FREDERICK, Md. — In light of the recent General Motors recalls on the Chevy Cobalt and Pontiac G5, the National Auto Auction Association has issued a recommendation for all auctions to immediately stop selling these vehicles.

The vehicles covered by the recall are the 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007-2010 Pontiac G5.

NAAA officials stressed that these vehicles should not be sold until the steering recall is completed.

Officials went on to note that on March 5, GM released a bulletin to halt the sale of all new and used units covered by the recall.

Basically, the statement said, "These vehicles must be held and not delivered to customers or dealer-traded until the required recall is completed."

The bulletin also noted that GM Remarketing has offered instructions for handling these units via GM Closed and GMAC Open Sales.
