GM Recalling Thousands Of Vehicles Over Faulty Battery Control Module


Thousands of General Motor vehicles are being recalled because of a defective battery control module.

According to GM, some vehicles have a malfunctioning generator control module that could cause the battery to lose power and stall the engine, or worse, cause the module to overheat and spark a fire. So far there have been two trunk fires reported, both which occurred within the first 1,000 miles. No injuries have been reported.

The recall affects 38,197 2012 and 2013-model Chevrolet Malibu Eco, Buick LaCrosse and Buick Regal sedans. This only includes models equipped with the eAssist hybrid system.

GM says it will notify owners and do repairs for free.
