General Motors is recalling more than 97,500 late-model cars for electrical issues that put the cars at risk of stalling.

In the affected cars, the chassis electric module may be internally contaminated, resulting in an electrical short. If this happens, the vehicle could stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

The affected cars include the 2013-2014 Cadillac CTS, Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and GMC Yukon XL and the 2014 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Express, Chevrolet Impala, Chevrolet Silverado HD, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, GMC Savana and GMC Sierra.

GM will notify owners of the recall, but the company has not yet provided a notification schedule. Dealers will replace the chassis electronic module, free of charge.

For more information, owners can contact GM customer service at (800) 521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), and 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14515.
