GM Recalls Nearly 106,000 SUVs

DETROIT, Oct 28, 2005; Reuters reported that General Motors Corp. said on Friday that it was recalling nearly 106,000 sport utility vehicles in the United States and Canada to fix a rear door latch that may not close properly due to corrosion.

Alan Adler, a spokesman for the world's largest automaker, said the 105,893 vehicles affected by the potential safety defect included Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL SUVs from the 2002-2003 model years.

He said one alleged injury had been caused by the faulty door latch.

A small number of 2003 model Isuzu Ascender SUVs are also affected, Adler said. GM builds the Ascender for Isuzu Motors Ltd. .

A total of about 98,000 of the recalled vehicles were registered or sold in Northeast and Midwest U.S. states, where corrosion can occur due to winter road salt.

An estimated 7,893 vehicles sold in eastern Canada are also affected, Adler said.
