Dont have a link to the TSB at the moment if someone wants to link it. But a Dealership stop sale has been ordered on 2013-2014 Cruzes for possible defective driver side airbag component. Hopefully more details soon.

From what I've read today on this issue, it appears that the Cruze stop sell order is different from the air bag recalls all of the other brands are involved with so far. The common denominator is the air bag supplier, Takata. This Japanese headquartered company seems to have a ton of problems.

First, the Cruze issue is related to an incorrect part that was used to assemble the airbag. This is what I posted in post number 16 of this thread. I am not sure why it took nearly a year for the stop sell order to come out, but I think I have an idea.

Second, the other brands air bag problems are related to the propellant breaking down due to high humidity, either at the time of manufacture, or where the vehicle resides now. They aren't sure what the cause is yet. Takata builds the air bag assemblies in Mexico and Wisconsin.

Third, Takata's bookkeeping is so bad, both they and the car manufacturers are not really sure what VINs got the bad batches of air bags with the problematic propellant.

Fourth, For the same reasons, they are still trying to figure out which Cruze VINs got the air bags with the wrong part.

I guess the answer is the same for all of the other issues that haven't been fixed yet: PATIENCE.

So if bought a 14 3 days before stop sale order should I call dealer? Or will I get a letter in the mail?
I bet you get a recall notice in the mail.

With all these recalls for 2013-2014 Cruze I hope they get taken care of before Chevy starts production on 2015 Cruze.
Heh Heh, I bet the change over is not too many weeks away.
