General Motors, Isuzu

DETROIT — General Motors and Isuzu are recalling more than 258,000 SUVs to fix short-circuits in power-window and door-lock switches that can cause fires.

The recall covers 2006-07 Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 97-X SUVs. The SUVs were sold or registered in areas where salt and chemicals are used to clear roads in the winter.

The corrosion can cause short-circuits, knocking out the switches and causing fires. Dealers will replace the-window switch free. Owners will get letters about when to schedule appointments.

Nissan JX

DETROIT — Nissan is recalling 7,800 Infiniti SUVs because the fuel gauges can show gas in the tank when there isn’t any.

The recall affects the 2013 JX35. A tube inside the gas tank could be in the wrong place, preventing a float from dropping as fuel is used, causing an inaccurate reading on the gauge.

Nissan will fix the problem free. Owners will be notified, and repairs will start Sept. 4.

Nissan Versa

DETROIT — Safety regulators are investigating the Nissan Versa subcompact because an air bag might fail to inflate in crashes. A recall has not yet been issued.

About 100,000 of the 2012 Versas are affected. A cable can get pinched in the steering column and set off a warning light.

Dodge Durango

DETROIT — Chrysler is recalling nearly 1,700 of its 2013 Dodge Durango SUVs because the rear side air bags might not work in a crash.

The Durangos might have been built with the wrong air bag control module.

Chrysler says it will notify owners and replace the module free of charge beginning next month.
