Due to an inaccurate fuel gauge reading

General Motors (GM) is currently facing a lot of recall problems, like the ignition switch defect recall it issued on April 2014.

More recently, GM recalled the Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra due to lagging acceleration and faulty fuel pipe connections.

Today, the American car maker is recalling 51,640 units of the 2014 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia crossovers, manufactured from March 26, 2013 to Aug. 25, 2013, because the engine control module (ECM) has been found to inaccurately display the fuel level in the tank.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an inaccurate fuel gauge may result in the vehicle unexpectedly run out of fuel, increasing the risk of a crash.

As a remedy, GM will notify owners and dealers. The automaker will also reprogram the ECM to correct the fuel gauge reading.

However, GM has not yet released a notification schedule.
