2011 Chevrolet Cruze With Detached Steering Wheel Caught On Video
While we reported on the recall regarding the Chevrolet Cruze and its defective steering wheel issu e, we didn’t realize just how severe the problem was until we saw video of the defect, and the very real consequences it could pose.
A Youtube user uploaded a video of one of the vehicles, which shows the steering wheel hanging on by a couple wires and nothing more. The car in question only had 1600 miles on it, and a mother, grandmother and 19 month infant were travelling in the vehicle when the steering wheel detached at 65 mph while travelling on a highway.
While General Motors is taking steps to fix the issue, seeing it in person raises a whole host of questions regarding the matter – namely, how the hell could this happen on a modern production car that’s otherwise well built?
