Fire Threat Prompts General Motors To 193,652 Vehicles

Posted on

Two types of GMC Envoy and Chevy Trailblazer vehicles as well as SAAB 9-7x, Isuzu Ascender, and Buick Rainier vehicles of the 2006 and 2007 model years are being recalled by General Motors.  A whopping 193,652 automobiles are potentially encompassed within the scope of the recall, which was issued once it was discovered that moisture can seep into the module of the driver’s door, prompting corrosion and possibly a short circuit.  The problems with this are twofold:  overheating could melt vehicle components and lead to a fire, or the power windows and doors would cease to function.  Because the fire is possible even when the vehicle is parked, owners are being advised to keep the vehicles outside and away from something like a garage until free repairs can be obtained from a dealer.
