General Motors Company recently announced that they will be issuing a recall for approximately 250,000 potential lemon GM SUVs. In a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, GM stated that the recall is to provide repairs to defects that are a potential fire hazard.
Specifically, the recall affects the model years 2006-2007Chevrolet Trailblazer and GMC Envoy SUVs, and certain model years 2006-2007 Buick Rainier, Saab 9-7X and Isuzu Ascender SUVs.
GM stated that the reason for the recall is a defect with the affected vehicles that can cause fluid to enter the driver’s door module, which in turn can cause an electrical short in the circuit board. This short can result in the power door locks and/or power windows to become inoperative. The short can also cause overheating, melt components of the door module and thereby result in a fire.
Authorized GM dealers will conduct the necessary repairs to the affected vehicles, free of charge.
