Recall roundup: 100,000 GM vehicles in Canada image

The North American based automotive giant General Motors has recently announced a recall for several of its models, including the Aveo, the Epica, the Pontiac G3 Wave and the Optra.

According to the car manufacturer, more than 100,000 units of its vehicles will be affected by this recall and owners of these models will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with the daytime running lights. General Motors says that because of an electrical problem, the daytime running lights might fail and this can increase the risk of a crash and injury.

More than 100,000 units of the 2004 – 2007 Chevrolet Aveo, 2004 – 2006 Chevrolet Epica, 2005 – 2006 Optra and 2004 – 2007 Pontiac G3 Wave will be affected by this recall and owners of the above mentioned models will be notified by General Motors this month. The company says that because of the problem with the daytime running lights, the vehicles will become less visible to pedestrians and other motorists during daylight hours and this can lead to a crash. 100,739 units of the models mentioned above will have to be taken back to the dealers. The recall only takes place in Canada because in the United States, daytime running lights aren’t mandatory.
