More than 290,200 cars are being recalled by General Motors because of a problem with the rear suspension toe adjuster.

In the affected 2010-2015 Cadillac SRX and 2011-2012 Saab 9-4X the jam nut in the rear suspension toe adjuster link may not be torqued to the proper specification.

A loose toe adjuster link can cause the vehicle to sway or wander at highway speeds. A loose toe adjuster link may lead to thread damage and eventual failure. Failure of the toe adjuster link will cause an abrupt change in the vehicle's alignment and the driver could lose control of the car.

GM will notify owners of the recall.

Dealers will inspect the torque of the left and right rear toe link adjuster lock nuts, and replace the parts if there is evidence of damage or a loose link, free of charge. Remedy parts, if needed, are expected to be available around the middle of November.

Owners with questions can contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006 or Saab customer service at 1-800-955-9007. GM's number for this recall is 14457.
