GM recalling 51,640 Buick, Chevrolet and GMC SUVs for defective fuel gauges

General Motors is recalling 51,640 SUVs because the fuel gauges may show inaccurate readings.

The recall involves the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia from the 2014 model year. All of the affected SUVs were built between March 26 and Aug. 15 of 2013.

GM says the engine control module software may cause the fuel gauge to read inaccurately. If that happens, the vehicle might run out of fuel and stall without warning.

The company doesn't know of any crashes or injuries related to the problem.
GM says dealers will reprogram the software for free, starting immediately. The company will also notify owners by mail.

The recall was posted Saturday on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Web site.

    GM will soon enough once again cause economic problems in North America. All these massive recals. The cars are mega ugly they are not reliable the interiors are pathetic. I went last week with a buddy to GM to look at cars. What a dissapointment. They are soo expensive for what u get. If u compare it is pointless to go GM. Only the Buick interiors have something going on. The rest are sad. Sorry GM. They should have never bailed out GM financially. They still make the same crappy ass cars. What a shame. And waste of taxpayers money. I dont understand why.
