Moved to Service Issues. I'm glad they're going to fix them all at one time.
Me too. Thinking back over the "no brakes" threads I've seen here I can't remember any that were for manuals. However, I think I have seen a couple for the LS trims. If I'm remembering correctly I can see this recall being expanded.
In the US car manufacturers are required to provide recalls for 10 years from the end of the model year. Chrysler just went through a fight with the NHTSA over the gas tank on one of the Jeep models from 1997 to 2005.It appears that there is a vacuum solenoid just to the left of the liquid reservior for the master cylinder on the brake booster.
I have no confirmed details, but if that's the issue it appears like it will be a fast inexpensive fix. Given it's a safety system I believe GM is responsible well beyond the 3 year 36,000 warranty so it will be free at the dealership.
I have an open recall for the splash shield, and I really like how clean the original splash shield keeps the engine clean in a salty winter.. Well that's another issue..
It's very possible your dealership didn't even know about this recall. I have discovered that dealerships frequently find out the same way we do, from the media. There is a process for recalls. First based on production records, GM agrees with the NHTSA on the VIN numbers involved in the recall. Then they start the process of acquiring any parts needed so they can ship those parts to the local distribution centers. Then they notify dealerships. The media usually finds out from the NHTSA as soon as the recall specifics are finalized between the NHTSA and manufacturer. Depending on the complexity of the recall, it can really be a month or two before notices start going out to owners. GM doesn't want to send the notices until dealerships have been notified and have a reasonable number of "recall kits" on hand and ready to use.This really sucks.My wife was just at the dealership today to get her right side rear brake drum and shoes replaced at only 5300 miles and they didn't say a word about this.It would have been nice to have it all done at the same time as to not have to make another trip.
Call ahead to make sure your dealership is aware of and ready to do this recall.She has to take it back to have the windshield seal leak repaired to stop the howling noise above 60 miles per hour anyway so hopefully we can get everything taken care of at that time.I will let you know if there are any problems.
Was that the ugly as sin latch that was installed on the glovebox cover? My Pontiac Transport got that one.
I don't know if you saw my earlier post about who should wait and who should call their dealerships immediately. You're in the latter group. Call them.That is what I meant. I think it may be too early to know for sure. I hope I am in the recall. It would put this 2 tear old breaking issue to bed.
At this time, no. Only the 1.4T automatics are included in the US. GM/Canada hasn't issued a recall yet but they will since their Cruze are the same cars.
Normally recall information doesn't get released to the media until the NHTSA site is updated. The shield recall impacted all the Lordstown built Cruzen so it was real easy to identify the affected vehicles. I'm starting to think this recall was publicly announced by GM when they first notified the NHTSA of the recall. Manufacturers have 60 days from initial notification to the NHTSA to get them the "final" recall information, which includes the VIN ranges of affected vehicles, and to start sending out notices to registered owners. Early announcement causes confusion among both owners and dealerships because there is no way to completely verify if your vehicle is in the recall.Normally I would never agree with most of what you say, but I agree this seems kinda strange. With the cruze lower engine shield oil fire recall that information was available day one. That's why I said earlier everyone should check back later if they think their car is not effected.
Either way if you are effected GM will send you a letter and if you go to the dealer sometime a few months from now they should inform you of any open recalls.
Yes. It's cut before installation and looks a lot better than many of the dealership hack jobs. The shields themselves haven't changed since the Verano has the same shield.On a little of an off note, remembering the shield recall........Does the 2014 Cruze still have the cut up shield? Just curious.
