2009 Pontiac Vibe Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., February 16, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The accelerator pedal may become increasingly difficult to depress. Moisture may get into the sliding surface of the pedal lever, and the lever may deteriorate and bind. A sticking or difficult to operate accelerator causes an increased risk of a collision. Dealers will install a reinforcement bar in the accelerator pedal that will allow the pedal to operate smoothly. This recall began in early February 2010.

Body, Interior & Misc., July 20, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A poorly fitting driver's side floor mat may cause the gas pedal to stick at wide open throttle, causing uncontrolled acceleration. A stuck gas pedal can result in very high vehicle speeds, which may lead to a crash. General Motors will notify owners when there is a remedy for this concern. Owners are advised to remove the floor mat and place it in the trunk until the recall remedy is ready. GM recommends that no other floor mat be installed in the interim. The GM recall number is 10038.

Electrical & Lights, October 10, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota and General Motors are recalling certain models because the power window master switch assembly in some of these vehicles was built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assembly. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. This could result in the switch melting or possibly catching fire. Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the master window switch as necessary.

2009 Pontiac Vibe Reviews

I replace a 2005 base Vibe with a 2009 GT. The suspension is far superior. The independent rear suspension corners much better.
They equipped mine with On Star and XM radio from the factory. I blew a tire on a mountain road. There was no cell service up there. I reached On Star and the service truck came up and had me going in about forty-five minutes.
Love our Pontiacs. We'll miss you.
