Over 51k new GM SUVs recalled

Posted on May 9, 2014 3:59 pm under Automotive Defects

Over 51,000 new models of General Motors (GM) vehicles are being recalled by the manufacturer to address a software issue in the fuel system that could lead to dangerous accidents, Bloomberg stated on May 4.

According to reports, 51,640 Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) are affected by a software problem that may inaccurately detect the fuel level of the vehicles. Occupants of the affected SUVs are at great risk of sustaining injuries if the engine suddenly stops after running out of gas while in motion. GM identified 2014 models of GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Traverse, and Buick Enclave that may have this problematic software issue. The car maker said they will fix the problem by recalibrating the fuel systems of the SUVs at no cost.
