U.S. safety regulators are looking to expanding a small recall of Pontiac G6.These Pontiacs are midsize cars and the recall includes up to 550,000 vehicles. In 2009, about 8,000 of these cars were recall. This recall was placed due to problems with the brake lights and because the cruise control on the vehicles were not working properly.

The 2009 recall only involved the cars that were made in January of 2009. Today, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration made a post on their website. Their post explained that all G-6’s that were manufactured between the year 2005 and 2009 model years should be added to the recall.

The safety agency says it has received 212 complaints from consumers that brake lights won’t come on. This is when the pedal is pressed. The lights also may come on for no reason. Some of the complaints also say the cruise control disengages for no reason, or it may not work at all.

GM is currently trying to get to the bottom of the investigation. So far, there have been no reports of injuries or accidents involving the recall.

In the 2009 recall, GM traced the problem to corrosion in a wiring connector. Dealers were to fix it by putting a lubricant on the connector to prevent corrosion.

Although the Chevrolet Malibu and Saturn Aura share many components with the G6, they are not included in the probe, GM spokesman Alan Adler said.
