The 2020 Cadillac XT5 and XT6 are being recalled over an issue with the vehicles’ fuel delivery system.
The problem: the fuel pump jet nozzle in affected vehicles “may have a plastic burr remaining from the manufacturing process,” at the tip, which can clog the nozzle and interrupt fuel flow to the engine.
The hazards: the issue can lead to a sudden engine stall without warning, which can increase the risk of a crash. It’s not clear if any accidents or injuries can be traced back to this problem.
The fix: Cadillac dealers will replace the entire fuel pump module in affected vehicles. These repairs will be done at no cost to the owner of the vehicle.
Affected components: fuel pump nozzle, fuel pump module.
