General Motors announced a recall for about 15,000 Buick LaCrossses and Chevrolet Impalas for two important problems.
Beginning with the 2012 Buick LaCrosse, GM said that 4,077 units are being recalled for a reprogramming of the electronic stability control. Apparently, there was an incorrect calibration of a sensor, which as a result can cause the system to not detect a malfunctioning sensor. If that occurs, a warning light won’t illuminate making the driver think that the system is active when it is not.
As for the Chevrolet Impala, 10,344 of them are being recalled. Those built between April 29th and July 29th are being issues a repair for the upper power steering housing. GM said that they have to reroute the system because heat from the catalytic converter can cause the part to fail resulting in the spraying of power steering fluid all over the cat causing smoke and a potential fire.
All of the owners of the cars affected will be notified from General Motors as they have them on record.
