Chevrolet Sonic recall affects more than 21,560 vehicles from 2012 model-year. The vehicles are all equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission and 1,8-liter four-cylinder engine.
The problem with the affected vehicles is that the transmission turbine shaft is problematic and may fracture. It this happens in high gears, the vehicle may slow down to the lowest gears. If this happens in the lower gears, the vehicle will not be able to upshift into higher ones. In both of the cases, a malfunction indicator lamp will illuminate. If driven in this condition for long distances, the gears may become impossible to handle.
The automaker is not aware of any accidents or injuries connected with the issue. GM will notify all the affected customers about the recall and the dealers will fix the problem at no charge to the owners. Contact General Motors at 800-222-1020 for more information about Chevrolet Sonic recall.
