GM Recalling 1.5 Million Vehicles for Fire Risks
Recall! From the past few years this is the word that is echoing in the international automobile industry as every new week or a month gives us the news of some brand being recalled due to some potential problem. Now let’s talk about the latest recall that is coming from the side of GM and according to the reports GM is recalling almost 1.5 million vehicles with heated washer fluid systems that are followed by fires in the engine.
The recall will officially get started on June 14 and the models which will be included in the recall are: 18 models of 2006-2009 Buicks, Cadillacs, Chevrolets, GMCs, Hummers and Saturns, as claimed by NHTSA’s official website.
Just 2 years back GM had been reported of recalling a huge amount of its cars and truck because of the fire problem due to shorts in the system and now again almost similar problem has aroused for some models of cars.
According to Jeff Boyer, GM’s executive director of safety “While our analysis shows the number of incidents is very small compared with the number of vehicles on the road, we want our customers to have complete peace of mind”.
According to the company they are planning to give $100 to the owners of cars for permanently removing the heated washer fluid system and overall we can say that the company is working well for satisfying its customers and this new problem will also get resolved soon.
