In response to General Motors’ recall of 413,418 Chevrolet Cruze models in North America last week, Holden has announced it will initiate a precautionary vehicle safety recall on certain locally-built MY12 and MY13 Cruze models fitted with a 1.4 litre petrol engine.

A condition has been identified where, in some instances, the lower air deflector, also known as the belly pan, can catch oil that might drip from the engine if an oil change is not done properly. If oil makes contact with hot engine parts such as the exhaust manifold or catalytic converter, a fire could occur.

There are no reported cases of engine compartment fires in Australia or New Zealand related to this condition.

Holden Director of Warranty, Customer Satisfaction and Quality, Craig Porritt, said safety was Holden’s number one priority and it was initiating the recall as a precautionary measure.

The recall affects approximately 9,547 Cruze vehicles in Australia.

Holden is contacting potentially impacted customers directly (where possible) to arrange a free-of-charge rework which involves the modification of the lower air deflector under the engine.
