GM lifts stop-delivery order on 2013, 2014 Cruzes

DETROIT, Mich. (WYTV) – A blanket stop-delivery order issued Wednesday by General Motors for new and used 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze sedans has been lifted, according to GM Lordstown spokesman Tom Mock.

Mock said GM has identified which vehicles have the potential airbag problem and will notify the dealerships to not sell those cars. If the cars already have been sold, the owners will be notified so needed repairs can be made.

Earlier on Wednesday, General Motors spokesperson Jim Cain confirmed that General Motors was telling dealers to halt delivery of new and used 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze sedans until further notice because of a potential airbag problem. Some of the cars may have a “suspect” driver’s side airbag inflator module, according to Cain.

GM ordered dealers to hold the cars on their lots and not deliver them “until further instructions are received…in the near future,” according to a notice sent Wednesday.

Cain said earlier the company was trying to identify which vehicles are equipped with the suspect part so that the unaffected cars could be sold.
