In mid-June, General Motors expanded last August’s recall of 250,000 SUVs due to the safety risks posed by the driver’s door window shorting out and catching fire. According to a USA Today report, GM expanded the recall to 200,000 additional vehicles: The 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL; and the 2006-2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, Saab 9-7x, and Isuzu Ascender. Apparently, moisture can get into the door and compromise the electronics, which can in turn short circuit and overheat. As a result, the door can smoke or even catch on fire.
