GM Recalls Trailblazer for Fire Hazards
In continuing coverage, ABC World News (8/19, story 5, 0:30, Muir) reported, "We move on to a consumer alert, General Motor and Isuzu recalling 250,000 SUVs because of a possible short circuit that can cause fires." According to the segment, "the recall includes five models including the Chevrolet Trailblazer from 2006 and 2007." The recall was prompted by concerns that "chemicals that clear roads of snow and ice can get inside the driver's door and short circuit the switches controlling power windows and door locks." To date, 28 fires have been reported, though, no injuries have been linked to the defect.
