Recall Alert: 52,937 GM Compact Cars

2007_Chevy_Cobalt
GM has issued a recall for 52,937 vehicles, including the 2006-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2007 Pontiac G5 and 2006-2007 Saturn Ion, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall is for vehicles sold or currently registered in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada and Texas and is due to a plastic supply or return port on the modular reservoir assembly that could crack. If either of these components cracks then fuel will leak, which could cause a fire if it ignites. The fuel leak may be visible depending on the size of the crack.

Dealers will replace the fuel pump module for free. Even if you do not own a vehicle sold or registered in the aforementioned states, check with your dealer all the same. Some vehicles from the same timeframe in other states may be eligible for special warranty coverage.

Owners may contact Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, Saturn at 800-972-8876 and Pontiac at 800-620-7668 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236.

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and I've seen things come out of my A$$ that have held together better than that piece of junk......

Haha I couldn't agree more... The lease on my 06 Cobalt SS ended in March and I bought a Civic SI... Couldn't be happier! Great little car and super fun to drive with no issues thusfar :)

I really don't know why the NHTSA allows these geographically-specific recalls. What if you travel to one of the affected states, or what if the car is resold in one of the affected states?

I had a Nissan once with a similar recall. I got the fix done without any hassle by telling them I travelled a lot, but I can't imagine it's always that easy.

This will be a headache for rental fleets, who tend to stock up on Cobalts. Just look at a garage in NY: Cobalt from Texas, Cobalt from Florida, Cobalt from Connecticut, Cobalt from New Jersey, Cobalt from Pennsylvania, etc.

GM can't catch a break can they.

Tim, the CSS is blazingly fast but I've read far too many owners not happy with how the car holds up over time. Good thing you leased it.

Not the best built cars in the workd

I am uspet about an issue with my 2007 cobalt. Last year I noticed and smelled fuel leaking from under my car. Took it to dealer, was told gas tank had crack at very top/opening. Had to pay $1,000.00.Just got a recall notice on plastic supply or return port, mod resevoir assembly may crack. I think this was my issue and I should not have had to pay for a new tank. GM should refund my money as I feel my problem was the result of the recall issue???

Some vehicles from the same timeframe in other states may be eligible for special warranty coverage. This statement that is posted above is an incorrect statement. While i am military and deployed right now my 2007 Saturn ion and been causing a lot of problems while my wife has been driving it and we have 2 kids none the less. She said it jerks really bad at times while she is driving it and it feels like she has been rearended when the car does this. She took the car in to the dealership we got the car from, oh which buy the way is no longer a Saturn dealership but is still a GM owned company. They stated that we need a new fuel pump and fuel injectors and want us to pay a little over a thousand dollars to fix it. I called Saturn when i found out about the recall on fuel pumps. So Saturn called the dealership and said they do not believe the fuel pump in my car is faulted due to a defect and will not cover the cost of repair. My wife and i feel that this recall is too much of a coincidence to believe that this is true.
