DETROIT March 14, 2008; The AP reported that General Motors Corp. said it is recalling more than 207,000 Buick Regal and Pontiac Grand Prix sedans because they can develop oil leaks that can cause fires.

GM says the cars are safe to drive, but drivers should not park them in garages or carports.

The automaker said Friday the recall affects 1997 to 2003 Buick Regal GS and Grand Prix GDP models with 3.8-liter supercharged V-6 engines.

GM says oil can leak onto the exhaust manifold if a driver brakes hard. If the oil gets hot enough it can catch fire.

It says the problem has caused 267 fires and six injuries.

The company says owners will be notified when parts are available to fix the problem.
