GM recalls Vue, Captiva SUVs

September 20, 2008|From Times Wire Services

General Motors Corp. is recalling 48,944 Saturn Vue and Chevrolet Captiva sport utility vehicles to tighten a nut that may allow steering fluid to leak, which can lead to a fire.

The voluntary recall affects 2008 and 2009 model-year Vues and Captivas, GM said in a letter posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. GM received reports of four fires related to the recalled Saturns.

Vue and Captiva owners will be notified beginning Sept. 26 to take their SUVs to a dealership where the nut will be tightened and steering-fluid levels checked, Detroit-based GM said. Owners won't be charged because the vehicles are all under warranty, GM said.
