Aug. 20, 2012—General Motors recalled the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT, the 2006 GMC Envoy XL, and 2006–2007 Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X vehicles. Fluid might enter the driver’s door module, which would allow corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short might cause the power-door lock and power-window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative. The short also might cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing odor, smoke or a fire. A short in the circuit board could lead to a fire, which would increase the risk of injury.
The vehicles that are involved in this recall originally were sold or are registered in District of Columbia and the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
GM will finalize the remedy. The company will notify Buick, Chevrolet, and GMC owners but hasn’t determined a notification schedule.
Owners may call Buick at 800/521-7300, Chevrolet at 866/694-6546, GMC at 866/996-9463, Isuzu at 800/255-6727 or Saab at 855/880-0808. Owners also may call National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888/327-4236 or go to safercar.gov.
