Perhaps They Should Have Tested More - GM

Not a GM Product

Recently General Motors recalled over 370,000 full-size pickup trucks due to a software problem that appears to have already caused 11 fires: copyrightjoestrazzere
  • Affects 2014 Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras
  • Could lead to overheating, potentially leading to engine compartment fire
  • GM has reports of 11 fires related to this bug
  • Until it is fixed, owners are advised not to let the truck idle
  • Problem uncovered in part because the recent extreme cold led to more idling
  • The 2014 Silverado is one of three finalists for North American Truck of the Year

Perhaps GM was idling too much, when they could have tested more.
