Pontiacs in safety recall

DETROIT // General Motors has killed off the Pontiac brand but before production ceases altogether, the beleaguered company has to endure one last embarrassing product recall. The 2008 and 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP has been recalled by GM and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over two potential safety issues. The recall affects 35,038 G8 sedans. Possible incorrect programming of the brake pedal position switch may lead to the brake lights being constantly illuminated, and certain G8s have incorrectly programmed tyre-pressure monitors, which could lead to a failure to identify under-inflated tyres. The recall will begin on June 5.
