GM Recalls Chevy Tahoe Pursuit Vehicles For Possible Fire Risk

General Motors has announced a new safety campaign that covers certain Chevrolet Tahoe Police Pursuit vehicles.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which was informed on this recall, the affected models are from the 2010-2014 model years and have been manufactured from August 24, 2009, to December 1, 2013.

These SUVs, which carry the special equipment options for police and government service, “may experience corrosion of the under-hood cooling fan assembly due to fluid intrusion, which may result in an electrical short circuit“, as the feds explain, which “increases the risk of a fire“. However, since the report is missing additional data, it’s unknown whether this condition has caused any fires in the field.

The North American company said that the next step will be to inform owners of the latest recall, with dealers to replace the fan motor and shroud, extend the wiring and re-orient the fan motor to reduce the risk of corrosion, at no cost. A recall notification schedule has yet to be provided, but owners can contact the Chevrolet Customer Service at 1-800-222-1020, or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
