WASHINGTON (AP) — General Motors says it is recalling more than 50,000 Cadillac CTS vehicles worldwide to fix a loose joint that could cause a rear wheel to become unstable, making it hard for drivers to steer.

GM says the recall affects more than 44,000 CTS vehicles in the United States from the 2009 and 2010 model years. The remaining vehicles were sold in China and around the globe.

GM says there have been no injuries or fatalities related to the recall.

The auto company said nuts in the rear suspension could become loose, causing a sudden change in the vehicle’s handling or making the driver lose control of the vehicle.

Owners can contact Cadillac at 866-982-2339 for more information.

    Great, maybe that explains the humming I hear in my rear wheel. Thx

      Possibly… however ‘humming’ sounds originating from a wheel assembly usually indicate a failing wheel bearing… especially if the ‘hum’ frequency varies with vehicle speed.

    There was a time many many years ago when the name Cadillac meant a great prestegious car and was considered the Rolls-Royce of america. Now when I hear that name all I could thing of is a piece of junk.
