December 60, 2020

The Chevrolet Cruze (both the 2018 and 2019 model years) is being recalled for a potential oil transmission leak due to missing bolts. It could lead to a loss of power, increasing the risk of a crash. If there is an ignition source, this leaked oil can also increase the potential for a fire, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

A total of 194,095 vehicles are being recalled, but the majority (122,980 vehicles) will pertain to the Chevrolet Cruze.

Owners began to receive notifications on December 14th.

Other affected vehicles include:

  • 2018 Chevrolet Malibu
  • 2018–2019 Buick LaCrosse
  • 2018–2020 Chevrolet Equinox and Traverse and GMC Terrain
  • 2019–2020 Buick Enclave, Buick Encore, Cadillac XT4, Chevrolet Blazer, and GMC Acadia
  • 2020 Cadillac XT6

Another General Motors recall involving 5.9 million vehicles is in effect to replace the Takata airbags. This announcement comes four years after GM deemed the replacement unnecessary. These airbags have caused 25 deaths and 300 injuries worldwide, in what the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has called “the largest and most complex safety recall in U.S. history.”

The airbag inflators may explode because of propellant degradation after long-term exposure to high humidity, extreme temperatures, and temperature cycling. An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants, resulting in serious injury or death.

Affected vehicles include:

  • 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickup trucks
  • 2007-2014 GMC Sierra 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickup trucks
  • 2007-2013 Cadillac Escalade EXT pickup trucks
  • 2007-2013 Chevrolet Avalanche pickup trucks
  • 2007-2014 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUVs
  • 2007-2014 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs
  • 2007-2014 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV SUVs

Owners of the aforementioned vehicles should go the NHTSA website or NHTSA’s new recall app to see if their vehicle is involved in the recall.
