GM in 1.5m re­call

Daily Mail - - City & Finance -

GEN­ERAL Mo­tors, owner of Vaux­hall, is re­call­ing 1.5m ve­hi­cles due to fears a com­po­nent that heats the wind­screen wash­ing fluid could catch fire.

Most of the cases af­fect Chevro­let, Cadil­lac and Hum­mer brands sold in Amer­ica in 2006-2009. But one in ten in­volves cars sold in for­eign mar­kets, no­tably Canada and Mex­ico. Cus­tomers will re­ceive $100 for the re­moval of the com­po­nent, GM said.

Toy­ota re­called 9m cars in 2009 and 2010, fol­low­ing in­ci­dents in which ac­cel­er­a­tor ped­als be­came stuck. This re­call is much smaller but may hurt GM, which filed for Chap­ter 11 bank­ruptcy in Jan­uary 2009, far more.
