GM Recalls More Than 30,000 Lansing Built SUV’s
General Motors announced the recall of more than 30,000 sport utility vehicles built at Lansing's Delta Township Assembly Plant. Faulty windshield wiper motors in 2016 GMC Acadia, Chevy Traverse, and Buick Enclave models may overheat, increasing the risk of fire, according to thecarconnection.com. The affected vehicles were all produced between August 18, 2015 and September 24, 2015. Owners of these models should not use their wipers until the repair is made.
According to a report on wlns.com, GM will arrange for dealers to pick up vehicles for service if weather prevents safe travel. GM will also provide rental car service for vehicles affected by any parts shortages. The report says that electrical terminals are coming into contact with each other due to faulty motor covers.
Only 6,400 of the nearly 32,000 affected vehicles were sold to consumers. The issue was noticed when a motor overheated on a vehicle in the factory.
