GM Issues Third Recall For Some Vehicles

For a third time, General Motors is recalling nearly 1.5 million older model vehicles that can leak oil and catch fire.

That's because repairs from the first two recalls didn't work.

The recall involves the 1997 to 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix and Buick Regal, the 2000 to 2004 Chevrolet Impala, the 1998 and 1999 Chevrolet Lumina and Oldsmobile Intrigue and the 1998 to 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo all with V-6 engines.


GM says more than 1,300 cars have caught fire since being fixed by dealers and customers have reported at least 19 minor injuries.

In the previous recalls in 2008 and 2009, GM told owners to park the cars outside until repairs can be made since most of the fires happened shortly after drivers turned off the engines. 

According to a spokesman, GM hasn't come up with a final fix for this most recent recall.
