GM is recalling 40,859 model-year 2007-09 versions of several Chevrolet, Pontiac and Saturn vehicles due to problems with the fuel pump, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were originally sold or are currently registered in Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas and include the following: 2007-09 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, 2007-09 Pontiac G5, 2007 Pontiac Torrent and 2007 Saturn Ion.

In these vehicles, a plastic part in the fuel pump could crack, causing a leak. This could lead to an increased risk of a crash.

GM has not yet provided an owner notification schedule, but dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call GM at 800-521-7300 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

They should add the same recalls for the Cobalt and G5 to the G6. It is basically the same car with the same problems. These problems exist on my G6 and many others on the G6 blogs.

Should be extended to 2006 Chevy Corvette Z06. Fuel odor at rear of car was due to sealant that degraded overtime in warm climates like mine in Florida. Vapors and fuel leaked out. Repair costs $4K on my Vette. That is why it has not been included. It costs too much because it is so labor intensive on a Corvette.
