DETROIT General Motors Corp., the largest U.S. automaker, is recalling 48,944 Saturn Vue and Chevrolet Captiva sport utility vehicles to tighten a nut that may allow steering fluid to leak, which can lead to a fire.
The voluntary recall affects 2008 and 2009 model-year Vues and Captivas, GM told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. GM received reports of four fires related to the recalled Saturns. There have been no reports of accidents or injuries, the company said.
Vue and Captiva owners will be notified beginning Sept. 26 to take their SUVs to a dealership where the nut will be tightened and steering-fluid levels checked, GM said.
