GM Announces Recall Over Oil Leak That Could Stop Cars, 217,000 Vehicles Involved
DETROIT – General Motors is recalling more than 217,000 cars and SUVs over a possible transmission oil leak that could cause vehicles to stop unexpectedly or catch fire. According to the Associated Press, several different vehicles from the 2018 to 2020 model years are involved in the recall and have been sold in the United States and Canada.
The vehicles affected by the recall include:
- 2020 Chevrolet Equinox and Traverse
- 2020 GMC Terrain.
- 2018 Chevrolet Malibu
- 2018 and 2019 Chevrolet Cruze and Buick LaCrosse
- 2019 to 2020 Buick Encore and Enclave, Cadillac XT4, GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Blazer
- 2020 Cadillac XT6
Documents released by the automaker suggest that the problem revolves around two bolts that may be missing in the stop-start mechanism. These missing bolts can allow fluid to leak, but no injuries or accidents have been reported to the company as a result of the problem.
GM expects repairs to begin around Dec. 14 and will be done at dealerships if necessary.
