Recall: Cadillac Asks Some Lyriq Owners Not to Use Rear Seats

Cadillac has issued a recall that affects 43 units of its Lyriq electric vehicle from model years 2023 and 2024. But it’s urgent for those owners because it includes a critical safety warning – stop using some rear seats.

Cadillac tells the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that factory workers may have improperly welded the bracket that anchors some seatbelts to the seat frame. The company asks owners “not to use the left-rear and center-rear seating positions until the recall repair is completed.”

Cadillac will contact owners beginning January 8, 2024. Since Lyriq owners can’t know if their car is included in the recall effort before that date, we’d advise all of them to stop using the seats in question and call Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006 to ask if their vehicle is included.

Cadillac says it knows of no accidents or injuries related to the problem discovered at the factory.

Dealers will replace the rear seat cushion frame to fix the problem. Like all recall repairs, the fix will be free.

Many cars face recalls at some point in their lives. Automakers try to contact every owner to let them know they must bring their vehicle in for repairs. But they aren’t always successful in finding everyone. Using our recall center, you can see whether your car has any unaddressed recall issues.
