GM orders Chevy dealers to stop selling turbocharged 2013-2014 Cruze

Article by Christian A., on March 30, 2014

General Motors has ordered Chevrolet dealers to stop selling some Cruze compact cars due to an undisclosed issue, GM said in an e-mailed memo sent to all Chevy dealers in the US, as obtained by Automotive News. The stop-delivery order applies to some Cruze models (model years 2013 and 2014) powered by a 1.4-liter turbo engine.

GM spokesman Alan Adler confirmed that Chevrolet dealers received a notice pertaining to some Cruze models but couldn’t provide details right away. Dealers received a list of vehicle identification numbers to help them identify the affected vehicles. "Instructions for releasing the involved vehicles from this stop delivery will be provided in the near future," the memo says.

A Chevrolet dealer in the Midwest remarked that around 10 percent of his Cruze inventory is covered by the ordered. GM last month issued a recall of 1.37 million small cars in the US covering 2003-2007 model years, including the Chevrolet Cobalt, for faulty ignition switches linked to 34 crashes and 12 fatalities.

GM recently issued three unrelated recalls for 1.5 million vehicles in the US after chief executive Mary Barra directed a review of internal safety processes. The latest recalls include the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana, the Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
