GM Driver Supportive Of GM Despite Recalls

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - This latest recall involves just over 200-thousand Chevy Aveos, with model years from 2004 through 2008.

GM says the daytime running light module in the dashboard center stack can overheat, melt and cause fires.

The company will provide a plan to fix the problem as soon as possible.

This recall brings the total number of GM’s recalled vehicles since January to 13.8 million, topping its annual record set on Tuesday.

This latest recall follows an announcement on Tuesday about a recall involving locally built vehicles, the Chevy Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia.

The company issued a stop sell order for new and used models of those vehicles until the problem is fixed. But officials stopped short of telling customers to stop driving them.

6 News Nick Perreault spoke with one of those customers today about their concerns over their recalled vehicle.

Almost every day, whether it's off to the doctors or out for groceries, Casey straps into her 2011 GMC Acadia

"My husband really wanted the Acadia and we went and looked at it and we thought it was spacious enough to fit kids in it,” said Casey Miller, Westphalia mom.

That was four years ago. Now this Westphalia mom of 3-year-old Chase, 1-year-old Peyton and another due in August says the latest recall involving safety belt cables that can wear out and separate over time has her attention.

"I mean now that it keeps getting recalled, I'm a little bit concerned about future recalls.”

But this mom says she's always had GM products and says until now she hasn't had any issues with her purchases.

"We're going to go get it fixed and hopefully they don't have any more recalls, but that's just something we're going to do.”

And despite the millions of cars recalled including her own GMC Acadia, Casey says she's still going to continue to drive her GMC product.

Miller believes the latest recalls by General Motors is the company being extra careful

"I think now they're just being cautious and they don't want anything else to happen.”

GM is working to protect those who drive and ride in GM products.
