Several models of Chevrolet automobiles are under active recall as of May 2015, including the Cheverolet Aveo, Camaro, Cobalt, Malibu and Sonic. Reasons for these recalls vary from model to model, ranging from nonfunctional windshield wipers to loss of power steering or engine power while driving.
The largest recall effort currently affecting Chevrolet vehicles affects 7.6 million General Motors vehicles that have been recalled due to unintended ignition key rotation issues. The ignition key in affected vehicles may rotate to the off position while the vehicle is in motion, causing the car or truck to lose engine power and power steering. GM has linked seven crashes and three fatal injuries to these issues. Affected Chevrolet vehicles include the 1997-2005 Malibu, 2000-2005 Impala and 2000-2005 Monte Carlo.
Other current Chevrolet recalls include a recall of the engine block heater power cord in some 2011-2014 Cruze, Sonic and Trax models due to the possibility of the insulation of the cord becoming damaged in very cold weather. Some 2014 Camaro and Impala models are under recall due to an improperly tightened fastener, and 2005-2007 Trailblazer SUVs are being recalled for a faulty power window and door lock control module that may disable the vehicle's locks.
