General Motors Co.
has sent out a stop-sale letter to U.S. dealers regarding new Chevrolet Cruze sedans with 1.4-turbo engines.
GM spokesman Alan Adler confirmed Friday the letter has gone out but had no details about the vehicle issue or what types of Cruzes are involved. Spokesman Greg Martin also said he had no details on the Cruze situation. Dealers say stop-sale orders are routine and almost always made to fix a safety problem, and they received the order in an email Thursday, but no reason was given.
"This is something we don't see every day," one dealer, who asked not to be identified, told the Wall Street Journal since he shared the internal document. "To not be given a reason must mean GM has spotted an issue and is still trying to get its arms around it."Read Article
