2012 Chevrolet Cruze RecallsDriver's Front Air Bag Defective
The driver's front air bag has a shorting bar which may intermittently contact the air bag terminals. This would cause the air bag to not function as designed in an accident. Dealers will replace the steering wheel air bag coil free of charge to resolve the problem.
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.
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.
