General Motors Co. sent an urgent order last month to Chevrolet dealers telling them to stop selling some 2013 and 2014 Cruze cars. This was most unusual and came as the company was dealing with a massive recall of vehicles with defective ignition switches linked to deaths. The stop sale order affects all 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze compact calls with 1.4-liter gasoline turbo engines, amounting to about one-third of the current inventory of the Cruze currently on dealership lots.
The affected cars cannot be sold or delivered to a customer until the order is lifted. The Chevrolet Cruze’s 1.8- and 2-liter engine models are not affected by the order. The stop order – coming in the midst of the crisis GM faces over the massive recalls of several of its older model cars – is not a good sign.
