GM told the U.S. vehicle safety regulator National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it will recall certain model year 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave SUVs manufactured between Aug. 18, 2015 to Sept. 24, 2015.

The front windshield wiper motor cover may melt, smoke or catch fire due to overheating in some cases.

GM said about 6,400 of the SUVs with faulty wiper motors were sold to customers while the rest are being held at dealerships.
