Chevrolet Aveo Recall Information

NEWS: GM is recalling certain 2009-2010 Chevrolet Aveo and 2009 Pontiac G3 vehicles; ANTI-LOCK BRAKES
Report Receipt Date: JUL 29, 2014 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V460000 
Component(s): ANTI-LOCK BRAKES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,968

SEPT 2014 -- General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Chevrolet Aveo and 2009 Pontiac G3 vehicles. The vehicles may contain brake fluid which does not protect against corrosion of the valves inside the anti-lock brake system (ABS) module, affecting the closing motion of the valves. If the ABS valve corrodes it may result in longer brake pedal travel or reduced performance, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ABS module, free of charge, in any vehicle that did not have its module replaced under a previous customer satisfaction campaign. The recall is expected to begin in mid-September 2014. GM's number for this recall is 14505. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

MAY 2014 -- General Motors is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 Chevrolet Aveo vehicles equipped with daytime running lights (DRL). In the affected vehicles, there may be heat generated within the DRL module located in the center console in the instrument panel, which could melt the DRL module. If the DRL module melts due to the heat generation, it could cause a vehicle fire. The remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. General Motors recall number for this campaign is 14236. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.


NEWS:    Feds Step Up Probe of Chevy Aveo Stuck Throttle

Ice formation in engine can cause problems

ComnsumerAffairs.org -- February 19, 2008 -- Federal safety regulators are stepping up an investigation of the vehicle speed control system in 2004 and 2005 Chevrolet Aveos.

The Office of Defect Investigations (ODI) which is part of the National Highway traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has upgraded its evaluation of complaints which began October 19, 2007 about stuck throttles in the Aveo because of “ice formation within the engine air intact tract.”

The change, according to ODI, follows a safety recall by General Motors “involving substantially similar vehicles manufactured for sale in Canada.”

GM, according to the federal safety group twice revised the Canadian recall “to include more substantial changes to the throttle body, intake manifold, positive crankcase ventilation and engine cooling systems to further reduce air intake tract.”

After receiving 28 complaints of a stuck throttle in vehicles in the U.S. along with 46 warranty claims affecting 63 vehicles,” investigators suspect the defect occurs in the winter when the temperature is below freezing.

Information provided to ODI by GM does not include events involving stuck throttles during the “most recent winter months” so the investigation will be intensified to “further study the frequency of the alleged defect,” according to ODI.

An engineering analysis is often the last step before a NHTSA-mandated recall.
