General Motors will recall 2,100 Chevrolet Cruze sedans after a steering wheel came loose from the car's steering column recently. General Motors claims that no injuries resulted from the problem, and a bolt that was not properly installed was the culprit.
"We made a mistake, but we're confident that we've got it fixed," said GM spokesman Allen Adler. GM claims it has inspected 2,000 cars at the Ohio plant that produces the car. Dealers have isolated the potentially dangerous vehicles and will inspect them as well. While NHTSA would normally issue an official recall notice, the government shutdown that may occur due to a political dispute may prevent it from being released in a timely manner.
