GM Issues Stop-Sale Order on 2013-'14 Chevrolet Cruze for Possible Airbag Problem


Just the Facts:
  • General Motors issued a stop-sale order on new or used 2013-'14 Chevrolet Cruze sedans because of a possible airbag problem.
  • "Certain vehicles may be equipped with a suspect driver's airbag inflator module that may have been assembled with an incorrect part," wrote James Cain, a GM spokesman.
  • About 33,000 vehicles may be affected by the action.

DETROIT — General Motors issued a stop-sale order on new or used 2013-'14 Chevrolet Cruze sedans because of a possible airbag problem, the automaker confirmed for Edmunds late Wednesday.

"Certain vehicles may be equipped with a suspect driver's airbag inflator module that may have been assembled with an incorrect part," wrote James Cain, a GM spokesman.

About 33,000 vehicles may be affected by the action.

Chevrolet dealers in the U.S. and Canada were told to halt sales of the car.

"We are working diligently with the supplier of the defective part to identify specific vehicles affected and expect to resume deliveries by the end of this week once those vehicles are identified," Cain added.

He said the 2013-'14 Cruze has not been recalled at this point.

"We are pulling facts together but have not recalled (the cars) yet," he wrote. "However, we recognize these vehicles need to be repaired and are moving quickly. We know now that most vehicles in dealer stock are not affected."

The airbag supplier is Takata Corp.

The stop-sale order is the latest safety issue for General Motors, which has issued 44 recalls this year covering 20 million vehicles.

Owners can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.

Edmunds says: We will update information on the 2013-'14 Chevrolet Cruze as it becomes available. In the meantime, if you own one of the cars and have questions, it's best to contact Chevrolet customer service or your dealer.
