Chevy Cobalt Recall Response
Recently, evidence has come to light demonstrating that problems with the ignition switch in some model year Chevy Cobalt vehicles, as well as Pontiac G5s, can cause a sudden loss of power and result in airbags failing to deploy in an accident. As a result, General Motors (GM) has recently announced a recall for 2005-07 model year Chevy Cobalts and 2007 Pontiac G5s.
