Fuel Reading Error Spurs Recall of Over 50,000 GM SUV's


Automaker GM has issued another recall, this time, for more than 50,000 SUV's because of possible false readings on fuel gauges.

GM said a software problem could lead to a faulty reading on both the empty and full ends of the range by as much as a quarter of a tank. The false readings could cause drivers to run out of fuel without any warning, putting the vehicle at risk of stalling and increasing the chance of a crash.

This recall involves 2014 models of the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia.

If your car is included under the recall, take it to your dealer. The auto company said dealers will reprogram the software for free starting immediately.
