General Motors had recently introduced a facelift to their Cruze sedan in India. The manufacturer now has issued a silent recall of their sedan. They claim there is an issue with a PVC bracket that keeps the wire in place within the engine area.
The American manufacturer will be replacing the faulty part for free. General Motors has already begun contacting owners to come and replace the part. The replacing of parts won't cost much time and will take a matter of two hours.
In 2013 General Motors had recalled their Sail U-VA and sedan, along with the Tavera in India. They were also reports of a faulty emission test on their MUV models, which resulted in a legal case against the American manufacturer.
It is unclear how many Cruze sedans are affected by the recall. Currently General Motors sell roughly 130 Cruze on average every month. It is falling far behind its competitors and their sales keep diminishing frequently.
General Motors India offers its Cruze sedan only with a diesel mill. It is powered by a 2.0-litre, in-line four engine. This engine is capable of generating 166 bhp, along with 380 Nm of peak torque output. There is a transmission option on offer in the form of a 6-speed manual or 6-speed auto.
The Cruze sedan costs INR 13,80,000 to INR 16,30,000 ex-showroom, Delhi. It competitors offer more bang for the buck and General Motors is falling behind in this department. It faces tough competition from Renault's Fluence, Volkswagen's Jetta and Skoda's new Octavia.
