RepairPal Expert Overview:

On some vehicles, the fuel tank may be missing the adhesive that bonds the barrier layer to the outer shell. This may allow fuel and/or fuel vapors to leak out between the layers, increasing the risk of fire. Dealers will inspect the serial numbers on the fuel tank and replace it if needed. The recall began November 13, 2006. The GM recall number is 06160.

In temperatures between -22 and -40 degrees F, and if one of the accelerator pedal return springs breaks, the engine may not return to idle within three seconds as required.

On some vehicles, the front frame rear body mount bracket may crack.

Dealers will inspect the front frame assembly and replace it if necessary. The recall began August 16, 2004. The GM recall number is 04056.

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.
