2012 Chevrolet Cruze Recalls

The driver's front airbag includes a safety device called a shorting bar - this prevents unexpected deployment of the airbag when it is removed from the vehicle. In this case, the shorting bar may intermittently contact the airbag terminals while it is installed in the vehicle. This could result in illumination of the airbag warning light or the airbag may not deploy when necessary. Failure of the airbag to deploy would increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering wheel airbag coil to correct this concern.

The driver side frontal air bag has a shorting bar which may intermittently contact the air bag terminals. If the bar and terminals are contacting each other at the time of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal airbag, that airbag will not deploy, increasing the driver's risk of injury. General Motors dealers will replace the steering wheel airbag coil to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12261

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.
