GM recalls 36,000 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain SUVs
LOS ANGELES (KFSN) -- General Motors is recalling more than 36,000 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossover SUVs due to faulty tire pressure monitors.
The company says the systems in the 2012 vehicles should warn drivers when tire pressure drops 25 percent below the recommended pressure. But in the recalled vehicles, the warning light doesn't come on until the tire pressure falls more than 25 percent.
Federal safety regulators say underinflated tires can overheat, which could lead to a blowout and a crash.
There are no reports of crashes or injuries.
The recalled vehicles were built between July 18 and Sept. 6 of 2011.
Owners should bring their vehicles to the dealer to get the tire pressure monitor fixed. Dealers will update a computer that controls the monitors free of charge.
