2012 Chevrolet Sonic Recalls

Engine Block Heater

In cold temperatures, the insulation on the engine block heater cord can become damaged, allowing the wires to be exposed. Exposed wires increase the risk of electrical shock and personal injury if the cord is handled while it is plugged in. Dealers will replace the block heater cord with one rated for lower temperatures free of charge to correct this concern. 

Transmission Shaft May Fracture

The turbine shaft inside the transmission may fracture, which would result in internal transmission failure, lack of shifting and loss of vehicle speed. Dealers will replace the transmission turbine shaft free of charge to resolve the concern.

Driver's Front Air Bag Defective

The driver's front air bag has a shorting bar which may intermittently contact the air bag terminals. This would cause the air bag to not function as designed in an accident. Dealers will replace the steering wheel air bag coil free of charge to resolve the problem.
