GM Recall of Certain Model Year 2011 and 2012 Chevrolet Cruze Vehicles as Oil May Collect in the Engine Shield

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—June 24, 2012.

Summary:  General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2011 and 2012 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles manufactured from October 2, 2009, through May 31, 2012. Spilled or dripping oil (such as after an oil change) may collect in the engine shield (bellypan) near hot engine or exhaust system surfaces. As a result, the oil and the engine shield may ignite and burn.

Consequence: Either condition could result in an engine compartment fire, possibly causing injury or death.

Remedy:  GM will notify owners, and dealers will modify the engine shield to prevent fluid from contacting the shield. Also, on vehicles with a manual transmission, dealers will apply a protective tape to the electronic power steering wire harness. Repairs will be performed free of charge to the owner. The Safety Recall is expected to begin on, or about, July 11, 2012. Owners may contact the Chevrolet Owner Center at 1-866-694-6546.

Notes:  GM’s Campaign Number is 12081. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
