Once again, General Motors (GM) has issued a new recall. After recalling nearly 800,000 cars in February due to ignition problems, GM announced another recall on Thursday, September 18. GM stated that they are recalling 3,200 natural gas-powered vans from the market. Yesterday’s recall adds to GM’s whopping list of 29.1 million vehicles recalled in North America this year.
The vehicles affected in this recall are Chevrolet Express vans, manufactured between September 2010 and April 2014, and certain GMC Savana vans, made between May 2011 and April 2014. According to GM, gas may leak from the vans’ compressed natural gas regulators.
GM disclosed to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that dealerships nationwide will replace the part on affected cars for free.
