    Cadillac XTS Recalled for Headrest Mechanism Issues

    Cadillac is recalling about 180 XTS vehicles north of the border over issues with the rear seat headrest mechanisms.

    After the rear seat headrests have been folded out, the mechanism may not lock them in the upright position, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. This recall only affects Canada at the moment, but like with many recalls, is likely to spread to the U.S. soon.

    Dealers will inspect the headrest assembly, and replace it if necessary.

    they sold 180 in Canada that IMHO is pretty good as I would have assumed US roll out would have happened first

    I'm checking GMI way too often, obsessing on seeing spy photos of impending production cars and concept cars!
