Problem Description

There is a possibility of the vehicle starting unintentionally when the ignition key is in the ‘off’ position in the ignition lock, in which case the starter motor may be activated if the vehicle is in gear, so that the vehicle starts to move. This could lead to persons, in particular outside the vehicle, being injured.

The recall affects vehicles manufactured between 2007 and 2010.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, the motor industry standards body Motor Codes offers a Vehicle Safety Recall search. By using this, any recalls that are active for your car can be identified. To use this facility, you’ll need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your car – this is a long code number that appears on the chassis plate of your car or – on most UK-registered cars – in the bottom-left corner of your windscreen.

If it’s confirmed there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a Chevrolet dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer. Usually that’ll be your nearest franchised dealership, or ‘main dealer’ as they’re sometimes known.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using the vehicle registration number.
