Chevrolet Sonic Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., January 24, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The driver's front airbag includes a safety device called a shorting bar - this prevents unexpected deployment of the airbag when it is removed from the vehicle. In this case, the shorting bar may intermittently contact the airbag terminals while it is installed in the vehicle. This could result in illumination of the airbag warning light or the airbag may not deploy when necessary. Failure of the airbag to deploy would increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering wheel airbag coil to correct this concern.

Electrical & Lights, September 17, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

If a turn signal lamp fails to operate, the Body Control Module (BCM) may not detect this condition and may not alert the driver. If the driver is unaware that the turn signal is not functioning and does not have the light repaired, other drivers may not be alerted that the vehicle is turning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the BCM and the vehicle's key fobs to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12209.
