General Motors has issued a recall for over 4,000 2012 Chevy Sonics that have rolled out of GM’s Orion Township, MI assembly plant. The problem? Some may be missing something fairly important to their assembly: brake pads. According to The General, some 20 to 30 Sonics out there could be missing either an inner or outer front brake pad.
So if you’re the owner of a new Sonic, expect a letter in the mail beginning January 14, 2012. Owners will be instructed to take their Sonic to the nearest Chevy dealer for inspection for missing components, and to install new pads, if necessary.
