NEWS: GM Recalls 30,000-Plus SUVs, Vans

Bloomberg News -- Aug 11, 2007 --- General Motors has recalled 20,594 sport-utility vehicles and minivans from 2001 to 2004 to replace fuel tanks that may leak and cause fire. The recall includes some 2002 to 2004 Chevrolet Venture vans and Buick Rendezvous SUVs, and 2001 to 2004 Pontiac Aztek SUVs and Pontiac Montana vans, the company told the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

A tank valve can fracture because of manufacturing variations or high temperatures, allowing fuel to leak, the agency said. The tanks will be replaced free, GM said. No related injuries or accidents have been reported.

GM also recalled 10,113 of its 2007 Chevrolet Express 1500 and GMC Savana 1500 large vans to reprogram an antilock brake part. The rear brake may stay engaged when the brake pedal isn't pressed, and the brake lights may not illuminate, the NHTSA said.

Vehicles built in April and May of this year are affected. They are under warranty, GM said. There have been no injuries or accidents related to the brake part.
