GM is urging owners of the 2021 Savana to park outside and away from anything that could burn until the vans get repaired. Late last year they said the van's batteries could drain when the positive battery cable accidently came in contact with the fuse block assembly. Now they're saying it's less drain, more flame—as in at least four vans have gone up in smoke due to the batteries short-circuiting.

  • The affected vehicles all have the 6.6L engine. There are 10,154 affected vans in the US and 877 in Canada. This also includes the Chevrolet Express.
  • The recall (#N202325160) is expected to begin on May 3rd, 2021.
