General Motors has recalled 1.5 million vehicles equipped with a heated washer fluid system that could catch fire. No replacement solution is available to the header washer fluid system so GM will give owners a $100 rebate for the loss of the feature.
Giving that GM is offering a $100 rebate for the customers who drive affected vehicles, that total sum will equal upwards of $150 million. I guess this is how you take care of your customers right?
GM previously recalled cars with the same system back in August of 2008 and ended up refusing to pay the supplier (Micro-Heat) of the faulty system. Micro-Heat was later forced to file for bankruptcy.
The affected vehicles include: 2006-2009 Buick Lucerne, Cadillac DTS, Hummer H2; the 2008-2009 Buick Enclave and Cadillac CTS; the 2007-2009 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Acadia, Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL, Saturn Outlook and the 2009 model year Chevrolet Traverse.
