General Motors (GM), as all Americans who watch the evening news or read a newspaper know, has been busy in the past several months dealing with all of its safety problems. The automaker has had to issue warnings about all of the defective vehicles it has on the road and those numbers grow daily. But the latest warning sent to GM vehicle owners may be the weirdest of all. The automaker has SUV owners concerned, according to a report by CBS News, and that’s because SUVs could catch on fire. GM warned them that they shouldn’t park their vehicle inside a garage.
After reflecting on the warnings given by GM, I suppose it really is better to let a GM SUV burn outside rather than in a garage. That would save the burning down of a house and, more importantly, could save the lives of occupants in case of a night fire that would involve the house.
Approximately 169,000 vehicles are affected, sold between 2006 and 2007, including the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 97-X. GM announced six recalls on June 30 that covered 7.6 million vehicles. GM says parts won’t be available for the SUVs until October.
