NHTSA May Ask GM To Expand Recall of Pontiac G6 Models

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced Friday it is investigating whether General Motors Co. should expand a 2008 recall of Pontiac G6 vehicles for faulty brake lights.
NHTSA has opened an investigation into whether GM’s 2008 recall of 8,000 vehicles should be expanded to as many as 550,000 2005-06 Pontiac G6 cars.
NHTSA has received 212 reports that claim brake lights do not operate properly on model year 2005-09 Pontiac G6 vehicles.
The complaints say the brake lights illuminate when the brake pedal has not been depressed, or the lights do not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed. In addition, the cruise control may not engage, or will disengage unintentionally.
NHTSA says if brake lights are not operating properly, they may not warn a driver in a following vehicle of the braking status, which could lead to a crash.
In September 2008, NHTSA opened a similar investigation into allegations of brake light malfunctions on 2005-09 Pontiac G6 vehicles.
GM responded by recalling 7,927 2005 and 85 2006 G6 vehicles that were manufactured in January 2005 only.
No crashes or injuries have been reported.
