Chevrolet Cruze Recall, fire danger


Flash - Federal Safety Investigators just announced a General Motors recall of over 413,000 late model Chevrolet Cruze sedans to modify the engine shield, according to Paul Eisenstein, a writer with TheDetroitBureau.com. Some of them may also involve another recent recall for vehicles whose fuel tank straps were not properly welded in place to hold the fuel tank on the Chevrolet Cruze vehicle.


The fire-danger recalled vehicles were built at the Lordstown, Ohio plant between September 2010 and May 2012 and are 2011 and 2012 model year vehicles.

You can find where your Chevrolet Cruze was built by looking at the factory build plate located on the driver door jamb.

It turns out that the engine shield can itself catch fire if oil is spilled during a regular maintenance oil change. Also, if the transmission leaks fluid, that can lead to fire.

This follow the expansion of a Toyota recall last week from 800,000 to 1.4 millions vehicles, including the Camry and RAV4 models, because of defective driver window switches, and the expansion of a Jeep defect investigation to 5 million vehicles with potential rear mounted fuel tank problems.
