General Motors is apparently recalling 1.5 million cars and trucks to correct a problem with the heating system for washer fluid.
We see the recall numbers come in every week, and the hundreds of thousands of vehicles is pretty common. 1.5 million vehicles over more than 3 model years is not that common, nor is it common to see a recall because of a fire hazard affect so many vehicles. It will be interesting to see how much play this gets, given the recent furor over Toyota recalls.
