On certain vehicles, repeated flexing of the Passenger Sensing System mat in the front passenger seat may cause the mat to kink, bend, or fold. This flexing can break the connections in the mat. If this occurs, the front passenger airbag could become disabled. If the airbag becomes disabled, the passenger airbag status indicator on the rearview mirror will show that the airbag is OFF, the AIR BAG indicator will be illuminated, and a SERVICE AIR BAG message will appear in the Driver Information Centre. Failure of the passenger airbag to deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injuries to the seat occupant. Correction: Dealers will replace the Passenger Sensing System mat and the seat cushion in the front passenger seat of vehicles built between December 8, 2003 and August 31, 2004, as well as those built from June 6, 2005 to Feb 18, 2007. Owners of other 2005-2007 Cadillac CTS vehicles will be provided with a "special warranty coverage". Should this issue occur, GM will repair these vehicle free of charge up to 10 years or 192,000 km from first vehicle registration.
