Recall Alert: 2009 Hummer H3T

Recall Alert: 2009 Hummer H3T

General Motors is recalling 1,738 new 2009 Hummer H3T pickups to fix a problem that may cause the fuel tank to separate from the truck. There are two support straps and a skid plate that hold the tank in place but the front strap may break, leaving only the shield and rear strap to support the tank. Continued use of the truck raises the odds those restraints could break too, dropping the tank from the truck.

According to GM, the strap fracture problem has only been seen in captive test fleet trucks used for durability testing.

Dealers are expected to swap the current front support strap with a redesigned strap free of charge. Owners can contact Hummer at 1-800-732-5493 or obtain information online at http://www.gmownercenter.com.

The recall is National Highway Traffic Safety Administration campaign ID number 09V080000

Thanks General Motors for that nice initiative! Raser Technologies is taking a good thing and then doing something awesome with it. Raser Technologies just made a hybrid car out of a Hummer. The company has unveiled a plug in hybrid edition of the Hummer H3, a bold move in any case. Raser, now traded on the NYSE, is the company behind the E-REV engine, an extended range electric engine that will go up to 40 miles per charge when fully electric, and gets up to 100 mpg when using hybrid driving. It will take some hefty personal loans, though – available in 2011, and if the previous cost of a Hummer was prohibitive, it ought to take some hefty installment loans to get one from Raser Technologies.
