2013-2014 Chevrolet Sonic Recalled Over Fire Risk
"If the strap bracket separates, the fuel tank would rest on the exhaust pipe or plastic fuel tank shield, and owners may hear a rattling or scraping noise. If the fuel tank shield and fuel filler neck do not support the tank, it could separate from the car. If the tank is punctured and there is a source of ignition, a fire may occur,” said GM spokesman Alan Adler, according to The Detroit News.
The automaker says the issue was discovered at the Orion assembly plant in Oakland County and that no crashes or injuries related to this problem have been reported so far. 1,588 recalled Chevrolet Sonics are located in the United States, while 100 were delivered in Canada.
