GM recalls the Chevrolet Cruze for possible steering problems

Thu, 05 May 2011

General Motors said on Wednesday that it will recall 154,112 Chevrolet Cruze sedans to check for a problem with the steering shaft.

A GM spokesman said the issue was discovered when a customer lost steering control in a parking lot but did not have an accident. GM says no accidents have occurred because of the problem.

The recalled cars were built at the Lordstown, Ohio, plant from the beginning of production until April 21. Few of the cars should have the problem, according to GM. It has made a change in the manufacturing process to address it.

GM said it will file documents with federal safety regulators on Thursday and will mail notices to customers next week.

Last month, GM recalled 2,100 copies of the Cruze to check for an improperly fastened steering wheel.

GM also reported two other recalls:

-- The windshield-wiper-motor crank nut could come loose on the 2011 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups.

-- Owners of 2011 Chevy Express and GMC full-size vans are being notified about possible brake-fluid leaks.
