GM recalling SUVs for defective fuel gauges

DETROIT--General Motors is recalling 57,131 SUVs because the fuel gauges may show inaccurate readings.
The recall involves the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia from the 2014 model year. All of the affected SUVs were built between March 26 and Aug. 15 of 2013.
GM says the engine control module software may cause the fuel gauge to read inaccurately. If that happens, the vehicle might run out of fuel and stall without warning.
The company doesn't know of any crashes or injuries related to the problem.
GM says dealers will reprogram the software for free, starting immediately.
The recall includes 3,275 SUVs exported to various countries, in addition to those sold in Canada and Mexico.
The recall was posted Saturday on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website.
