NHTSA investigating 2.7 million GM vehicles over engine fires

Wow! 2.7 vehicles caught on fire? Thats a lot to investigate. Maybe they just worded it wrong


hmmm. Houses getting burned down because of forclosures. Super high gas prices and now large SUVs are catching on fire. Could it be related?

nope. 41 vehciles caught fire, but 2.7 million is the total of all similar vehicles in the market that may be affected.

some GTO's had fuel rail fires due to those pretty fuel rail covers cutting into the fuel lines... but i never heard of any recalls... and luckily mine was not affected.

^^^^that wouldn't freakin surprise me if someone suggested it.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."
