New General Motors recall affects the Chevrolet Aveo image

General Motors has announced a new recall, this time for the Chevrolet Aveo, which is facing a fire risk.

Not a day goes by without General Motors announcing yet another and another recall, gaining the joy of their customers and managing to attract new people into buying their cars. According to the North American based automaker, the Chevrolet Aveo is the subject to this new recall. This affects the 2004-2008 model year Aveo which have been equipped with the DRL (daytime running lights), as these can lead to a fire.

‘In the affected vehicles, there may be heat generated within the DRL module located in the center console in the instrument panel, which could melt the DRL module. If the DRL module melts due to the heat generation, it could cause a vehicle fire”, says the NHTSA in its recall summary of the problem.

The feds are stating that the remedy for the recall campaign is still under development and it seems that the car manufacturer hasn’t provided a notification schedule, just yet. Owners of the 2004-2008 Chevrolet Aveo living in the U.S. can contact the General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet) or the NHTSA hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
