General Motors is recalling vehicles again. This time, GM is recalling over 40,000 vehicles for a fuel leak defect which can lead to a fire hazard. The recall stems from defective plastic parts that may crack and lead to a fuel leak in warm-weather states. Specifically, the plastic parts connected to the fuel pump may wear and crack in these warmer climates. The obvious concern is that a large crack near the fuel pump can result in fuel leakage and a possible fire.
According to Reuters, Honda Motor Co. has issued a recall of approximately 1.5 million vehicles in the United States and more than 130,000 in Canada to fix a problem with the transmission software. Company officials said that if the transmission was quickly shifted between gears, the transmission could become damaged. The recall covers four-cylinder Accords, the CR-V Crossover and the Honda Element.
