With Cadillac ELR Deliveries Just Getting Underway, the EREV ELR Has Been Hit With Its First Recall

The mounds of recent recalls affecting General Motors' models continues to pile up. in hybrid Cadillac ELR.  656 ELRs to be exact.

Given that only 105 have been sold through the end of March, and this recall involves about half the Cadillac's produced, it likely only affects about 50 cars that are actually on the road today.

At fault is an issue with the programming for the ELR's electronic stability control system.  It seems some software tweaking will be necessary to fix the problem, which at present prevents the system from alerting the driver that ESC has been partially or fully disabled.

Dealers have been issued a stop delivery notice by GM until this problem is addressed.

General Motors notes that this is a simple fix and that it'll only take 20 minutes for Cadillac techs to complete the procedure.
