The North American based automotive giant General Motors has announced a recall for some of its vehicles because of a possible fuel leak.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 40, 859 units of the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, 2007-2009 Pontiac G5, 2007 Pontiac Torrent and 2007 Saturn Ion will be affected by this recall and owners of these models will have to take them back to the dealers because of the fuel pump module which may crack and cause fuel leakage.
“Some of these vehicles have a condition in which the plastic supply or return port on the fuel pump module may crack, which could cause a fuel leak. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire”, as the NHTSA is saying in its recalls summary of the problem.
The General Motors dealers will replace the fuel pump in the affected vehicles which were only sold in certain states in the U.S. The company or the NHTSA didn’t say anything for the moment about reports received from customers of crashes or injuries related to this problem. A date for the recall hasn’t been set yet but owners of the above mentioned models are advised to contact General Motors at 1-800-521-7300.
