Complaints to the American regulatory authority came from the owners of the old Chevrolet Cobalt and Chevrolet HHR. After such a collective appeal, a check was initiated.

In the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating fuel leak complaints in the Chevrolet Cobalt and HHR models that rolled off the assembly line back in 2008-2010.

It is known that the investigation will affect more than 614,000 cars. This information is shared by Autoblog. Fuel leaks, as follows from the NHTSA official comment, were corroded by metal fuel lines for cars.

In total, according to specialized media, the American regulator received 208 complaints from car owners about this defect. A detected malfunction can lead to a serious negative consequence: there is a risk of car fire.

As for the automaker itself, General Motors decided to help NHTSA experts in the investigation.
