Chevrolet Impala recalls

 

For Models: Chevrolet Impala, Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Pontiac Grand Prix

Brakes, June 28, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

General Motors is recalling 2004 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo, and Pontiac Grand Prix models because they were produced with lower than specified torque on both front brake caliper to steering knuckle attachment bolts. If one or both bolts fracture, reduced braking and steering control could cause a crash. Dealers will tighten both bolts to the specified torque.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On 130 vehicles, the driver's air bag may not deploy properly if needed in a crash. Also, the inflator could rupture. This could increase the risk of injury to the driver and other passengers if pieces of the inflator strike them. Dealers will inspect and install a new driver's air bag if needed. The recall began March 11, 2003. The GM recall number is 03008.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

What's Happening?
A fuel return line may sever in a frontal collision, which could cause a fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire.

Possible Symptoms
No noticeable symptoms may be present, but a fire hazard is potentially dangerous, so have the vehicle inspected immediately.

What Do I Do?
Contact your dealer to see if your vehicle is affected by the recall. They will install a brake master cylinder bracket that will maintain positioning of the fuel line in a frontal crash.

For Models: Buick Century, Buick Regal, Chevrolet Impala
