GeneralMotors185 Cadillac Recalls Crossovers for Wheels Falling OffOwners of General Motors’ (GM) 2013 Cadillac SRX SUVs should take a close look at the lug nuts securing their vehicles’ wheels.

GM says no injuries or accidents have been associated with the problem so far. The loose lug nuts may have resulted from a combination of different factors, including improper tightening, bad brake rotors and possibly defective lug nuts. The auto giant began looking into the problem in November.

Letters are being sent to notify owners of affected SRX SUVs. Dealers will inspect and reinstall the lug nuts and rotate the wheels.

Earlier this month, GM recalled 38,000 Chevrolet and Buick hybrid cars over defective circuit boards in their eAssist hybrid systems that could lead to stalling and fires.

Despite the news, shares of GM climbed more than 3% in Tuesday morning trading.
