On Wednesday, GM and federal safety regulators announced another 218,000 recalls. This time it was the Aveo, a subcompact car. The reason: risk of overheating and fires. The car was also sold under the name the Chevy Optra in the U.S.
The overheating is in a daytime running lamp module. GM said it is aware of an unspecified number of fires associated with the problem, but no injuries or deaths.
