GM recalls 1.5 million vehicles over fire hazard from heated windshield washer system |

We made fun of Chrysler at the beginning of the week for issuing a hefty number of recalls, but General Motors has seemingly decided that it wants to have the biggest recall this week, issuing a massive one, affecting 1.5 million vehicles.

According to GM, the heated windshield washer system installed on a lot of vehicles manufactured between 2006 and 2009 can lead to fire in some extreme cases. A recall for the issue was made several years ago, but the problem hasn’t disappeared.

As such, owners of the following models are advised to get to their local dealerships soon. The vehicles affected are: Buick Enclave and Lucerne; Cadillac CTS, DTS, Escalade, Escalade ESV and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado 3500, Suburban, Tahoe and Traverse; GMC Acadia, Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL, Hummer H2 and Saturn Outlook.

A fix hasn’t been found exactly, so GM will offer a $100 compensation and remove the heated windshield washer system on the 1.5 million affected models.
