Holden is investigating whether its Australian-made Holden Cruze small car has a fire-related safety defect after roughly half a million Chevrolet-badged Cruze sedans produced in the US were recalled over the weekend. A total of 475,418 Chevrolet Cruze sedans manufactured between October 2, 2009 and May 31, 2012 at General Motors’ Lordstown, Ohio plant have been recalled to repair a defect that could see oil come into contact with hot engine or exhaust system surfaces, potentially starting a fire. The recall affects 413,418 Cruzes sold in the US, 61,299 in Canada and 701 in Israel.
Holden says it is aware of the recall initiated by GM North America and is currently investigating its own vehicles to guarantee their safety. “We are not aware of any cases of engine compartment fires in Australia or New Zealand related to the condition being investigated in North America,” Holden said in a statement.
