General Motors (GM) has issued a recall affecting certain model year 2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V vehicles that were manufactured between September 6, 2003 and June 11, 2007.

All of the affected vehicles are currently registered, or were originally sold, in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.

Snow or water containing road salt or other contaminants may corrode the front brake hose fitting at the caliper on the CTS-V vehicles in question. This corrosion may cause the brake system to leak, which could lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increase the risk of a crash.

An estimated 4,907 Cadillac CTS-V vehicles are impacted by the recall.

GM will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and local dealers will replace both front brake hose assemblies, free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this recall. For further information, contact Cadillac customer service toll-free at 1-800-458-8006.

GM's reference number for this recall is 15149.
