GM has announced two separate recalls for the Chevrolet Camaro coupe, as well as the Sonic subcompact vehicle (they did not specify if both the sedan and hatchback will be recalled). Both vehicles being recalled were produced for the 2013-2014 model years, with no official numbers being released.
The Camaro recall involves the airbag warning sticker, which may peel off of the driver's side sun visor. The warning sticker is required, in order to be in compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208 "Occupant Crash Protection." The warning label informs both the driver and passenger of any risks with the airbags, in the event of a collision.
With the Chevrolet Sonic, the recall is for vehicles that were produced from August 2, 2013, through August 12, 2013. It has been determined that due to the welds being insufficient, the front fuel tank strap bracket may work itself loose from the vehicle. This could lead to a failure in the tank support, due to the increase load. If the fuel tank were to be separated from the vehicle, it could cause a fuel leak, which could increase the risk of a fire at or near the vehicle.
The latest Chevy recalls will have their respective owners taking their vehicles to the dealerships, where the technicians will inspect and replace/repair the necessary parts (replace the sunvisor, and repair the fuel tank strap bracket). For more information, or to schedule a service appointment, owners can contact their local Chevrolet dealership. Both recalls are expected to begin right away, with owners being notified through the mail.
