GM Recalls 370,000 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra Pickup Trucks for Fire Danger

General Motors is recalling 370,000 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks due to a software malfunction that causes an idling truck heat up to levels that can start a fast-moving fire, melting plastic parts and leading to total destruction of the vehicle.
Truck owners are to report to a GM dealership as soon as possible for a no-charge fix, which should only take half an hour, according to GM spokesman Alan Adler. In the meantime, owners are warned not to let their vehicle idle.
