General Motors Issues Huge Recall on Pickup Trucks

An enormous recall of various General Motors pickup trucks has highlighted the dangers the vehicles face regarding engine fires.

The Wall Street Journal published a press release from General Motors explaining that its 2014 GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, both full-size pickup trucks, run the risk of “overheating of exhaust components,” which can lead to the engine catching fire. Needless to say, this is an incredibly dangerous situation, and one that demands a recall and full repair.

The car manufacturer reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that, in the United States, it will recall just over three hundred thousand (300,000) of its trucks with 5.3 and 4.3- liter engines; recalled trucks sold in Mexico and Canada, meanwhile, will total about 67,000.

A dangerous car of any variety is a terrifying thing to consider: unlike a stationary product, a car’s defect might be exposed on the road traveling at seventy miles per hour, leading to devastating and even fatal results. GM was correct to recall its trucks, and with any luck there will be no injuries before the auto giant can get its vehicles fixed.
