The Times notes that these vehicles may suffer from electrical shorts due to bits of metal in the chassis control module. Depending on the volume of metal and the severity of the shorts, the flaw could prevent vehicles from starting, or even cause them to stall while in motion. To date, GM knows of no accidents or injuries related to the problem.
Of the nearly 118,000 vehicles affected by the recall, 98,000 are registered in the U.S., with the remainder registered in Canada, Mexico and other markets.
General Motors hasn't yet published a timeline for the recall or what the potential fix might be. We'll keep you posted as the story progresses.
