WASHINGTON (AP) - General Motors Corp. is recalling more than 42,000 Saturn Vue crossovers in North America because of a possible fluid leak that could lead to an engine fire.
GM said Friday the recall involves the 2008-2009 model years. An
additional 6,500 Chevrolet Captiva crossovers from the same model years are being recalled in Mexico because of the issue.
GM says a nut that secures the power steering line could loosen,
leading to a fluid leak. The fluid could touch hot exhaust components and cause an engine fire.
GM says it has four reports of engine fires due to the problem. A GM spokeswoman says there have been no injuries. Owners will be notified of the recall this month.
