Chevrolet’s Aveo, the subcompact built by Daewoo, is being recalled due to a daytime running lamp module that can melt due to heat generation and catch fire. Over 218,000 cars for the 2004-2008 model years are affected.
“We are aware of some fires,” says General Motors spokesman Alan Adler, who says the company “is still investigating.” He also indicated no injuries or fatalities have resulted thus far.
General Motors has said in a recall statement to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that a solution is still under development. In the meantime, if you are an Aveo owner, you will receive notification in the mail shortly, to be followed by a second letter to schedule a repair.
When GM Authority has an update, we will be sure to bring it to you.
