General Motors has just announced that it is recalling 47,401 2011 Cadillac SRX models over faulty airbag software. The 2011 Cadillac SRX models have sensors that are programmed to deactivate the right-side roof rail airbag if it detects that the right side seat is unoccupied, which means that if there is a rollover, the rear seat occupants may not be protected by the supplemental restraint system.

In such, the 2011 Cadillac SRX models do not meet the federal motor vehicle safety standard 208, which deals with occupant protection.

Customers can bring in their affected 2011 Cadillac SRX models to any GM dealership for inspection and reprogram of the airbag system free of charge. Official recall notifications to Cadillac SRX owners will be sent out by June 17.
