Recall on Chevy Spark

ChevyLogoVehicles Affected: More than 1,900 model-year 2014 Chevrolet Spark hatchbacks manufactured between May 7, 2014, and May 26, 2014. You can check your vehicle’s manufacture date by locating a sticker on the driver’s-side doorjamb.

The Problem: The left and right lower control arm attaching bolts in the front suspension may not be tightened to specification. This could cause the lower control arm to separate from the steering knuckle while driving, causing a loss of steering and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: GM will begin notifying owners ASAP, and dealers will inspect the left and right lower control arm attaching bolts to make sure they are tightened to the proper specification for free.

What Owners Should Do: GM is advising owners not to drive their vehicles until the recall remedy is completed; they should call a Chevrolet dealer immediately to arrange for their vehicle to be transported for servicing for free. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

    Dear car pro guys,

    Can you tell me more about the Chevy Spark, gas model? When did it come out, what years should I avoid buying a used one? I drove one in 2013 & it was great. Rented it for 2 wks. Unfortunately it was dayglo green!! I assume they’re priced very low.

    Also, I learned a fair amount about leases from your site and wonder if “nearly new” cars can be leased? An example might be the loaner cars you spoke of this week.

    Thanks for a great show and car buying resources!!

      Marsha, good to hear from you. Spark was originally built by Daewoo in the late 1990s. GM owned part of Daewoo and when Daewoo went out of business, GM started selling the cars in the US as the Spark, and that was in 2010. They’ve been really good cars and get great gas mileage.

      Yes, you can lease a loaner, just know you’ll lose the mileage that is already on the car. Thanks for listening to the show!
