Chevy Halts Cruze Sales, Doesn’t Say Why

General Motors has ordered that Chevrolet dealers stop selling some 2013 and 2014 Cruze models, though the automaker hasn’t said why. 

An e-mail, obtained by Automotive News, was sent to all U.S. Chevy dealers that included an urgent stop-delivery order for some Cruze models fit with a 1.4-liter turbo engine. A reason for the order was not disclosed in the e-mail, and it is also unknown how many vehicles are affected and whether or not GM is planning a recall on already sold Cruze models.

Dealers were told that details regarding the stop delivery will be provided in the near future. Vehicle identification numbers were provided to dealers so that the affected cars can be found.

GM is in the midst of recalling 1.6 million vehicles because of faulty ignition switches, an action that has triggered a Federal investigation of the company’s recall process. Since, GM has initiated another recall that affects an additional 1.5 million vehicles for a variety of issues. CEO Mary Barra has also ordered an internal review of safety processes in the wake of these recalls.

The Cruze has been recalled in the past for fire risks and brake issues.
