General Motors announced Wednesday it would recall all Hummer H3’s produced since the 2006 model year, citing concerns over a faulty bonnet catch, the AP reported.
There are an estimated 3,500 affected Hummers in the UAE, according to local media.
GM expressed concerns that the defective catch, known as a louvre, could become loose and break off while driving, acting as a projectile to strike another vehicle, the report said.
More than 198,000 cars worldwide are included in the recall , which affects 2006 to 2010 models of the H3 and 2009 to 2010 models of the H3T.
