The Reuters/Yahoo blurb below continued the tradition of refusing
to ask for an independent apraisal of the injury/death statistics.
General Motors Corp. said on February 9, 2004 that it will
recall about 636,0000
mid-size sport utility vehicles, its second major recall
in four days.
GM, the world's largest automaker, said there had been two reports
related to electronics that could short-circuit when water leaks into
a wiper module.
No injuries or fatalities were reported from those two crashes,
The recall includes certain model year 2002 and 2003 Chevrolet
TrailBlazer EXT, GMC Envoy and Envoy XL, and Oldsmobile Bravada
SUV models as well as some Isuzu Motors Ascenders, which GM builds,
GM said in a
statement. A Bravada is seen in this April 2000 file photo.
