Florida defective product attorneys | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
Chevrolet owner General Motors recently issued a recall for more than 475,000 Chevrolet Cruze automobiles to correct fire problems in the engine compartments of these cars. The voluntary recall affects cars manufactured in the U.S. from September 2010 through May 2012. This is the fifth time that Cruze models have been recalled since their debut two years ago. James O. Cunningham and other Orlando personal injury lawyers are following this recall closely, as engine fires can cause deadly accidents. GM reports that the fire problems are caused by fluids dripping on a plastic shield below the engine. This shield can become quite hot during normal operation and if oil is not cleaned up properly after an oil change or engine top-off, the oil can drip down onto this shield and ignite.
