87,000 Subcompact Cars Recalled by GM
General Motors Corp. on Monday recalled 87,000 Chevrolet Cavalier, Oldsmobile Firenza, Buick Skyhawk and Cadillac Cimarron subcompact cars for removal of a plastic ornament that could cause an engine fire.
The cars, which share GM’s J-body platform, are 1985 models. GM said a plastic cap that fits over the air cleaner and is stamped with the words “2.0 Liter Fuel Injection” should be removed and thrown away. Owners can do this easily and do not have to take their cars to dealers, the company said.
GM 14 months ago recalled 34,000 Cavaliers with the same problem.
