2013 Chevrolet Sonic RecallsEngine 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.
1558 vehicles are being recalled because one of the straps securing the fuel tank may not have been manufactured correctly. Insufficient welds could cause the strap to separate from the vehicle. A broken strap would put additional pressure on the second strap, increasing its risk of failure. Should both straps fail, the fuel tank would come loose, increasing the risk of a fuel leak. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the affected fuel strap and bracket and repair it as necessary.
If a turn signal lamp fails to operate, the Body Control Module (BCM) may not detect this condition and may not alert the driver. If the driver is unaware that the turn signal is not functioning and does not have the light repaired, other drivers may not be alerted that the vehicle is turning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the BCM and the vehicle's key fobs to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12209.
