General Motors has issued another recall, this time for the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, for a problem with the ECM (engine control module).
General Motors seems to go hand in hand with recalls these days and recently a recall involving the Cadillac SRX has been announced, but the North American based automotive giant is now issuing another recall, which is affecting the Buick Enclave, the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia. The NHTSA says that there is a problem with the ECM which can cause the fuel gauge to read incorrectly and the vehicles can run out of fuel and stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
“In the affected vehicles, the engine control module (ECM) software may cause the fuel gauge to read inaccurately. An inaccurate fuel gauge may result in the vehicle unexpectedly running out of fuel and stalling, increasing the risk of a crash”, says the NHTSA in its press release.
The affected vehicles, mentioned above, have been produced between the 26th of March, 2013, and the 15th of August, 2013. General Motors will notify owners of these models and the company’s dealers will reprogram the ECM to correct the fuel gauge reading, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin soon but owners can contact GM at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick) or 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). The NHTSA hotline can be contacted too, at 1-888-327-4236.
