GM Expands SUV Recall, Advises Owners to Park Vehicles Outside

NBC Nightly News reported, “GM is recalling over 200,000 mid-size SUVs because of a fire risk that is serious enough to force the company to advise owners not to park them in the garage, but outside instead until the problem can be corrected.”

The New York Times reports, “The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration pursuaded General Motors to recall almost 194,000 more 2005-7 sport utility vehicles for an electrical problem that could cause fires” and that a similar recall affecting about 278,000 vehicles was issued last year in certain states. The Times notes that “G.M. had resisted both recalls, wanting instead to provide some owners with an extended warranty, according to two documents – one from 2012 and another posted over the weekend on N.H.T.S.A.’s Web site.” Meanwhile, “safety advocates like The Center for Auto Safety have routinely criticized regional recalls, saying they save automakers money and may miss vehicles that need repairs.”

The Los Angeles Times reports that “GM said it knows of six fires and one injury caused by the problem among this group of cars. Previously, it recalled 249,000 similar models for the same problem.” Meanwhile, GM said that “as a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
