Geneal Motors is recalling about 1.5 million vehicles worldwide to address an old problem.
General Motors is recalling 1.4 million vehicles in the US and more than 100,000 in Canada, Mexico and other international markets. This is the second recall by General Motors over a heated windshield wiper fluid system that could catch fire. The recall affects several pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles, crossovers and passenger car models from 2006 to 2009. The Detroit automaker’s plans are to disable the heated washer fluid system module that could lead to fires and pay owners and those leasing vehicles $100 each since the feature is being disabled.
GM conducted a similar recall in 2008 but came across new reports of fires in vehicles that had been fixed. GM said it was aware of five fires but there had been no injuries or crashes reported.
