Cadillac has issued a recall for 2020 model year Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 sedans due to an issue with the emissions control label.
The problem: the Vehicle Emissions Control Information (VECI) sticker in affected CT4 and CT5 luxury sedans may not contain the necessary On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) identifier for the OBD II port.
The hazards: vehicle occupant safety is not at immediate risk due to the VECI misprint. Since the VECI contains information required for inspection and emissions control services (such as the replacement of a catalytic converter), it is preferable to have the correct label installed on the vehicle.
The fix: a proper VECI label can be easily affixed to the vehicle. In the interest of convenience, Cadillac will ship an updated label directly to Cadillac CT4 and CT5 owners. Included in the package are detailed instructions for self-installation. Customers may also choose to take the label to a dealership for a free installation.
The VECI label is typically found under the hood of a vehicle and may be affixed to the underside of the hood, on a strut tower, radiator support, fan shroud or firewall.

the first of many, my ATS had 8 recalls in the 36 mos I leased it.. never again. Not one Mercedes I’ve owned has ever been recalled, except for the Takata air bag recall which wasn’t Mercedes and was global.
