GM is now recalling 1.4 million cars after learning that oil leaks in certain cars can cause fires. There have been reports of oil leaking while cars are parked, causing fires and setting garages and homes a blaze. This comes after 2 previous oil fire recalls didn't fix the defect. GM does not have a solution to the problem yet and are simply telling people to park outside. The current cars in the GM Oil Fire recall include:
-1997-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix
-2000-2004 Chevrolet Impala
-1998-1999 Chevrolet Lumina
-1998-2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
-1998-1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue
-1997-2004 Buick Regal
It is not known exactly how many injuries or how much property damage is currently linked to these defective GM cars. The issue with the latest fire recall is that the valve cover gasket can degrade, which allows oil to spill out. Then oil drops can leak into the exhaust and then a fire begins. There are reports of fire catching about 5 minutes after they are parked. In cases where owners suffer injuries due to GM Fire Recall Cars, owners may potentially receive compensation for your past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, disability, lost income. Also, there may be compensation for property damages in cases where a recalled GM car catches a garage, car port or home on fire.
