General Motors is recalling certain 2006–2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn Ion, and Pontiac G5 vehicles registered in Arizona, Nevada, California, Florida, and Texas because of a crack that could possibly develop on the plastic supply or return port of the fuel modular reservoir assembly. This crack could cause a fuel leak that could be observed dripping onto the ground in some cases, causing a possible vehicle performance issue and a fire hazard. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module free of charge.
In extremely low temperatures, condensation in the brake booster vacuum port may freeze, causing an increase in stopping distance, which can lead to a crash. Dealers will modify the brake vacuum line free of charge. The recall began on October 23, 2009. The GM recall number is 09199.
The brake lights may stay illuminated. The tire pressure warning light may come on only after a tire has lost an excessive amount of air. Ineffective brake lights could cause an accident. Erroneous tire pressure warnings could allow tire pressure to get dangerously low. Dealers will reprogram the brake position sensor and the remote door lock receiver. The GM recall numbers are 09101 and 09046. This recall began on June 5, 2009.
The shifter cable adjustment may become dislodged. This may cause the vehicle to show that it is in "Park," when it could actually be in another gear. If this happens, the vehicle may move and not be secure. Dealers will inspect the shift cable adjustment clip to make sure it is fully engaged, and will replace any shift cables that cannot be secured. The General Motors recall number is 09041. The recall began on March 24, 2009.
A poor electrical connection could occur at the brake light switch due to corrosion. Systems affected would be brake lights, cruise control, and the shifter interlock. The loss of brake light operation could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will apply dielectric lubricant to the connector to prevent corrosion. The recall is expected to begin on February 17, 2009. The General Motors recall number is 80317.
The bolts securing the driver and passenger front door glass may loosen and come off, causing the glass to separate from the window regulator. An abnormal noise may be noted when operating the windows. The window may bind and shatter during operation, causing the driver distraction and/or injury. Dealers will replace the driver and passenger front door glass bolts with newly designed bolts to correct this concern. The Toyota recall number is 80A. The General Motors recall number is 07273.
Due to variations in the manufacturing process, or exposure to high heat may lead to a fracture in the tank inlet check valve. Fuel vapors may pass through the fracture and accumulate on the side of the fuel tank. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank. The recall began December 4, 2007. The GM recall number is 06230.
The passenger side air bag may not deactivate as appropriate when a child is sitting in the seat. This is due to a faulty seat sensor. Dealers will replace the passenger sensing system. The GM recall number is 06143. This recall began on April 17, 2007.
