GM Recall’s Chevy Cruze Due to Fire Safety Issue
June 25, 2012
If you own a 2011 or 2012 Chevy ” Cruze,” you need to cruise it on into your local dealer/mechanic soon.
General Motors just announced a recall on 475-thousand of the Cruze model vehicles, due to what is being called a fire risk.
It’s been determined that there is a defect in the engine shield, responsible for keeping flammable liquids from becoming trapped in the engine compartment, and this poses a serious enough fire hazard to implement the recall.
The good news is, instead of the consumer being hassled with returning the vehicle altogether, the fix is simple enough to be handled by a local GM certified mechanic and is estimated to only take around 30 minutes. Of course, the repair will be free of charge.
Remember, you can’t put a price tag on safety, and when it’s free, there’s no excuse to ignore it.
