General Motors recalls thousands of 2012 models to fix safety problems

General Motors is recalling more than 16,000 2012 Chevrolet Impala and Buick LaCrosse models in the U.S. and Canada to fix safety problems.

GM says that 11,915 Impalas are being recalled in the U.S. and Canada because a power steering fluid hose gets too close to the catalytic converter. The hose can melt, and fluid can leak and start a fire.

The auto maker said that it knows of no complaints or injuries. The large sedans were built from April 19 through July 29.

GM is also recalling 4,293 LaCrosse sedans in the U.S. and Canada to fix software that runs a computer that controls the brakes. The software may not detect a malfunctioning sensor. If the sensor fails, it could change the way the car handles and cause a crash. However, GM said that no crashes have been reported as a result of the software.
