article imageGM recalls SUVs for faulty gas gauges

By Joe Duarte     May 5, 2014 in Technology
Detroit - General Motors is recalling more of its vehicles, though this time it isn’t something as controversial as the recent “faulty ignition switch” recall that was linked to 13 deaths.
This time around, the company is recalling 51,640 sport-utility vehicles (2,191 of which are in Canada) to fix a faulty fuel gauge that could lead to inaccurate readings in 2014 model year Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia models.
Reportedly off by as much as a quarter tank at the top and bottom end of the gauge, the problem could lead to the driver’s unawareness as the vehicle runs out of fuel, which would cause it to stall and lead to reduced assist for braking and steering, and potentially result in a crash.
The automaker discovered the problem during field evaluations and said dealers will reprogram the engine control systems in order to recalibrate the digital gauge.
