General Motors Recalls Nearly 780,000 SUV’s

General Motors recently announced they're recalling nearly 780,000 of their Sport Utility Vehicles  in North America due to faulty rear power lift gates. It has been reported that dirt can get into these gas struts that hold up rear lift gates causing them to wear and prematurely fail. This can cause the lift gate to suddenly fall and hit people causing injury.

No accidents have been reported from this issue but so far General Motors does have 56 reported incidents where a person has been injured.

This recall affects SUV's sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Affected models being recalled are:

2009 Chevrolet Traverse
2010 Chevrolet Traverse
2011 Chevrolet Traverse
2012 Chevrolet Traverse

2007 GMC Acadia
2008 GMC Acadia
2009 GMC Acadia
2010 GMC Acadia
2011 GMC Acadia
2012 GMC Acadia

2007 Saturn Outlook
2008 Saturn Outlook
2009 Saturn Outlook

2011 Saturn Outlook
2012 Saturn Outlook

2008 Buick Enclave
2009 Buick Enclave
2010 Buick Enclave
2011 Buick Enclave
2012 Buick Enclave

GM has stated their SUV's built from March 2012 and on the rear struts are placed in a different location that is far less susceptible to acquiring dirt particles.
