GM Recalls 1.5 Million Vehicles Due to Fire Danger

This is not what any of the Big 3 US automakers need right now, another auto recall due to the potential for fires. In the midst of a declining US auto industry that has caught the attention and scrutiny of the federal government, bad press is not what the industry needs.
Yet, General Motors has issued a large recall of some vehicles that aren’t even in production. The recall includes the 1998-1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue, the 1997-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix, 1997-2003 Buick Regal, and the 1998-2003 Chevrolet Lumina, Monte Carlo and Impala.
All of the vehicles in question have a 3.8 liter V-6 engine and the danger concerns oil that can spill into the exhaust potentially igniting sparks or a fire. In spite of the recall, GM says there have been no reported injuries or fires with any of the vehicles.
