Following on from our earlier report which informed you about a fresh recall for car giants Nissan, we now have news of another recall, this time affecting General Motors and two of their popular motors.
As reported from the Wall Street Journal, General Motors are recalling 14,425 vehicles in the US after discovering that there is a potential problem with starter and alternator cables in some of their models.
According to WSJ, the Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne cars with V8 engines that were manufactured between 2010 and 2011 model years are affected – i.e the most recent versions to date.
The problem lies when these cables rub against the power-steering return line, which in-turn could cause steering fluid to leak, leading to possible fires. So far, GM states that four related fires have been caused because of this issue, but no injuries have been reported so far.
If you own either of the 2010-2011 Cadillac DTS or Buick Lucerne models, you should contact your nearest GM dealer for more information on this.
