Component not known
These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS No. 301, "Fuel System Integrity", because the fuel fill fitting is not properly secured to the fuel tank and could leak an excessive amount of fuel. Fuel leaks may occur, particularly after refueling or when the tank is more than half full. If an ignition source were present, a fire could occur.
Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and replace it if necessary. Owner notification began Nov. 18, 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.

This defect can affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. General Motors LLC (GM) notified the agency on July 3, 2014, that they are recalling 6,729,742 model year 2000-2005 Chevrolet Impala and Monte Carlo, 1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu, 1999-2004 Oldsmobile Alero, 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue, 1999-2005 Pontiac Grand Am and 2004-2008 Pontiac Grand Prix 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.
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.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will provide two replacement key rings and key cover on all ignition keys, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. GM's number for this recall is 14350.
