A safety- or emissions-related bulletin issued by the vehicle manufacturer, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or the Department of Transportation (DOT). These are different than a service bulletin.
A recall involves work that must be done at no charge to the consumer by an authorized dealer of the vehicle make involved.
Recalls have been on the rise in the last few years in the automotive industry. A few of the very large recalls that affect millions of vehicles are the GM ignition switch recall, foreign car air bag recall and the emissions cheating recall.

Why is the recall for the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt fuel leak issue limited to certain VIN NUMBERS and not for all of the vehicles that were produced. I have the same issue as described in the article but my vin isn’t covered by the recall, how can this be. I’m in Pennsylvania and it’s not covered, when I called the GM hotline to ask why they say that it depends on which plant manufactured the vehicle.What a load of crap. The problem is still the same ,where you live at should not matter. MAKE GOOD ON YOUR SUB STANDARD WORK GM and offer the recall for all cars produced. This is a safety hazard that needs to be addressed.Step up and do the right thing before people are hurt due to your company’s neglect to offer this repair to whomever needs it done.
