Lordstown made Chevy Cruze included in latest GM recall

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT - General Motors is conducting six new safety recalls involving about 8.5 million vehicles in North America. 7.5 million of those vehicles are in the United States, bringing the total number of GM recalls this year to 28 million.

Included in the latest recall are 2011-2014 Lordstown made Chevy Cruze models that are equipped with an engine block heater. GM says that insulation on the  power cord  may become damaged during very cold conditions.

Other vehicles with the insulation issue include the 2012-2014 Chevrolet Sonic, 2013-14 Chevrolet Trax, Buick Encore and Verano.  While more than 20,000 of those vehicles were sold in North America, fewer than 3,000 were sold in the United States.

Other recalled vehicles include:

1997-2005 Chevrolet Malibu

1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue

1999-2004 Oldsmobile Alero

1999-2005 Pontiac Grand Am

2000-05 Chevrolet Impala & Monte Carlo

2004-08 Pontiac Grand Prix

7,610,862 vehicles

Some vehicles may not have had a “Superhold” joint fastener torqued to specification at the assembly plant.

2007-11 Chevrolet Silverado HD, GMC, Sierra, HD equipped with an auxiliary battery.

12,000 vehicles

An overload in the feed may cause the under hood fusible link to melt due to electrical overload, resulting in potential smoke or flames that could damage the electrical center cover and/or the nearby wiring harness conduit.

2005-07 Buick Ranier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender, Saab 9-7x.

2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT, GMC Envoy XL.

188,705 vehicles

A possible electrical short in the driver's door module that could disable the power door lock and window switches and, in rare cases, overheat the module.

Among the recalled vehicles, GM is aware of seven crashes, eight injuries and three fatalities. The fatal crashes occurred in older model full-size sedans being recalled for inadvertent ignition key rotation. There is no conclusive evidence that the defect condition caused those crashes.

Until the ignition recall repairs have been performed, it is very important that customers remove all items from their key ring, leaving only the vehicle key, and always use their seat belts. The key fob, if present, should also be removed from the key ring.

Owners can find out if their GM vehicle is being recalled by inputting the vehicle identification number into this website.

GM expects to take a charge of up to approximately $1.2 billion in the second quarter for the cost of recall-related repairs announced in the quarter. This amount includes a previously disclosed $700 million charge for recalls already announced during the quarter.
