Chevrolet Captiva Recalled: Fire from Overheating Steering Fluid
No fires have been reported due to this issue yet, and GM sats that it only happens under certain conditions, most frequently when the transmission is left in first gear under manual mode for a prolonged time, causing the overheating.
It’s ironic that the Chevrolet brand stands a risk of being tarnished by fire-related recalls. Most recently, the NHTSA found that the Volt extended-range EV could come ablaze after coolant around the lithium ion battery leaked and crystallized on the battery itself.
