    A seat belt isn't going to do you a whole lot of good when it's not properly attached to the car in the first place.

    That's what's happening with 131 Cadillac CTS sedans. Apparently someone on the assembly line forgot to install the front passenger seat belt anchor bolts.

    "GM says the CT6 cars have bolts that connect the front passenger seat belt webbing to the anchor plates of the seats, or at least the bolts are supposed to be there."…

    CTS owners should beware of falling stars. Safety stars, that is.

    If you bought a 2014 CTS, one of the deciding factors might have been the car's 5-star safety rating in three critical categories: frontal crash driver, frontal crash passenger, and rollover. However, GM started sending out letters to owners saying "Our bad, the window sticker was totally wrong. Here's a coupon for some free OnStar. We cool?"

    OK, while I'm paraphrasing their exact words, I am not making up the OnStar offer. That was the best they could come up with.…

    GM is recalling nearly 4,800 new trucks and SUVs, and telling their owners to stop driving until their front upper control arms can be repaired.

    The automaker blames the problem on a bad weld near the control arm bushing, a problem the automaker discovered on a GMC Yukon XL Denali. The faulty weld can cause the control arm to change shape and eventually separate.…

    The days are getting shorter, the temperatures are getting colder, and it's time to fire up our car's defrosters.

    Unfortunately for 121,000 ATS owners, though, firing up their defrosters might actually start a fire. Cadillac issued a recall for the 2013-16 ATS sedans after four confirmed reports of fires from the rear defroster:

    "The defroster [overheats] due to a weak electrical connection in the module. The fires have been reported breaking out on the driver's side rear pillar where the defroster module is located."…

    The Cadillac ATS has a super-sensitive sunroof switch (yikes, try saying that a few times fast).

    GM says the sunroof can be activated too easily and is recalling 83,000 of the sedans to replace the roof console switch trim plate. Sound familiar? The same problem was recalled earlier this year. Obviously that didn't go so well.…

    Cadillac is pretty sure your car's brakes work.

    Of course, the Titanic captain was pretty sure there weren't any icebergs in the way (and we all know how that went down).

    Luckily for you, Cadillac has decided to check the brakes as part of a recall. Specifically, they'll be examining a bracket between the brake pedal assembly and the rod that controls the brakes. If that bracket is fractured, it will break the brakes ... so to speak.…

    Some GM vehicles have a rear hatch with a nasty habit of dropping on your head.

    It's no gentle drop either, owners have been complaining that the gas strut rods can fail allowing the lift-gate to give way to gravity and drop on your head like an apple -- a really, really, heavy apple. Thanks a lot, Newton.…

    GM says over 3,100 SRXs might have been built with the wrong driver's seat track bracket.

    Taking a sharp turn, making an unexpected stop or a crash could cause the seat to detach and make a mess of the driver. That's a problem.…

    Have you heard of a Monroney sticker?

    I can guarantee you've seen one --- it's the sticker required by law to be on all new cars sold in the US with important information like price, fuel economy and safety ratings.You just assume those things are accurate, but what happens when they're not?…
