GM is recalling 44,668 model-year 2012 versions of the Chevrolet Sonic compact car because of a faulty windshield-wiper washer hose, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from May 5, 2011, through Feb. 24, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), and they have a windshield-wiper washer hose that could separate from the fluid reservoir. This could lead to a lack of fluid, possibly impairing the driver's view.

GM will notify owners starting Sept. 7, and dealers will replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Chevrolet at 866-694-6546 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
