General Motors is recalling some 570,000 Chevrolet and GMC pickups, vans and SUVs because
of problems with the vehicles’ power mirrors.
The vehicles that are affected include the
1997-98 Chevrolet and GMC Suburbans, 1997 Chevrolet Blazer and GMC Jimmy midsize SUVs, 1998
Chevrolet C/K and GMC Sierra pickups, and 1998 Chevrolet Astro and GMC Safari vans.
mirrors on the vehicles will require an electrical patch to circumvent a short circuit that
has caused 67 electrical fires in door and trim panels in the affected vehicles.
injuries also have been reported. GM will fix the vehicles free of charge.
