General Motors is issuing out a recall on thousands of vehicles due to a leak hazard that can cause fires.
According to Fox Business, at least 217,000 cars and SUVs across America and Canada are facing recalls for a potential dangerous defect.
Recall notices suggest vehicles are prone to transmission oil leaks which can cause vehicle stalls and possibly cause the vehicles to catch fire.
Manufacturers at GM are accusing two missing bolts from the vehicle as the source of the defect. This issue can be fixed at local dealers. No reports of consumer injuries have been released.
Drivers have enough to worry about while traversing the roadways on a daily basis. When a person gets behind the wheel of a car, there is a reasonable expectation that the car is going to perform in a matter that would not put the operator’s life in jeopardy. Unfortunately there are hundreds of vehicle recalls each year due to manufacturer defects, from the tires to the ignition switches, that can cause catastrophic injuries and in some cases death. If you or a loved one have been injured due to a defective part in a vehicle, contact Thomas J. Henry.
