All Lordstown Cruzes being recalled for inspection

The Plain Dealer of Cleveland is reporting that General Motors Corp. is recalling all 154,122 Chevrolet Cruzes it has made in Lordstown, saying mistakes on the assembly line could cause safety problems.

GM on Wednesday recalled the Cruze for a transmission problem that allows it to slip out of gear during driving or while parked, and it expanded a smaller recall over steering problem, the newspaper is reporting tonight.

GM said all Cruze owners should immediately call their dealers to schedule an inspection of their cars. Dealers will make sure that the steering and transmission connections are correct, possibly tightening a few bolts on some cars.

"We think very few vehicles in the population have either issue," GM Vice President of Global Quality Terry Woychowski said in a written statement.
