The Environmental Protection Agency Monday ordered General Motors Corporation to recall about 186,000 of its 1980 model cars for exceeding federal hydrocarbon emissions standards.
The agency gave the giant automaker 45 days to respond to the order. Once a plan is approved, General Motors will notify individual car owners, it said.
The recall order covers the 1980 Oldsmobile Delta 88 and 98, Toronado, Cutlass Supreme, Riveria, and Custom Cruiser Wagon models equipped with 5.0 and 5.7 liter engines. GM cars built to conform with the stricter California standards are not included in the recall.
