The owners of 189,000 General Motors SUVs soon won't have to park them outside the garage for fear that they will catch fire.

The company says it will start notifying customers on Thursday to take the SUVs to dealers, who will replace faulty power window switches.

Water can get inside the driver's door-switches, causing rust and possibly a short circuit. That can cause overheating and fires. It can also make the windows stop working or raise and lower themselves.

The recall announced in June is the third one for the same problem. It covers the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Rainier, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 97-X, mainly in North America. Most are from the 2006 and 2007 model years. At least 28 fires were reported, but no injuries.
