Electric Fault Spurs Big GM Recall

August, 2008

Detroit (Reuters) - General Motors Corp (GM.N) is recalling 857,735 vehicles equipped with a heated windshield wiper fluid system for a potential short-circuit problem, according to federal safety regulators.

The recall involves:

  • 2007-2008 model year Chevrolet Silverado,Tahoe, Avalanche and Suburban
  • Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV and Escalade EXT,
  • GMC Acadia, Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL
  • Saturn Outlook
  • 2006-2008 Hummer H2
  • Cadillac DTS
  • Buick Lucerne, and the 2008 Buick Enclave

GM plans to install a wire harness with an in-line fuse, free of charge to fix the problem. This may only be done, free of charge, if you take your vehicle to a dealership. We would suggest you call ahead to schedule your appointment.

If you choose not to drive to a dealership and are willing to pay for this wire harness and labor charges for your vehicle, we invite you to call Redrock Precision Motors. We will be more than happy to take care of this issue for you.

Separately, GM is also recalling 88,809, 2008-model year Buick Enclave and 2007-2008 model year GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook SUVs in 28 states and Washington, D.C.

A build-up of snow or ice on the windshield or the wipers may restrict the movement of the wiper arm in the SUVs and could cause the wiper to detach from its motor.

Protect yourself and those you love. Have your car inspected at your earliest opportunity.
