A Flurry of Recalls

General Motors is recalling 111,889 Chevrolet Corvettes from model years 2005-2007. According to a statement from the manufacturer, “When the engine is warm, the under hood electrical center housing could expand causing the headlamp low beam relay control circuit wire to bend slightly.” This causes the headlight to fail to illuminate. Once the housing cools, the problem is usually resolved but after several occurrences the wire can fracture and separate causing the light to fail entirely. There have been no accidents associated with the problem but there have been several hundred complaints.

GM is also recalling 2,440,524 vehicles from the following makes and models:
2004-2007 Chevy Malibu Maxx, 2004-2012 Chevy Malibu, 2007-2010 Saturn Aura, and 2005-2010 Pontiac G6.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that the “brake lights may or may not randomly illuminate” in these vehicles. This means that they may light up when the brake pedal is not pushed or they may not when the pedal is pushed. The problem also causes difficulty in disengaging the cruise control and the loss of traction control, electronic stability control, and brake assist features. There have been several hundred complaints and 13 crashes connected with this defect but no injuries.

Hyundai is recalling 141,000 2011-2014 Tuscons because the airbag is not properly attached to the steering wheel which increases the risk of injury to the driver in the event of a crash. There have been no accidents or injuries thus far, but there have been 141 reports of improperly tightened bolts.

If you own any of the affected vehicles you may contact the manufacturers at the following numbers:
General Motors: 1-800-222-1020
Hyundai: 1-200-633-5151

All repairs will be made at the dealership at no cost to owners.
