2014-'15 Chevrolet Cruze, 2015 Chevrolet Volt Recalled for Potential Steering Loss


WASHINGTON General Motors is recalling nine 2014-'15 Chevrolet Cruze sedans and one 2015 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid car in the U.S. for potential steering loss, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"In the affected vehicles, the inner tie rod may not be tightened to specification, allowing the tie rod to separate from the steering gear," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "Separation of the tie rod from the steering gear could result in the loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash."

GM spokesman Alan Adler told Edmunds on Thursday that GM is not aware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities linked to the recall.

The recall also includes one 2013 Cruze in Canada.

The affected Cruzes were built from November 8, 2013 to March 12, 2015. The affected Volt was built on April 11, 2014.

Chevrolet dealers will replace the steering-gear assembly. The recall is expected to begin in July. Owners can contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020.

Edmunds says: If you own one of these cars, it's time to schedule a service appointment with your dealer.
