General Motors has ordered a stop-delivery order on the 2013-2014 Chevrolet Cruze.

Since the massive ignition switch recall, General Motors has been taking a proactive approach in ensuring vehicles being sold are as safe as possible. Unfortunately that’s not the case for the 2013-2014 Cruze, which according to GM, may have a “suspect” driver’s side airbag inflator module. The notice to dealers said, “The inflator module may have been assembled with an incorrect part.”

Dealers are being asked to hold new and used Cruzes on their lots and are not allowed to deliver them to customers “until further instructions are received.” The company is trying to determine which vehicles are fitted with the suspect part so that the unaffected cars can be sold.

So far this year, GM has issued 44 recalls that has covered 20-million vehicles globally.
