The 2010 Cadillac SRX crossover just released a few months ago, and already GM is recalling due to the possibility of engine failure on its model that is equipped with the 2.8-liter V6 engine, mainly the turbocharged version.

The turbocharged 2010 Cadillac SRX crossover was already a bad choice at the beginning in terms of fuel consumption and cost. The problem of the engine failure was the turbocharged model required 91 octane rating gasoline to be able to perform normally. When lower octane gasoline is used and it is driven aggressively, it could cause the engine to misfire (pre-ignition.)

Pre-ignition is a serious issue, which can cause engine piston to crack and connecting rods to bend. You can tell if there is a pre-ignition problem if you hear a pinging or knocking sound from the engine while driving.

Owners can bring their vehicles to any Cadillac dealership to get the engine control module reprogrammed free of charge.
