General Motors LLC (GM) has issued a recall for certain 2014-2017 Buick Encore vehicles, per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), due to a potential safety concern. The recall specifically covers Encore vehicles manufactured between November 8, 2013 and May 26, 2017.

The problem is associated with the windshield wiper motor gear teeth.
