The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has indicated that a series of vehicles manufactured by General Motors that were equipped with IMPCO compressed natural gas fuel systems are being recalled.
These vehicles could pose a serious fire risk to drivers and passengers since the fuel shut-off solenoid connector could corrode and increase the risk of a short. If a short occurs, the connector may overheat and a fire may ensue. The vehicles affected by this particular recall include the 2011 through 2013 GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express. The company has stated that all affected consumers will be notified of this recall in order to offer vehicle owners a free inspection and repair.
The company hasn’t announced a notification schedule yet, however, affected consumers are advised to contact the company or follow this link to read the official recall announcement to learn more about how they should proceed to avoid a fire.
Act promptly and have your affected vehicle fully repaired in order to prevent a potential incident that could lead to injuries. Many fatal accidents occur due to a defective part or bit of equipment before recalls are issued. As an attorney, I encourage you to not delay to respond to a vehicle recall if your car was affected.
