The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced it is launching a probe on older Chevrolet Cobalt cars and HHR wagons in the United States due to complaints of fuel leaks. A total of 614,000 vehicles from the 2008 to 2010 model years will be covered.

“The fuel leaks are the result of corrosion of the metal fuel lines underneath the vehicle towards the rear and in the vicinity of the left rear wheel well,” the NHTSA said, citing 208 complaints of fuel leaks from customers.
