Chevrolet Sonic Recall Information


NEWS: GM is recalling certain 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Sonic vehicles
Report Receipt Date: SEP 26, 2013
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V464000
Component(s): FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,558

SEPTEMBER 2013 - General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Sonic vehicles manufactured August 2, 2013, through August 12, 2013. Due to insufficient welds, the front fuel tank strap bracket may separate from the vehicle. If the front fuel tank strap bracket separates, the increased load may lead to the failure of the other tank support. As a result, the fuel tank may come loose from the vehicle causing a fuel leak. A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, may result in a fire. GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the front fuel tank strap bracket, and repair it as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on November 7, 2013. GM's recall campaign number is 13296. 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: General Motors is recalling 1,658 Chevrolet Sonic cars; Fuel Tank
Yahoo News @ October 9, 2013

OCTOBER 2013 - General Motors Co is recalling 1,658 Chevrolet Sonic cars, as potentially faulty strap welds could cause the fuel tank to separate from the car.

The recall of 2013 and 2014 model-year cars affects 1,558 cars in the United States and 100 in Canada, most of which are still on dealer lots, GM said. The No. 1 U.S. automaker said it knows of no accidents, fires or injuries related to the issue.

If the strap bracket separated, the fuel tank would rest on the exhaust pipe or plastic fuel tank shield, possibly leading to a rattling or scraping noise, GM said. If the shield and fuel filler neck did not support the tank, it could separate from the car, GM said.

If the fuel tank were punctured and there were a source of ignition, a fire could occur, said GM, which discovered the issue at its Orion, Michigan, assembly plant.

The inspection of the bracket straps and any necessary repairs will be free, GM said.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is not posting on its website recalls submitted by automakers due to the government shutdown
