  • General Motors recalling the same SUV’s again!

The previous recall did not fix the problem so GM is announcing another recall of its SUV’s.

General Motors has announced a recall of its SUVs. Although there is a catch. The recalled SUV’s were already recalled by GM before. The reason for the recall is the simple fact that the SUVs were not fixed the first time.

According to GM, the SUVs have a defect which could lead to a fire hazard. Owners of the SUVs have been urged to park the vehicles outside of their homes until the recall. Due to the defect, liquid could enter the master power window switch module in the driver’s door. The liquid can then lead to a short circuit which can potentially cause a fire. 

A total of 10,974 SUVs by GM have been recalled from North America. More than 9,932 SUVs have been recalled from the US. The vehicles with the fire hazard include different models. The 2006-2007 Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, and GMC Envoy have been recalled.

Similarly the 2006 Trailblazer EXT and Envoy XL have also made it on the recall list. A blog post by GM has revealed the 2006-2007 Saab 9-7X and Isuzu Ascender are also part of the recall.

GM previously recalled the SUVs back in 2013 due to the same issue. More than 193,000 vehicles were recalled by GM in 2013. In 2014 GM even replaced the entire module to counter the problem. 

A recent investigation by GM found out the current models involved in the recall never received the new parts. According to GM some dealers were confused and instead of module replacement only added a protective coating in the last recall.
