In April, Chevy recalled 2,100 Cruze sedans due to concerns that the steering wheel may fall off. Now, the popular car is being recalled again.
Approximately 130,000 vehicles are being recalled because a bolt attaching the steering shafts may not have been properly installed; this may cause the shafts to separate, resulting in a loss of steering. The 2011 vehicles were manufactured from October 2, 2009 through April 21, 2011.
In a separate recall notice, just over 100,000 Cruze vehicles are being recalled due to transmission problems; while the transmission may appear to be in park, it may not actually be. This may cause the car to rollaway because it is still in gear. This recall affects 2011 model year vehicles manufactured from October 6, 2009 through April 27, 2011.
