GM's Chevy Sonic has quickly become one of the most popular of subcompact vehicles in North America. In fact, the Sonic was listed 5th on the U.S. News ranking of 40 Affordable Small Cars. After a few years of previously negative reviews, Chevys subcompact car was finally gaining some positive attention.
Unfortunately for GM, 2012 seems to have brought a change in luck. GM, along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, announced a voluntary recall of 45,000 2012 Sonic vehicles. The recall came due to a potential defect in the windshield washer system.
According to reports, a hose responsible for the transport of fluid from the container to the dispenser may unexpectedly disconnect due to the use of an incorrect lubricant during production. If, in fact, that disconnection were to happen, the windshield wipers would not functions properly, leaving them unable to clean the windshield.
While commonly overlooked, windshield wipers are a critical factor in a vehicles security. Drivers are able to clearly see the road, without distraction, which prevents millions of auto accidents a year, especially during bad weather.
