Recall Number: 90226 Recall Date: 10-29-2009 Affected Vehicles: 69,139
Component:
Fuel system, gasoline:delivery:fuel pump
Summary:
General motors is recalling certain model year 2006 chevrolet cobalt and saturn ion vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of arizona and nevada; and model year 2007 chevrolet cobalt, pontiac g5 and saturn ion vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of arizona, california, florida, nevada and texas. the plastic supply or return port on the modular reservoir assembly may crack. if either of these ports develops a crack, fuel will leak from the area. if the crack becomes large enough, fuel may be observed dripping onto the ground and vehicle performance may be affected.
Consequence:
Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire.
How to Fix:
Dealers will replace the fuel pump module free of charge. a special coverage will be implemented in the same time frame for model year 2006 vehicles registered in alabama, arkansas, california, florida, georgia, hawaii, louisiana, mississippi, north carolina, new mexico, oklahoma, south carolina, tennessee and texas and model year 2007 vehicles registered in: alabama, arkansas, georgia, hawaii, louisiana, mississippi, north carolina, new mexico, oklahoma, south carolina and tennessee. the safety recall is expected to begin on or before february 4, 2010. owners may contact chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, saturn at 1-800-972-8876 and pontiac at 1-800-620-7668 or at the owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.
Recall Date: 04-07-2009 Affected Vehicles: 16,270
Component:
Exterior lighting
Summary:
"sabersport is recalling 16,270 combination corner and bumper lamp assemblies of various part numbers sold for use as aftermarket equipment for various passenger vehicles. these headlamps fail to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 108, ""lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."" these lamps do not contain the required amber side reflectors."
Consequence:
Decreased lighting visibility may result in a vehicle crash.
How to Fix:
Sabersport will notify owners and offer a full refund for the noncompliant combination lamps. the safety recall began on may 11, 2009. owners may contact sabersport at 1-909-598-7589.

Summary Detail:
Odi has received 846 complaints and gm identified 3,489 reports alleging sudden loss of power steering assist in model year (my) 2004 through 2007 saturn ion vehicles manufactured and sold by general motors corporation (gm).sixteen of these complaints alleged that the eps warning lamp had illuminated before or during the loss of steering assist and the increased steering effort contributed to a crash. two of the gm crash claims indicated that the driver was injured in the crash. in a previous preliminary evaluation pe10-005, odi investigated the sudden loss of power steering assist in my 2005 through 2010 chevrolet cobalt vehicles.in may 2011, in response to an odi information request letter for rq10-004, gm provided odi with complaint, warranty and eps system information related to eps loss of assist for the saturn ion and peer vehicles pontiac g6 and chevrolet malibu. in that response, gm indicated that the eps system used in the subject vehicles was the same as that used in the my2005 to 2010 chevrolet cobalt and pontiac g5. in march 2010, gm recalled approximately 1.05 million chevrolet cobalt and pontiac g5 vehicles (nhtsa recall no. 10v-073) to correct a defect with the eps assist motor. the defect identified was described as a buildup of brush debris mixed with oily material on the eps electric motor armature which causes the motor to stop functioning; the same problem identified in the current subject vehicles.odi has duplicated this failure in both a chevrolet cobalt and saturn ion previously tested at the vehicle research and test center (vrtc). in the defect notification letter for the previously recalled cobalt and g5 vehicles, gm stated that the vehicles may experience a sudden loss of assist that could occur at any time while driving and that if power steering was lost the vehicle would revert to manual steering mode and would require increased steering effort from the driver.odi believes that, depending on driving circumstances this increase in steering effort could result in some loss of control and a crash.an engineering analysis has been opened to further assess the frequency, scope and safety consequences of a sudden loss of steering assist in the subject vehicles.
