New GM recalls affecting 524k vehicles image

Another two recalls have been announced by the North American based automotive giant, General Motors, because of the manufacturing defect in the chassis control module and the hood latches.

The first recall is affecting no less than 290,107 vehicles in the United States which include the 2011 – 2012 Saab 9-4X and the 2010 – 2015 Cadillac SRX, because of the toe adjuster link which could separate and cause the wheel to shift while driving, increasing the risk of crash. Three crashes and two injuries have been related to this problem.

The second recall announced by General Motors is aimed towards the 2013 – 2015 Chevrolet Spark, in the United States, which has been assembled between the 17th of January, 2012, and the 29th of July, 2014. GM says that the secondary hood latch striker can stick in the open position because of corrosion and if this happens, and the primary latch will not be engaged, the hood of the car could fly open. This recall is affecting 89,294 Spark vehicles but GM says that it is not aware of any crasher or injuries related to this problem. Repairs will be made free of charge and owners can contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 for any extra details on the subject.
