Hooray! More crossovers!

The North American International Auto Show is looking like a crossover-heavy expo.

Kogod's 2016 index goes beyond the window sticker data to determine how much of your car was built in the USA.

As many as 135,000 GM SUV owners may be reimbursed.

GM will pay back some SUV owners for mistakes in MPG window stickers. The affected models include the Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave.

What's the difference between a 2016 and 2015 GM SUV, really?

Consumer Reports says that if GM's 2016 model year SUVs have incorrect MPG numbers on their stickers, then the 2015 and 2014 SUVs are probably wrong, too.

2016 model year Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave all affected.

GM says that a mistake was made in printing the MPG label for three of its SUVs, resulting in claimed numbers that were higher than is accurate.

Nearly 32,000 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia crossovers from 2016 face a recall because of a fire hazard with their windshield wiper motors. GM is asking owners not to use the wipers until the problem is fixed.

Chevrolet is adding a fourth crossover to its model line that will slot between the Equinox and the Traverse.

GM is recalling 686,000 Lambda-platform crossovers to fix a problem that can cause the power hatchback to fail. The campaign affects the 2008-2012 Buick Enclave, 2009-2012 Chevrolet Traverse, 2007-2012 GMC Acadia, and 2007-2010 Saturn Outlook.

GM is following up its Lambda-platform CUV stop-sale for possible cracks in their 18-inch Goodyear Fortera HL tires with a recall covering 5,876 examples of the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave. Goodyear already recalled about 48,512 of the tires.

GM has issued a stop-sale on a number of its Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave crossovers following a pending recall by tire supplier Goodyear.

Considering that crossovers are a rapidly growing portion of the US auto market, it's not surprising to hear that General Motors is preparing to build even more of them. The company is investing $63 million to expand its Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant that builds Lambda platform CUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.

Is your vehicle under recall?

It seems General Motors can't go more than a few weeks without issuing a major recall. Since the initial ignition lock recall on February 10, over 25 million vehicles have been recalled for defects.

General Motors has now recalled over 15 million cars worldwide this year due to various issues

General Motors has announced another set of recalls, covering some 2.42 million cars in the United States. For those keeping track, The General has now recalled over 15 million cars worldwide this year due to various issues.

With all eyes fixed on General Motors in the wake of the ignition recall debacle, the auto giant has been carefully calling in a wide array of vehicles to fix anything and everything that could prove problematic. Just the other day it issued two separate recalls – one concerning the Cadillac SRX and another its heavy-duty pickups – and now it is issuing another.

Slowly but surely, General Motors is learning quite a few lessons from its recent ignition-switch recall fiasco. A recent timeline submitted by the company to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that it took six years to issue a recent recall on several crossovers.

Still embroiled in the ongoing ignition switch recall, General Motors announced today three more discrete recalls, affecting a grand total of 1,546,900 vehicles in the US. The Detroit News reports that some 1.7 million vehicles are affected overall in North America.
