The Saturn Ion, Chevrolet Equinox, and Pontiac Torrent vehicles. The recall applies to the warm-weather  states of Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, and California.
The automobiles  have plastic parts that are connected to the fuel pump which could crack. If the crack gets large enough, fuel could leak out of the vehicle and cause a fire.  GM states that there have been no reports of fire or injury related to the leak.
