General Motors Corp. recalling SUVs because of corrosion on latch

Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) _ General Motors Corp. said Friday it was recalling about 100,000 sport utility vehicles in 20 northern states because corrosion can affect latches on the two backseat doors, potentially allowing the doors to open while the vehicle is being driven.

The recall involves the 2002-2003 models of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL and the 2003 model of the Isuzu Ascender.

In some cases, slush, water and salt has passed through a seal at the base of the door and come in contact with the door's latch. Over time, it can cause corrosion and make the door not latch properly, said GM spokesman Alan Adler.

Adler said there has been one unconfirmed report of injuries related to the problem. GM did not have any details on what happened.

The recall is expected to begin during January 2006.

It will be conducted in 20 states and the District of Columbia where the vehicles were sold or registered. The states include Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin.
