Water in SRX Headlights
There's enough water accumulating inside 2010-2015 SRX headlight assemblies to fry the bulb. Meanwhile, GM continues to replace the assemblies with the same defective parts.

Stop me if you've heard this one before.
2010-2015 SRX owners are tired of moisture leaking in through faulty seals and burning out their overly expensive bulbs. Following in the footsteps of a Missouri lawsuit earlier this month, a new lawsuit has been filed in Michigan asking for the same reimbursements offered to owners in Florida and California.
A new lawsuit has popped up as SRX owners across the country continue to have mositure problems with their headlights.
Earlier this year Cadillac offered to reimburse expenses related to the problem for owners in Florida and California, but attempts to nationalize the lawsuit were shot down. This latest lawsuit, filed in Missouri, is another sign of how widespread this problem is.
A headlight lawsuit has been settled for owners of the 2010-2015 SRX that live in Florida or California.
Residents of those states will be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses related to moisture getting into the headlight assembly, including bulb replacements, up to $1,600 per replacement. GM will also reimburse owners for a new moisture analysis performed by certified Cadillac technicians.
Attempts to file a nationwide class-action for headlight moisture problems in the SRX have failed
, but the case will move forward for California residents. The lawsuit alleges that GM knew about the faulty seals before selling the cars to consumers. The nationwide case was shot down by the judge who said the Manguson-Moss claim is specific to goods sold in California.
Water collecting in your SRX headlight? You're not alone.
A proposed class-action lawsuit in California says moisture can accumulate through defective headlight seals in the 2010-2015 SRX. The problem reduces visibility and makes nighttime driving more dangerous. The problem can end up costing owners thousands of dollars as the water will cause the epxensive bulbs to repeatedly fail.
It'd be nice to see Cadillac do the right thing here ... you know, without the threat of legal action.
