2011 Chevrolet Cruze: Recall for Steering Shaft

May 05, 2011


Yup, yesterday General Motors announced another recall (the previous one being the detached steering wheel issue) for the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. Apparently the steering shaft on some of the Cruzes was improperly installed, an issue discovered when "a customer lost steering control in a parking lot" but, didn't get in an accident. Also, the cars with automatic transmissions will be checked for proper installation of transmission shift linkage.

Analysts guess that this recall won't impact the Cruze's sales. April was a big month for the Chevy, wonder how May will look.

In any case, if you have a Cruze a visit to the dealership should only take about an hour; the fix doesn't require parts.
