GM to recall nearly 52k new model SUVs with software issue

Posted on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014 at 6:33 pm    

Automaker General Motors Co. (GM) recently issued a recall of at least 51,640 recent Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) due to a software malfunction that may fail to give accurate fuel level reading in the vehicles, Bloomberg stated on May 4.

GM identified that the 2014 models of GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave, and Chevrolet Traverse may have an issue in the engine control system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), unexpected engine stalling that may lead to traffic accidents could occur in affected SUVs if drivers are unable to determine the accurate fuel reading. The SUVs will be repaired by GM dealers by re-calibrating their fuel systems for free.
