Chevrolet halts sales of Turbocharged Cruze in US

Snapshot: General Motors has issued a stop-sale order on some of its 2013 and 2014 Turbocharged Chevrolet Cruze models

General Motors is telling Chevrolet dealers to stop selling some 2013 and 2014 model year Chevrolet Cruze sedans, though the automaker isn't saying why. According to the report, the order affects models with the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and the notice was emailed to Chevy dealers last night. It seems that Chevy knows quite certainly what cars are affected as it is sending a list of VIN numbers with the stop-sale request.

The 1.4-liter turbo engined Cruze in question, represent about 60 percent of the model's sales, and approximately one-third of dealers' inventory at this point in time. Chevrolet has sold 2,48,224 Cruze models in the U.S. market in 2013, with the sedan being its top-selling product from the automaker. The Cruze is available with a 1.8-liter naturally aspirated engine and a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel as well, but stop-sale orders do not affect those models.

Although GM is claiming that the stop-sale order is not related to the recall involving Cruze's predecessors, the Chevrolet Cobalt and the Pontiac G5. Stay tuned to AutoPortal for further details!
