2014-2015 spark recall!

10 posts in this topic

1,919 2014-2015 Chevrolet Sparks imported from Korea that were assembled with a lower control arm bolt not fastened to specification. The condition could result in noise from the front suspension and separation of the lower control arm from the steering knuckle while driving resulting in loss of steering control. Dealers will inspect the left and right hand lower control arm attaching bolts to assure they are tightened to specification. GM knows of no crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this condition.

Mine is 2013 so I guess I'm fine.

Since it's 14 and 15's and only 1,919 of them it must be the last of the 14's and first of the 15's that are being recalled. Since mine was built early in the 14 model year I bet it is not included.

Open the drivers door, there is a sticker on the lower part of the door pillar, it will have the build date.

Here is the press release.

"1,919 model year 2014 Chevrolet Spark models for left and right lower control arm attaching bolts that may not be tightened to specification. GM has informed owners to have their vehicles transported to Chevrolet dealerships, where they will be inspect the attaching bolts to be sure they are tightened to specification. GM knows of no crashes or injuries related to this issue."

According to this it seems those that are affected by the recall have already been informed.

Update: I just called the 800 number and was told if you have not been contacted yet your car is not affected by this particular recall.

The 2015 Spark is not even out yet, and is already being recalled?

Might be world wide, sounds like they had a defective tool.
