One of the most popular vehicle manufacturers, General Motors, recently announced that many Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras are being recalled. The 2014 model year trucks that are affected have either a 4.3 or 5.3 Liter engine. The recall is due to a potential engine fire hazard as a result of exhaust components overheating while the truck idles in cold weather. Metro-Atlanta has experienced frigid temperatures lately, so this potential automobile defect could affect many around the area. If you or someone you know may be affected by this automobile recall, contact Chevrolet or GMC immediately to have the issue addressed for free.
