2012 Chevrolet Cruze Recalls

Ignition Key May Be Removed Without Transmission Lever Shifted To Park

The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.

Driver'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.

Power 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.
