Cadillac is recalling its brand-new Lyriq electric model, over a problem with the multimedia screen.
Recalls are at an all-time high in the automotive industry, and with the explosion of multimedia technologies, we shouldn’t expect that to change for a while. If there's any good news, it's that many of these recent recalls are not safety related.
That's the case with the new Cadillac Lyriq, the first all-electric model from the General Motors (GM) luxury brand. The recall is accompanied by a stop-sales order as the automaker works to identify a fix for a problem affecting the touchscreen multimedia system. Since the vehicle is so new, only 186 units are affected.
So there's no need to panic here, but it's important to share the news if only to demonstrate the challenge that awaits any manufacturer with new vehicles equipped with new systems.
