GM Recalls Cruzes That May Leak Gas in Crash

By Staff Writer June 05, 2018

General Motors LLC is recalling 111,966 2016-18 Chevrolet Cruze LS vehicles, equipped with a gasoline engine and a tire inflator kit instead of a spare tire.


The vehicles may leak gasoline following a rear-impact crash and a rollover.


As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 301, "Fuel System Integrity."
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a lock-ring on the fuel tank that will shield the fuel tank vapor pressure sensor from damage in a rear-impact crash, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.


GM's number for this recall is 18159.
