Recall of Over 100,000 Chevrolet Cruze Models between 2016 and 2018


June 05, 2018

June 4, 2018 (auto123.com).  According to an online report at auto123.com, Chevrolet recalls numerous Chevy Cruze models manufactured between 2016 and 2018.

The first fleet of Chevrolet Cruze models was also subject to an alarming amount of recalls, such that the sale of the car had been stopped for a temporary amount of time.

The second generation issued in 2016, making Chevrolet cross its fingers that it will be released without issues.  “The operative word among automotive experts and for consumers was: caution.”

However after three years of the Cruze being available to the public, a recall has now been issued, which affects over 100,000 vehicles.  According to the report, “the recall applies to LS models built between 2016 and 2018, which are not equipped with spare tires but instead carry a tire inflator kit. A rear-impact collision involving these models has a greater risk of causing a fuel leak. The great quantity of potentially leaking fuel in turn causes a greater risk of fire.”

The increase in the risk of fire in the cars affected by the recall was uncovered by General Motors during internal testing.  

Per the report, “GM service centre technicians will install as lock ring on the fuel tank to protect the vapor pressure sensor in the event of a rear-impact collision.”
