GM's Saturn to Recall 254,000 Vehicles For Fire RiskJun 24, 2003 | AFP
General Motors' Saturn division announced its largest product recall ever, saying some 254,000 of its L-series sedans and wagons need repairs for potential fire hazards.
The recall affects just the 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine model sold in the United States and Canada.
GM will replace the ignition module and spark plugs, saying the problem vehicles may misfire which could lead to failures in the exhaust system.
"If the initial condition is not remedied and the vehicle continues to be driven, there could be further damage to the brakes, fuel system, or other underbody components," GM said. "Continued driving could result in an under car fire. There have been seven reports of fires related to the condition, but no crashes, serious injuries, or fatalities."
