2015 model year Cadillac CTS V-Sport sedan has been recalled in both the United States and Canada due to a problem with the vehicle’s rear axle roll pins.

The problem: according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Transport Canada, the roll pins in affected vehicle’s rear-axle differentials may be prone to fracture. The rear wheels may suddenly lock up if the pins fracture while the vehicle is in motion.

The hazards: if the rear axle roll pins fracture and lock the rear wheels while the vehicle is moving, there is an increased risk of a crash.

Affected vehicles:

  • 2014 Cadillac CTS V-Sport
  • 2015 Cadillac CTS V-Sport

Number of affected vehicles: a total of 2,866 units are affected in the United States, with another 109 vehicles in Canada.

Affected components: rear axle differential, differential roll pins.

The fix: this recall will require dealers to replace the entire rear axle differential of the vehicle, which will be done at no cost to the owner.

Owners should: wait for Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors, to contact them. The company will likely instruct them to make an appointment with their dealer.
