The vehicles are Chevy Trailblazers, GMC Envoys, Buick Rainiers, Saab 9-7x, and Isuzu Ascenders. Moisture in the driver’s door may cause a short circuit in the switch, which can lead to overheating and potentially fire. GM is offering a free repair to all owners of the recalled vehicles, and recommends parking the vehicles outdoors until the repair has been made. Similar issues have resulted in recalls by several other auto manufacturers in recent years.
Have you or a loved one been injured in an accident that was caused by a defective motor vehicle? Contact an experienced Denver product liability lawyer immediately to discuss your options.
Every year, there are over 5 million traffic accidents across the United States. These crashes have a wide variety of causes. While the number that are caused by defective tires or auto parts is relatively small, because these failures are completely unexpected, and often happen while the vehicle is in motion, they can be incredibly destructive. In some cases, the people hurt the most in these kinds of accidents are not even in the vehicle. Pedestrians or people in other vehicles may be even more seriously injured. Vehicles that suffer from defective parts may also crash into buildings, causing massive property damage.
