GM to recall 1.5 million vehicles over safety concerns

©

Latest update : 2009-04-14

According to US media, General Motors will have to recall close to 1.5 million cars built between 1997 and 2003 due to safety concerns. The recall includes certain models from GM's Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile and Pontiac brands.

AFP - Troubled US automaker General Motors has informed watchdogs it will have to recall close to 1.5 million cars amid concerns they could catch fire, local media reported.

Television network CNN said the firm had reported a potential fuel leak in some autos built between 1997 and 2003.

The recall includes certain models from GM's Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile and Pontiac brands.

The Detroit-based firm -- which already faces bankruptcy proceedings -- said the fault could see oil leak on the exhaust manifold during hard braking.

On March 30, the US government gave GM, which has received 13.4 billion dollars in public aid, 60 days to come up with an aggressive restructuring plan to be eligible for further aid the company says it needs to avoid collapse.
