General Motors (GM) is recalling more than 22,000 model year 2016-2018 Cadillac CT6 vehicles.

What's the problem?

The inboard child seat anchorage bars on these vehicles may have had excess structural adhesive applied during assembly, which can interfere with the installation of a child seat. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems."

If a child seat cannot be attached correctly to the anchorage bar, there is an increased the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

What happens next?

GM will notify owners of the recalled vehicles. Dealers will then inspect the inboard child seat anchorage bar, remove any excess adhesive, and apply anti-corrosion primer to the anchorage bar. This will all be completed free of charge to vehicle owners.
