General Motors’ solution for cars at risk of catching fire is simple: Don’t park in the garage. (At least until they figure out a fix.)
Most of the 1.4 million older cars that are at risk of having oil drip down onto the manifold in their engine and catch fire have already been recalled at least once. But 1,345 of the cars that were repaired in those earlier recalls subsequently caught fire anyway. So GM has recalled them again.
