General Motors involved in another dangerous products recall

It appears that General Motors has learned its lesson about waiting too long to recall vehicles, as the company has issued yet another recall. This time around, the company has recalled more than 200,000 Chevrolet Aveo subcompact cars, which brings the total number of recalled GM vehicles this year in the United States to approximately 13.8 million.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently posted the latest recall to its website, stating that Chevrolet Aveos manufactured between 2004 and 2008 could be impacted. According to the recall, the daytime running light module has the potential to overheat, which could cause a fire. The company is aware of several fires due to this issue, but a spokesperson noted that it is not aware of any deaths or injuries as a result.

GM is currently developing a strategy for fixing the issue, and has plans to provide more information in the near future.

This is the latest in a long line of recalls related to dangerous products that have plagued the automaker this year. Last week, GM agreed to pay a fine of $35 million for hiding defects in vehicles that have killed at least 13 people.

Automakers from one side of the globe to the next must realize that the products they sell can harm others if they are not safe. Somewhere along the line, GM took a wrong turn and the company is now paying for it. Unfortunately, many defective parts killed or injured others before they were made aware of the situation and able to have it resolved.
