On certain passenger vehicles equipped with a 1. 6l engine, during a ncap severe frontal crash test, the fuel line in the engine compartment developed a fracture. In addition, the crash damage caused four short circuits in the fuse block, the combination of which allowed the fuel pump to continue running and fuel leaked onto the ground.
Severity of the Defect

Dealers will replace the fuse block and install a new section of fuel line that has been redesigned free of charge. The recall began on November 16, 2006. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438.
