DETROIT (WKZO) -- Bursting into flames spontaneously is never an attractive feature in a new vehicle, and that’s why GM is recalling over 370-thousand Silverados and Sierra Pick-up trucks.

They say they can fix it with a simple software change.

In the meantime they are telling customers not to leave the vehicles idling unattended for extended periods of time. The exhaust systems overheat and spark a blaze.

\So far 8 of the trucks have caught fire but no one has been injured.
