General Motors recalls part causing failure in vehicle’s lift gates

DETROIT, (AP) – General Motors is recalling nearly 800,000 crossover vehicles over a defect found in the lift gate.

GM stated that dirt can get into the struts that hold up the gate, causing them to wear and fall too quickly.

The recall covers the 2008 to 2012 Buick Enclave, the 2009 to 2012 Chevrolet Traverse, the 2007 to 2012 GMC Acadia and 2007 to 2010 Saturn Outlook.

Dealers will replace the faulty struts and update lift gate control motor software to prevent rapid closing.

There are no known crashes or deaths related to the issue, but at least 56 people have been hurt.
