Pontiac Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Pontiac Vibe vehicles equipped with 1.8L engine and originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. When driving under certain unique conditions in extremely low ambient temperatures, the intake manifold suction port for the brake vacuum can become locked due to the freezing of condensation resulting from positive crankcase ventilation.
Dealers will modify the brake vacuum line free of charge. A special advisory letter will be sent to owners of vehicles registered in all other states in the same time frame. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before October 23, 2009. Owners may contact Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668 or at the owner center at
