General Motors Recalls Chevrolet Sonic Due to Windshield Visibility Issue
General Motors (GM) has announced a recall of approximately 45,000 2012 Chevrolet Sonic vehicles. These vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 104, 'Windshield Wiping and Washing Systems.'
The windshield wiper washer hose on these vehicles may separate from the washer fluid reservoir. If this occurs, washer fluid will not be available to the windshield. A lack of washer fluid could impede the driver's view, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Chevrolet Sonic vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured from May 5, 2011, through February 24, 2012.
GM will notify the owners of all recalled vehicles, and dealers will secure the windshield washer hose to prevent separation, free of charge. For more information, contact the Chevrolet owner center at 866-694-6546.
