Recall Alert: 2013-2014 Chevrolet Spark, 2013 Buick Encore

13Encore_007

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 61 model-year 2013-2014 Chevrolet Spark cars and 2013 Buick Encore crossovers manufactured in Changwon, Korea, from Dec. 30, 2012 through May 8, 2013

The Problem: GM is reporting that the front passenger airbag end cap could separate from the airbag inflator, which could prevent the airbag from deploying in a crash. The automaker is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free.

What Owners Should Do: General Motors has not yet provided an owner notification schedule but did say courtesy transportation would be provided as needed. Owners can call Buick at 800-521-7300 or Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 for more information.

not necessarily a recall but my Sparks A/C has been acting up & then I got a letter stating that if it is to bring it in & they'll check it & see if the compressor needs replacing. Everytime I come to a red light it blows warm air out.

Same here, I took it into a dealership and they had to order the compressor and a thermostat. Apparently this is a known issue with the 2013 spark

I have had to take my Chevy Spark to the dealership three times because the air conditioner keeps going out. The first time was because there was a recall on coil and the second time the compressor was replaced and just sent it in for a 3rd time this morning.
