    WASHINGTON -- General Motors Corp. is recalling 944,000 vehicles because of a problem with the windshield wiper fluid system that could lead to a fire.

    The recall involves more than 850,000 sport utility vehicles, trucks and passenger cars in the U.S. and nearly 100,000 vehicles in Canada, Mexico and the Middle East.

    It involves the 2008 Buick Enclave, 2006-2008 Buick Lucerne, 2006-2008 Cadillac DTS, versions of the 2007-2008 Cadillac Escalade, 2007-2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Tahoe and Suburban, 2007-2008 GMC Acadia, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL, 2006-2008 Hummer H2 and 2007-2008 Saturn Outlook.

    The recall involves vehicles with a heated washer fluid system. A short circuit in the system could cause electrical features to malfunction.

    There have been nine reports of fires, but no accidents or injuries.

    I'll have to remember this when I go to buy a newer pickup in about 8 years..

    It seems I run about that far behind my vehicle purchases. My newest vehicle is a '96. I can still see the engine, and recognize the major components!!
    I fish for a living, but I have to work for money...
