Cadillac Recalls 12,626 XTS Models for Improper Rear Headrests
The official statement from NHTSA says: “The rear seat head restraints may not lock in the upright position after being folded forward. If the head restraint is at its lowest position and it falls forward, it will not meet the height required by the standard. In the event of a vehicle crash, the lowered head restraint may increase the occupant’s risk of neck injury.”
The recall affects 12,626 units, which will be brought back to the dealers and the faulty headrests will be replaced free of charge. The affected vehicles were made between October 12, 2011 and August 30, 2012.
