General Motors announced that it’s recalling 1,738 HUMMER H3Ts due to an issue with the fuel tank.
The 2009 HUMMER H3Ts are being recalled due to a “condition in which the fuel tank front support strap may fracture,” said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “If this occurs, the fuel tank would be supported by the rear support strap and stone shield only. Continued use of the vehicle may eventually fracture the rear support strap and shield fasteners. The fuel tank could separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.”
The recall comes as GM is attempting to unload the HUMMER brand to another party, the result of which will be announced by the end of the month. A total of nearly 300,000 vehicles are being recalled by GM, and those other than HUMMER are being recalled due to an issue with the gear shift that could cause parked vehicles to roll away.
Affected vehicles will be fixed free of charge, and to find out if your HUMMER H3T is affected, you can contact HUMMER at 1-800-732-5493.
