GM recalls 293,000 Cruzes for brake failure problem

LORDSTOWN

General Motors is recalling nearly 293,000 Chevrolet Cruze compact cars in the U.S. because the power-assisted brakes can fail.

The company says the recall affects Cruzes made in Lordstown from the 2011 and 2012 model years.

The power brake boosters can fail and in rare cases, drivers may have to put extra pressure on the pedals to stop the cars, according to GM.

Cruze brake problems have caused 27 low-speed crashes but no injuries, the company said.

Dealers will replace a switch in the power brake vacuum pipe assembly for free.

Why isn't it referenced as the Cruze "proudly made in Lordstown" like it is in every other article?

Looks like a low life mentally commenting on the Cruz and the unions. If it wasn't for Lordstown we would be another Detroit The unions made this country and got you all the benefits you are getting such as vacations, paid holidays, working only 5 days a week not "mandatory" 7 days and benefits. The companys wouldn't of gave you crap without unions. Read a book about Ford Motor when they 1st started up, no breaks, no lunch, you had to pee you did it on the assembly line in a water grate below your work station. Its you foreign car buyers that make the chinese smile and prosper, Teach your kids and grandkids this "Thank you for shopping at Walmarts" making min. wage less than 40 hrs per week, in bad working conditions with your types of mentality. Move to china they are non union.
