GM recalling 370,000 trucks over fire risk
General Motors announced Friday that it’s recalling some 370,000 trucks in North America because of fire risk.
The affected models include 2014 Chevy Silverados and GMC Sierra full-size trucks. GM said the vehicles had problems with the software that could lead to overheating of exhaust components and cause fires.
GM said it had confirmed eight fires that have resulted from this issue so far, though no injuries.
“All occured in areas with very cold weather,” the automaker said.
Drivers will be alerted about the problem by mail, and can take the affected vehicles to dealerships starting next week for free repairs.
In the meantime, GM urged owners of the trucks in question “to avoid leaving their trucks to idle unattended.”
