GM Recalls More Than 40k Cars – Car Pro News

General Motors is recalling more than 40,000 cars because a plastic part might crack and cause a fuel leak.
The company is recalling Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 sedans from the 2007 through 2009 model years and Chevrolet Equinoxes, Pontiac Torrents and Saturn Ions from the 2007 model year.
The recall affects vehicles sold or currently registered in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada or Texas. Owners in Arkansas and Oklahoma are also included in the recall of the 2009 Cobalt and G5.
The vehicles have plastic parts in the fuel pump which could crack. A fuel leak can lead to a fire. GM says the problem is far more common in warm-weather states.
GM also says there have been no reports of fires or injuries.

    I own a 2007 HHR LT, my car and the recalled cars in the article use the same fuel pump. So way is the HHR not include in this recall?

      Richard, good to hear from you. Many times, recalls are issued for cars built during a certain time frame. They track parts installations so they can isolate it when problems like this occur. Although it may be the same pump, it may not have come out of the same batch. If you experience problems with yours, contact GM and let them know, it is not uncommon for recalls to be expanded.
