GM recalls 413,000 Chevy Cruze vehicles
Detroit, MI, United States (4E) – General Motors (GM) is issuing a major recall of its Chevrolet Cruze vehicles linked to engine fires. Consumers will be able to take their car to a GM dealership where the repair should take less than an hour.
According to a statement released Friday, GM says, “Improper engine oil change procedures on these vehicles can result in the spilling or dripping of oil. If oil contacts hot engine or exhaust system surfaces, and the engine shield, the shield may ignite and burn, resulting in a possible engine compartment fire.”
The recall includes 413,418 Cruzes built in Lordstown, Ohio, and sold in the United States, Canada and Israel.
“The most important thing for our customers to know is that we are proactively working to assure the Cruze is the safe and durable car they purchased,” GM Vice President of Global Quality Alicia Boler-Davis explained. “We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by these actions.”
