2013 Chevrolet Cruze Recalls

The driver's front airbag inflator may have been manufactured with an incorrect part. If a crash occurs requiring deployment of the driver's airbag, the inflator may rupture and the airbag may not inflate. The rupture could cause metal fragments to strike and potentially seriously injure the vehicle occupants. Additionally, if the airbag does not inflate, the driver is at an increased risk of injury. Dealers will replace the driver side airbag to correct this concern.

These Cruze models are being recalled because the right front axle shaft can break. If this were to occur while driving the vehicle would coast to a stop. If parked in this condition without the parking brake applied, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly. Either case has an increased risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and replace the right axle assembly as necessary. Replacement parts are not yet ready, a second letter will be sent when they become available and the recall can be completed. This is an expansion of a previous recall, parts previously installed may need to be replaced again.

The two half shafts transfer power from the transmission to the front wheels. On vehicles equipped with a manual transmission, the right half shaft could break unexpectedly resulting in loss of drive power to the drive wheels. If this were to happen the vehicle would coast to a stop and no longer be able to move under its own power. Dealers will replace the right half shaft assembly on affected vehicles to correct this concern.
