The North American based automotive giant General Motors has recently announced a recall for some of its SUVs, because of a problem with a possible short.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 193,652 vehicles will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to drive them back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the short fixed. The NHTSA says that the affected SUVs will be the Chevrolet Trailblazer, the GMC Envoy, the Buick Rainier, the Saab 9-7x and Isuzu Ascender, from the 2006 and 2007 model year.
NHTSA is advising owners of such vehicles to park them outdoors until they will be inspected because a potential water leak on the driver’s side door can cause a short circuit in the driver’s side electrical panel model. This can lead to a fire caused by an electrical short. The affected vehicles will be inspected by dealers after the owners will be contacted by Chrysler and the defective modules will be replaced. Meanwhile, if you own one of the vehicles mentioned above, you should contact your local dealership or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
