NHTSA May Add 1 Million More GM Vehicles to Electronical Issue Recall
Share this Article

Following an investigation of General Motors vehicles with a transmission flaw, federal safety administrators are considering recalling another 1 million vehicles due to faulty electronics.

The recall would include the 2004 to 2011 Chevrolet Malibu, 2007 to 2009 Saturn Aura sedan and the 2008 to 2010 Pontiac G6.

Late last year, over 400,000 of these vehicles were recalled for incorrectly displaying the current gear that the car was in, meaning a car put in Park, might not actually have been in park.

The new recall affects the electronic components in these cars, and finding that brake lights don’t always come on when the brake pedal is depressed. Another issue that has been reported involves malfunctioning cruise control systems.  The blame of these issues rest with faulty connectors, which would likely need to be replaced should a recall occur.

In the case of a recall, Saturn and Pontiac owners shouldn’t worry that there are no dealerships for their vehicles. Taking them to any other GM dealership will be fine.
