Vehicles Affected: About 51,640 model-year 2014 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia crossovers manufactured between March 26, 2013, and Aug. 15, 2013.

The Problem: The engine control module software may cause the fuel gauge to read inaccurately, which could result in the vehicle unexpectedly running out of fuel and stalling, increasing the risk of a crash. In March, GM recalled 1.3 million of these same three vehicles, in addition to the Saturn Outlook, all from the 2008-2013 model years, due to a problem with the side- and front-center airbags and seat belt pretensioners that could cause those devices not to a deploy.

The Fix: GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the engine control module to correct the fuel gauge reading for free. The automaker has not provided a notification schedule.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Buick at 800-521-7300, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov for more info.
