General Motors is recalling about 550 Cadillac SRX vehicles from the 2010 model year.
The company said that in models equipped with a 2.8L V6 engine, engine problems may result if owners use regular fuel instead of the required high-octane fuel.
The combination of low-octane fuel and aggressive driving could result in a knocking or pinging sound, followed by a broken rod or piston, possible resulting in engine failure.
Dealers will reprogram the engine control module when the recall begins in June. Owners may contact GM at 1-866-982-2339.
Consumers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153) or at www.safercar.gov.
