Certain Missouri GM cars excluded from recall because of location

ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – It’s not unusual to hear about a manufacturer’s recall notice for defective parts on a car, but in 2009, Chevrolet issued a recall on its 2006 Cobalts for a leaking fuel pump for cars in so-called “warm states” out west and down south.

However, a News 4 viewer found out her car had the problem, but was not included in one of the “warm states.”

GM says it is much more common to issue a recall for cold weather states for issues prompted by salt, ice and snow, but GM did confirm that this recall is one of the rare ones for warm weather states.

According to GM, Missouri is not a “warm weather” state.

A GM spokesperson promised to investigate the viewer’s case, and said that customer satisfaction is important to GM. He said each of the cases are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
