On certain vehicles, under severe conditions, water may enter the driver’s window and reach the master power window switch.

On certain vehicles, corrosion within the exhaust channel of the intake manifold may occur and lead to leakage of exhaust gas.

Dealers will replace the intake on affected vehicles.
2009-2010 Pontiac Vibe
Vehicles affected: 28,466

On certain vehicles, there is a possibility that clearance between the clamp on the power steering pressure hose and the brake tube for the left rear brake is insufficient.

Dealers will inspect and replace the brake tube on affected vehicles.
