2011 Chevrolet Cruze RecallsPower Brake Assist May Fail
The electric vacuum pump that provides power assist to the braking system may fail, resulting in extra braking effort needed to stop the vehicle. Dealers will replace a microswitch in the power brake vacuum pipe assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
Attachment welds for the fuel tank strap secondary brackets may have been omitted during vehicle assembly. In the event of a crash, the fuel tank could come loose, possibly allowing fuel to leak and increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the vehicle for missing welds. If the vehicle is missing welds, dealers will secure the bracket attachments with fasteners. The General Motors recall number is 12133.
Spilled or dripping oil (such as after an oil change) may collect in the engine shield (bellypan) near hot engine or exhaust system surfaces. As a result, the oil and the engine shield may ignite and burn, causing an engine compartment fire. Dealers will modify the engine shield to prevent fluid from contacting the shield. Also, on vehicles with a manual transmission, protective tape will be applied to the electronic power steering wire harness. The General Motors recall number is 12081.
