Recall roundup: GM CNG vans image

The North American based automotive giant General Motors has recently issued yet another recall, this time for its compressed natural gas powered vans, due to a potential fire risk.

If you though that you haven’t seen the words “General Motors” and “recall” in the same sentence for quite some time now, don’t despair, because the North American based automaker has just issued yet another recall, this time aimed towards the vans running on compressed natural gas (CNG), because of a potential fire risk. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that no less than 3,200 units of the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size fans will be affected by this recall.

The Chevrolet vehicles have been produced between September 10, 2010, and April 28, 2014, with 2,939 vehicles affected, while the 257 GMCs have been produced between the 23rd of May, 2011, and the 21st of April, 2014. GM is advising customers who suspect a leak not to start the engine or drive the vehicle and have it towed to a dealership in order to be inspected. The recall should begin soon and the necessary repairs will be made free of charge.
