Recall Alert: 2012 Chevrolet Sonic
GM is recalling 4,296 2012 Chevrolet Sonics because they may be missing a brake pad, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, which were built between June 2 and Nov. 21, 2011, the front-brake inner or outer pad may be missing. (You can find the vehicle's build date on a label affixed to the driver-side doorjamb.) A missing pad could reduce brake performance and increase the risk of a crash.
The recall is expected to begin around Jan. 14. Dealers will inspect the front brakes for a missing pad. If a brake pad is missing, the dealer will install new inner and outer pads, a new brake caliper and a new rotor for free. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
