Cadillac is yet to release specific details about the recall, but details provided to the NHTSA are saying it has something to do with the glove box assembly. The recall issue isn't really something 'wrong' with the car per se, it's more of a potential problem only in the event of a frontal impact.
The company is taking the recall issue very seriously though and is offering to replace necessary glove box compartment structures on all the affected Cadillac CTS and CTS-V models, made in 2009 and 2010, free of charge.
The recall and repairs are scheduled to begin on October 20.
