GM Recalls 10 Chevy Cruze and Chevy Volt Cars

Ten, count 'em, 10 Chevy Cruze and Volt cars recalled to replace steering gear assemblies.

Posted in Recalls

— General Motors is recalling 10 (ten) model year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Cruze and 2015 Chevy Volt cars because the tie-rod can separate from the steering gear. GM says the defect was traced to an inner tie-rod not tightened to specification that can allow the tie-rod to separate.

A busted tie-rod separated from the steering gear means no steering ability.

The recalled Chevrolet Cruze cars were manufactured November 8, 2013, to March 12, 2015, and the 2015 Chevrolet Volts were built on April 11, 2014.

The recall starts sometime in July 2015. Chevy dealers will replace the steering gear assemblies in the 10 cars.

Owners of the 2014-2015 Chevrolet Cruze and 2015 Chevy Volt can call the automaker at 800-222-1020 and use recall number 15386.
