General Motors have announced yet another recall and now, things are getting rather messy!
The company has issued six more recalls, adding to their ever-growing list. The latest recall affected roughly 718 000 vehicles in the US and now brings the total number of recalls to an astonishing 60.
In total, the GM recalls, which are being labeled as the biggest in history, has affected more than 29.7 million cars and trucks over the last few months.
The biggest recall however, which was announced on Wednesday, was for more than 414,000 small SUV’s and other cars. The biggest fault with these particular cars seems to be faulty seats. (more…)
As you may have heard over the past month or two, General Motors have landed themselves in some serious hot water. The company has recalled a staggering number of cars lately, making it into the record books as the biggest recall in history.
To date, the crumbling company has recalled more than 29 million cars over the past few months. Most of the cars being recalled are US-based, with a few others being from Canada and other parts of the world.
Yesterday, the company – no doubt with their heads hanging in shame – announced that they are recalling a further 7.6 million cars in the US and roughly 800 000 cars elsewhere. Some of the cars they are recalling in this new batch, dates back as far as 1997.
Including the cars being recalled elsewhere in the world with the US recalls today, it brings the total number of fresh recalls to 8.4 million. (more…)
Toyota will be heaving a huge sigh of relief knowing that other famous brands will also recall some of their vehicles. Joining the bandwagon, Porsche is going to recall 11,324 Panameras (2010 models) as the automobile manufacturer discovered a seat belt related flaw during internal testing. Porsche detailed that accelerating and reversing repeatedly could cause the seat-belt to release. While this is no major problem, Porsche intends to fix the Panameras when they are taken to a dealership for scheduled maintenance. I think we can start making bets to find out who’s next in the recall saga. Who do you think they are?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a recall has been issued by Honda for approximately 43,000 Acura RL sedan, 2005-2008 models, because of the high temperatures created by the V6 engine that affects the power steering hose and could lead to fluid leaks onto th catalytic converter. These things could cause fire and I am sure you wouldn’t want something like that to happen.
Though nothing bad happened so far, Honda is issuing a recall so you’d better go ask your local dealer if they know anything or call Honda directly before they send it to your mailbox.
