HHR

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION

Recall number: 14V171000
Recall date: 04/10/2014

Problem Summary:

GENERAL MOTORS LLC (GM) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2010 CHEVROLET COBALT, 2006-2011 CHEVROLET HHR, 2007-2010 PONTIAC G5, 2006-2010 PONTIAC SOLSTICE, 2003-2007 SATURN ION, AND 2007-2010 SATURN SKY VEHICLES. IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, THE KEY CAN BE REMOVED FROM THE IGNITION WHEN THE IGNITION IS NOT IN THE "OFF" POSITION.

Consequence:

IF THE KEY CAN BE REMOVED FROM THE IGNITION WHEN THE IGNITION IS NOT IN THE "OFF" POSITION, THE VEHICLE COULD ROLL AWAY: (A) FOR AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, IF THE TRANSMISSION IS NOT IN THE "PARK" POSITION; OR (B) FOR A MANUAL TRANSMISSION, IF THE PARKING BRAKE IS NOT ENGAGED AND THE TRANSMISSION IS NOT IN THE "REVERSE" POSITION. THIS POTENTIAL FOR ROLLAWAY INCREASES THE RISK FOR A CRASH AND OCCUPANT OR PEDESTRIAN INJURIES.

Corrective Action:

GENERAL MOTORS WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND FOR VEHICLES THAT WERE BUILT WITH THE DEFECTIVE IGNITION CYLINDER AND HAVE NOT PREVIOUSLY HAD THE IGNITION CYLINDER REPLACED WITH THE REDESIGNED PART, DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE IGNITION CYLINDER AND CUT AND, IF NECESSARY, RE-LEARN TWO IGNITION/DOOR KEYS FOR EACH VEHICLE. FOR VEHICLES THAT WERE BUILT WITH THE REDESIGNED IGNITION CYLINDER OR HAD THE IGNITION CYLINDER REPLACED WITH THE REDESIGNED PART, DEALERS WILL CUT AND, IF NECESSARY, RE-LEARN TWO IGNITION/DOOR KEYS FOR EACH VEHICLE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED A NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. CHEVROLET OWNERS MAY CONTACT GENERAL MOTORS AT 1-800-222-1020, PONTIAC OWNERS AT 1-800-762-2737, AND SATURN OWNERS AT 1-800-553-6000. GENERAL MOTORS' NUMBER FOR THIS RECALL IS 14113 FOR THE IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER AND KEY REPLACEMENT, AND 14133 FOR ONLY KEY REPLACEMENTS. NOTE: UNTIL A VEHICLE HAS BEEN REMEDIED, OWNERS AND OPERATORS ARE ADVISED THAT WHEN EXITING, TO BE SURE THAT THE VEHICLE IS IN "PARK," OR IN THE CASE OF A MANUAL TRANSMISSION, THAT THE VEHICLE IS IN THE "REVERSE" POSITION AND THE PARKING BRAKE IS ENGAGED.

This recall affects vehicles manufactured between 04/11/2005 and 06/22/2006.


ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH

Recall number: 14V047000
Recall date: 02/10/2014

Problem Summary:

GENERAL MOTORS LLC (GM) ANNOUNCED ON FEBRUARY 10, 2014 THAT THEY ARE RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2007 CHEVROLET COBALT, AND 2007 PONTIAC G5 VEHICLES.

IN THESE MODELS, THE WEIGHT ON THE KEY RING AND/OR ROAD CONDITIONS OR SOME OTHER JARRING EVENT MAY CAUSE THE IGNITION SWITCH TO MOVE OUT OF THE RUN POSITION, TURNING OFF THE ENGINE.

Consequence:

IF THE KEY IS NOT IN THE RUN POSITION, THE AIR BAGS MAY NOT DEPLOY IF THE VEHICLE IS INVOLVED IN A CRASH, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY.

Corrective Action:

OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-222-1020, PONTIAC AT 1-800-762-2737 OR SATURN AT 1-800-553-6000. GM'S NUMBER FOR THE INITIAL RECALL IS 13454 AND 14063 FOR THE EXPANSION. NOTE: UNTIL THE RECALL REPAIRS HAVE BEEN PERFORMED, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT CUSTOMERS REMOVE ALL ITEMS FROM THEIR KEY RINGS, LEAVING ONLY THE VEHICLE KEY. THE KEY FOB (IF APPLICABLE), SHOULD ALSO BE REMOVED FROM THE KEY RING.

This recall affects vehicles manufactured between 04/11/2005 and 06/22/2006.

AIR BAGS:FRONTAL

Recall number: 06V417000
Recall date: 10/31/2006

Problem Summary:

CERTAIN VEHICLES ORIGINALLY BUILT WITH CLOTH SEATS THAT WERE EQUIPPED WITH AN AUTOMATIC AIR BAG PASSENGER SENSING SYSTEM AND LATER REUPHOLSTERED WITH AFTERMARKET LEATHER SEAT COVER KITS ARE INVOLVED. TESTING HAS INDICATED THAT THE AFTERMARKET LEATHER SEAT COVERS CAN CAUSE THE PASSENGER SENSING SYSTEM TO MALFUNCTION.

Consequence:

IF THE PASSENGER SENSING SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS, THE FRONT AIR BAG ON THE PASSENGER SIDE MAY BE DISABLED WHEN IT SHOULD BE ENABLED, OR ENABLED WHEN IT SHOULD BE DISABLED. IN EITHER CASE, IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH THAT REQUIRES AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT, A FRONT PASSENGER'S LEVEL OF INJURY MAY BE INCREASED.

Corrective Action:

BECAUSE A REPLACEMENT LEATHER SEAT COVER THAT IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE PASSENGER SENSING SYSTEM IS NOT AVAILABLE, GENERAL MOTORS (GM) WILL REPURCHASE THESE VEHICLES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS STATED IN GM¿S LETTER TO OWNERS. THE RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 6, 2006. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT GM AT 1-877-477-1022 TO BEGIN THE PROCESS OF REPURCHASING THEIR VEHICLE.
