General Motors dealers stop Cruze sales over defective Takata airbags

WASHINGTON--General Motors (GM) has told dealers to stop selling about 33,000 new and used Chevrolet Cruze sedans from model years 2013 and 2014 due to a potential problem with airbags from Japan's Takata.

Potentially faulty airbags manufactured by Takata — that could rupture and propel debris inside a car — have triggered the recall of millions of vehicles around the world, many of them Toyotas.

GM spokesman Jim Cain said the automaker had notified U.S. and Canadian automakers to halt Cruze deliveries “until further notice,” though sales of the unaffected vehicles were set to resume by the end of the week.

“Certain vehicles may be equipped with a suspect driver's air bag inflator module that may have been assembled with an incorrect part,” he added.
