Saturn recalls 240,000 L-Series models
Detroit, Michigan – General Motors is recalling 239,993 Saturn L-Series sedans and wagons, model years 2000 to 2003, to replace an ignition control module that might fail causing rough idling and difficulty starting. Continued operation of the vehicle may lead to secondary failures of the catalytic converter, oxygen sensor, and exhaust resonator. Saturn dealers will fix the problem free of charge.
General Motors is also recalling 94,866 Buick Rendezvous, model years 2002 and 2003, to fix the supports for the rear liftgate which may fail in a crash.
Honda is recalling approximately 247,000 CR-V SUV, model years 2002 and 2003, to fix a part of the shift cable that could rust and prevent the transmission from shifting into Park.
Suzuki is recalling 5,319 Esteem, Grant Vitaras, and XL-7s because the windshield may not be properly secured to the vehicle body due to insufficient adhesion. If the windshield is not properly secured, it may separate from the vehicle during a crash, which could result in the ejection of unbelted occupants.
