2011 Chevrolet Cruze Steering

Earlier this month, General Motors recalled 2,500 Chevrolet Cruze sedans in the United States and Canada after one vehicle had an improperly fastened steering wheel.

GM is now recalling a total of 154,112 Chevrolet Cruze models in North America to inspect for proper installation of the steering wheel, the company said.

Of the 2011 model year Cruze involved in the recall, 120,295 with automatic transmissions will be checked for proper installation of their transmission shift linkage. Vehicles on dealer lots will also be inspected.

“We think very few vehicles in the population have either issue, but we chose to conduct these inspections to give customers additional peace of mind about the quality of the Cruze,” said GM Vice President of Global Quality Terry Woychowski. “I conducted a quality inspection of the Lordstown plant this week, and I am confident we have made the necessary process changes so neither of these conditions happens again.”
