Pontiac Grand Am Recalls
Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys to correct this concern.
Certain passenger vehicles were equipped with rear suspension knuckle bolts that are not up to specifications. These may fracture, causing the rear wheels to steer in or out, thus leading to an increased chance of an accident. The dealer will replace both of these bolts free of charge. The GM recall # is 05020
GM has recalled certain 2003 Chevrolet Malibu, Oldsmobile Alero, and Pontiac Grand Am vehicles because the accelerator may stick in hot temperatures, which can increase the risk of an accident. Dealers will inspect the accelerator pedal arm and replace the accelerator and brake pedal assembly.
