GM Advises SUV Owners to Avoid Garages in 60th Recall

General Motors(DETROIT) -- General Motors is under scrutiny for yet another round of safety recalls, this time focusing on the power switches of several SUV models that could potentially catch fire when left unattended.

GM is advising owners of select SUVs to park their vehicles outdoors until the problem can be fixed.

Originally issued on June 30, but now updated with the fire risk, this is the third such recall for this group of automobiles, which includes the 2006 and 2007 model Chevy Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainer, Saab 97-X and Isuzu Ascender.

The recall covers approximately 189,000 vehicles, and is the 60th one issued this year.

GM has faced some negative repercussions from the nearly 29 million cars it has called back for automotive issues, including an 80 percent drop in second-quarter profits two weeks ago.
