Holden recalls 2,000 Hummer H3s due to safety risks

GM Holden’s Hummer H3 vehicles are being recalled in Australia as they do not conform with Australian Motor Vehicle compliance requirements, and could pose potential safety risks.

The Hummer H3s were made by GM Holden’s South African manufacturing arm.

1,957 Hummer H3s from 2007 to 2009 with campaign number L-100260 are being recalled nationally.

In affected vehicles, the front indicator lights and rear indicators (if a trailer is towed) may not warn the vehicle operator if an indicator bulb may not be operating.

According to Product Safety Recalls Australia, this defect makes the units unfit for sale in Australia.  

GM Holden says it will contact owners of affected vehicles by letter.

Owners can also contact their authorised dealership for reworking of the main engine wiring harness, Product Safety Recalls Australia said.
