Recall Alert: 2013 Chevrolet Sonic


GM is recalling 4,716 model-year 2013 versions of the Chevrolet Sonic compact car due to problems with the turn-signal lamp, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from May 29 through Aug. 29, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb). If the turn-signal lamp fails to function, the body control module will not warn the driver of the malfunction. This could lead to a crash.

GM will notify owners starting Oct. 3, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Chevrolet at 866-694-6546 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
