GM defect causes recall of nearly 800K crossovers - USA TODAY

General Motors plans to recall 779,023 crossover vehicles worldwide after discovering a defect with a power lift-gate that caused at least 56 injuries. The automaker said the recall affects 686,287 vehicles in the U. S. that had the power lift-gate option installed: the 2007-10 Saturn Outlook, 2007-12 GMC Acadia, 2009-12 Chevrolet Traverse and 2008-12 Buick Enclave. GM spokesman Alan Adler said in an email that the lift-gate "may prematurely wear," causing it to fall too quickly. Though the defect has not caused any crashes or deaths, GM said at least 56 injuries can be blamed on the issue. Source:
