*Here’s some scary news from General Motors.
The company is issuing a recall of nearly 200,000 vehicles – including Chevrolets, Buicks, GMCs, Isuzus and Saabs – and is warning owners not to park inside their garages because an electrical glitch in the driver’s side door might cause the vehicle to catch on fire.
Specifically, the recall includes the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL and 2006-07 Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, SAAB 9-7x, and Isuzu Ascender vehicles.
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. The original safety recall covered 20 states and the District of Columbia. Now, all states are covered.
Altogether, there have been 58 reported fires and 11 injuries.
“As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made,” GM said in a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
