Feds May Force GM to Add Another Million Vehicles to Earlier Recall

NHTSA studying brake light, other electrical problems.

The previous-generation Chevy Malibu could be caught up if NHTSA orders a new recall.

Federal safety regulators are considering the need to expand an earlier General Motors recall due to potentially faulty brake lights and other problems, a move that could involve more than 1 million GM midsize passenger cars.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is primarily targeting models sharing similar electric systems with the Pontiac G6. That model was a recall target four years ago when it was found that some of the models produced in 2005 and 2006 had brake lights that did not operate properly.

NHTSA is now looking at even more of the G6 models, potentially covering model-years 2005 through 2008, a move that could involve as many as 550,000 vehicles. The safety agency says it has so far received 212 reports indicating brake lights don’t always come on when the brake pedal is depressed. The original recall was linked to potential corrosion of a wiring connector.
