2008 Saturn Vue recalled for sticky door handles

General Motors, in its last rites for a dying division, has issued a recall for 44,451 Saturn Vue crossovers, all 2008 models, with body-color outside door handles. The outside door handles may stick or bind. If this were to occur, the door may not latch when closed.

According to the NHTSA, driving with an unlatched door could result in an unbelted occupant falling out of the vehicle, causing increased risk of injury.

Dealers will replace the outside door handles with chrome door handles free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before August 18, 2009. Owner may contact Saturn at 1-800-972-8876, although it is questionable how many owners would want to stick gaudy chrome door handles on their vehicles.
