GM recalls 2013/2014 Chevy Cruze vehicles over manual transmissions

Oct. 30, 2013
Right front shaft may fracture and separate on some vehicles.

General Motors is recalling certain model year 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles equipped with manual transmissions (MF3/MR5) and manufactured Jan. 24, 2013, through Aug. 1, 2013. On the affected vehicles, the right front half shaft may fracture and separate, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

If the half shaft fractures and separates while driving, the vehicle would lose power and coast to a stop. If a vehicle with a fractured half shaft is parked without the parking brake applied, the vehicle could move unexpectedly. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

General Motors has notified owners. Dealers will replace the half shaft assembly, free of charge. The safety recall began on Oct. 15, 2013. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-521-7300. This is General Motors campaign number 13276.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
