General Motors reveals broad recall, including Chevy Cruze

General Motors, the largest automaker in the United States, has announced three recalls across several brands — including economy cars to vans — and most notably its top-selling 2011 Chevrolet Cruze.

The Cruze, the top-selling GM car in April, is experiencing steering shift installation problems among 154,112 car built at its plant in Lordstown, Ohio, from last summer through April 21.

The problem has since been resolved, but the recall is necessary on the Cruze editions sold in the United States and Canada since last September.General Motors reveals broad recall, including Chevy Cruze 1

Additionally, more than 120,000 Cruze models with an automatic transmission will also be inspected to ensure the transmission shift linkage was properly installed. GM said.

General Motors said no accidents or injuries had been reported in the Cruze recall. Last month, GM recalled 2,100 Cruze cars to inspect for an improperly fastened steering wheel.

General Motors also announced the windshield wiper motor crank arm could come loose on some 2011 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks, affecting 6,303 vehicles, including 4,674 trucks in the United States.

Additionally, possible brake fluid leaks prompted it to recall 8,723 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans for the model year 2011.
