General Motors, American Multinational Automotive Corporation has recently recalled its 41,000 car models due to possible fuel leak. They have recalled cars only in warm-weather states like California, Florida, Nevada, Arizona and Texas. In this recall, they have included 2007-2009 Pontiac G5, 2007-09 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, 2007 Pontiac Torrent, and 2007 Saturn Ion. They have recalled cars for correcting fuel leak that is caused by plastic parts connected to the fuel pump. As per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), company wants to prevent fuel leaking because it may cause fire. Driving with affected vehicles is completely unsafe, so rendering the recall required.
GM does not take any charges for repairing the cars. It had not taken recall decision immediately when they got complaints from the car owners. After receiving complaints, General Motors began investigation for finding defective part after that they went into action. It will become really hard for GM to notify used car owners compared to new car owners. So, if you are owner of car which are included in the recall service and want to get information on the recall, then call General Motors at 1-800-521-7300. If you are an owner of one of the used affected vehicles or don’t live in one of states on the automaker’s list, then you should call GM as a precaution. It will send recall notices soon, requesting drivers of affected vehicles to visit a dealership, where affected fuel pumps will be checked and replaced by GM at free of cost, if necessary.
