Following an incident on 1 March 2011, when a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze’s steering wheel came loose from the steering column, the Detroit automaker decided to issue a voluntary recall on certain Cruze vehicles. According to General Motors, the steering wheel might have been improperly fastened during production and could detach from the steering column.

In a filing to the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration, General Motors stated that the affected assembly plant withheld shipment of 2,021 Cruze vehicles until they were inspected for the potential default. GM addded that the inspection found no additional problem with the steering wheels on these cars. The company also issued a notice to dealers to inspect all unsold vehicles prior to sale. GM said that no additional steering wheel fastener abnormalities have been found to date.

As a precautionary measure, the company will recall a total of 2,100 Chevrolet Cruze sedans from the 2011 model year to inspect the steering wheel. The safety recall is expected to begin in April.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
