More major automakers have issued recalls as of late, so we would like to take a moment to pass along this critical information for fleet managers:
General Motors Co. is recalling 1.3 million Chevrolet and Pontiac cars sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico to fix power steering motors. The recall covers 2005 to 2010 Chevrolet Cobalts, 2007 to 2010 Pontiac G5s, 2005 and 2006 Pontiac Pursuits sold in Canada and 2005 and 2006 Pontiac G4s sold in Mexico.
Nissan North America is recalling nearly 540,000 vehicles — the majority of which are in the U.S. — to inspect and, if necessary, repair brake pedal pins and fuel-gauge components on certain trucks and minivans. The vehicles involved in the recall to address the brake pedal pins are MY 2008-2010 Nissan Titans, Armadas, Quests and Infiniti QX56s.
Autocar is recalling nearly 2,000 MY 2008-2009 ACX heavy-duty Class 8 trucks because of a problem with the steering gear mounting.
If you have any of these vehicles in your fleet, take action to fix these problems before they cost you even more.
