Axle shaft behind latest GM recall

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJRT) -

(03/29/14) - General Motors is recalling 172,000 Chevrolet Cruze compact cars because the right front axle shaft can fracture and separate while being driven.
 
The recall affects cars from the 2013 and 2014 model years equipped with 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engines.
 
If a shaft fractures, the wheels would lose power without warning and the cars would coast to a stop.
 
GM says it has warranty reports of several dozen shaft fractures. It is not aware of any crashes or injuries.
 
Dealers will replace the shafts free of charge.
 
The recall allows dealers to resume selling affected Cruzes. GM issued a stop sale order on the cars Thursday night.
 
The recall also covers about 2,500 replacement shafts used to fix manual transmission Cruzes that were recalled last September.
