DETROIT (AP) - General Motors and Isuzu are recalling more than 258,000 SUVs in the U.S. and Canada to fix short-circuits in power window and door lock switches that can cause fires.

The recall covers Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 97-X SUVs from the 2006 and 2007 model years. The SUVs were sold or registered in 20 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and Canada, where salt and other chemicals are used to clear roads in the winter.

GM has reports of 28 fires, and it doesn't know of any injuries caused by the problem.

Fluid can get inside the driver's door and cause corrosion in the power window and door switch circuit boards, GM said in documents posted on the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. The corrosion can cause short-circuits, knocking out the switches and causing fires.

1. They used to have these knobs

That you yourself could roll the window down or up. It never stops working for the most part, and if it does, it's cheap to fix, and no fear of fire. Auto windows and locks should be optional.
