2009 Hummer H2
Another GM Hummer Reaches A Recall For A Repair
Yet another GM model is going to be having to be issued for a recall. This is already the third time AGM model is retracting one of the cars back for repair. Sometimes these issues are usually related to the mechanics, but this time, the 2009 Hummer H2 is going to have to be repaired because it carries the risk of putting the entire car on to flames. The danger needs to be remedied immediately so that the drivers will be able to continue driving safely and enjoy their Hummer experience.
How large is the scale of this recall?
GM had to face a serious recall issue since it was forced to turn back in around 1.5 million cars, trucks and other vehicles which have gone into production since there 2006 dating to the year 2009. This huge amount of cars had to be turned into get repairs but, only the 2009 Hummer H2 was at the serious risk of actually endangering a driver’s life.
How many cars have been turned in?
This was a model which afflicted around 1,000,000 cars worldwide, although the most of them were located in the United States of America. The flaw which has been detected on the car luckily didn’t result with any fatalities or serious injuries. GM was able to record a few started fires which came as a result of this particular issue.
Did this model get a repair before?
The only problem is the fact that GM already attempted to fix this issue back in 2008, and the fact that the model is now requesting another recall for the same reason is potentially worrying, since the fix they have implemented almost 6 years ago didn’t seem to work out that help improve the quality of the car in any way. This is extremely risky for GM, as these constant repairs and recalls are definitely affecting its reputation and might seem like the 2009 Hummer H2 is not at all a reliable vehicle for anyone.
What is the issue?
The problem is in the heated water fuel system which holds the risk to ignite itself under certain circumstances. Right after this issue has been discovered, GM has issued a recall to help the drivers quickly get out of the way of the danger this threat holds. The 2009 Hummer H2 is going to pull models back in for free repair after which the drivers will be able to go back to the road without the risk of igniting the entire car while they drive. The entire Hummer brand is slowly shutting down because of these issues and some other financial aspects which can be fulfilled, so unless a major breakthrough happens to save the reputation of this brand, we will soon have to bid farewell to it.
