Recall of General Motors Trucks Due to Fire Hazard

An article on CNN.com has reported that General Motors (GM) is recalling 370,000 trucks because of a fire risk.

The models being recalled are 2014 Chevy Silverados and GMC Sierra full-size trucks. The vehicles could have problems with their software that could lead to the overheating of exhaust components that could then lead to a fire.

In the article, GM confirmed that eight fires have come about from this issue. But so far, there are no injuries. GM said the fires occurred in areas where there has been very cold weather.

The automaker is alerting owners by mail. Owners can take their vehicles to dealerships for free repairs. Until the repairs are made, owners are advised not to let their vehicles idle while unattended.
