GM Recalls 1.5 Million Vehicles Over Electric Problems
A little frustrated, the guys from GM have decided to show Chrysler how to do it and decided to recall 1,500,000 cars.
Yesterday we told you about the Chrysler recall involving Chrysler Town&Country and Dodge Caravan minivans produced between February and September 2007. Now it’s General Motor’s turn. If Chrysler is recalling 285,000 vehicles, GM recalls 1.5 million cars. So, if you own a: Buick Enclave or Lucerne; Cadillac CTS, DTS, Escalade, Escalade ESV or Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado 3500, Suburban, Tahoe or Traverse; GMC Acadia, Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL, Hummer H2 or Saturn Outlook you’d better call your dealer.
Especially if the car is build between 2006 and 2009. And if it’s a version for the US market then you must act quickly. There is a risk of fire, that’s all. The system that warms the windscreen washing fluid can lead to flames.
In 2008 GM recalled some vehicles to fix the same problem, but it seems that recall wasn’t much of a success. GM is willing to pay every owner $100 to remove the system from the car. The maths is simple: a hole of $15 million in GM’s budget, but in times like these no price is to high if you want to have a good image and keep your customers satisfied.
