text size: A- A+
GM is recalling a total of 249,260 mid-size SUVs, including the 2006-'07 Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X, as well as the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL. The problem is linked to corrosion, which means that the affected vehicles are sold or registered in 20 cold-weather states, as well as the District of Columbia.
So, let’ hear the details in the words of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA): "Fluid may enter the driver's door module, causing corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative. The short may also cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing odor, smoke or a fire. “
GM claims that it is not aware of any incidents related to this problem. The company has not released a scheduler for the recall, as it hasn’t managed to come up with a solution yet.
