You should avoid getting rear-ended in a 2018 Sonic until you get your seats repaired as part of this recall. I mean, you should probably just avoid getting rear ended in general, but I think you know what I mean.

General Motors is recalling 71 model year 2018 Chevy Sonics because the seatback frames may not be strong enough to hold in a rear-end crash … The problem is a joint in the driver-side seatback frame that wasn't properly welded, making the frame too weak to hold in a crash.
