DETROIT (WWJ) – General Motors is recalling around 3,200 natural gas-powered cargo vans because of the potential for a gas leak, which could cause a fire or explosion.
“Certain vehicles may have a CNG high-pressure regulator that can leak natural gas into the atmosphere,” read a statement from the carmaker. “Dealers or fleet operators will inspect and, if necessary, replace the regulator. Parts are on order and customers will be notified by letter when they are available.”READ MORE: 72-Year-Old Woman Stabbed At Hamilton Home By Person Who Knew Her
