Big Recall For GM's Small Chevy Cruze

Forbes -- Chevrolet Cruze is a small car carrying big hopes for General Motors. But on Friday, GM said it is recalling nearly a half million Cruzes — all that it has built in North America during the past two years — to fix a problem that could result in engine fires. It’s the second time GM has recalled pretty much its entire Cruze fleet, Nick Bunkley at Automotive News points out.

The latest GM recall covers 413,418 Cruzes sold in the United States during the 2011 and 2012 model years and another 60,000 sold in Canada. All the affected cars were built at GM’s plant in Lordstown, Ohio, from the start of production in 2010 through this past May.

Another reason not to buy a GM product - they sell them first and test them later.

Just one more recall and GM could wind up owning a half million Cruze's due to the "Lemon Law".

Nice they take responsibility and recall and repair the vehicles!!
Too bad they have to do it twice, seems like QA and engineering are
Lacking when you have to do it twice in a realtively short period!!

What is with all the recalls for potential engine fires? First Ford, now Chevy. Are they using the same design engineer?

i have a 2012 ECO Cruze and love it. i had the recall done at the 2nd service call. filter & oil change - tire rotation and recall work took 2 hours. with 17,000 miles on it, the average mixed driving mpg is 41 mpg - it is a great little car.
