Cadillac is blaming the wax coating on a rear suspension component for its latest recall of certain 2009 and 2010 model year CTS models. A total of 50,000 vehicles are affected worldwide, though only 11,147 of these are here in the U.S.

The affected vehicles have a condition in which a wax coating on the rear suspension toe link jam nuts may allow the nuts to loosen. If a nut sufficiently loosens, the toe link could separate and the rear wheel would be able to turn inboard or outboard.

Owners may hear a metallic clanking noise coming from the rear of the vehicle that may warn of a loosening nut. If it occurs, drivers may lose control of the vehicle.

The recall is scheduled to take effect this month, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). More information can be found by following the jump below.

    The recall has only been issued for CTS models but if you are concerned you should contact Cadillac on 1-866-982-2339 or visit the website WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.
