Owners of some popular new crossover SUVs are being warned not to use their windshield wipers. General Motors has recalled 2016 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia SUVs because a wiper motor can encounter an electrical short and catch on fire. The vehicles are being repaired through replacement of wiper motor covers. The problem was found when one of the motors overheated at a GM factory. Only 6,400 of the nearly 32,000 crossovers were sold, according to GM. The remainder are at dealerships, where the automakers say they will stay until they are repaired. Because of the no-drive warning, GM is offering to come to customers for the repair if they can’t come to the dealership. The automaker is also offering provide rental vehicles to owners whose dealers are telling them they can’t get repair parts.
