The South Korean Division of the American based automotive giant General Motors has just announced a recall which will affect 100.000 units of the Chevrolet Captiva, Lacetti, Cruze, Epica and Winstorm worldwide.

According to GM, the 100.000 cars have been recalled because of a faulty fuel hose in its certain model year diesel which can cause leaks and the vehicle can come to a sudden halt.

The South Korean GM Division says that 100.000 units will be affected worldwide, all of them being powered with diesel engines, out of which 23.795 are the 2.0 Winstorm and 3.141 Winstorm Max 2.0, made between 2008, February 11 and 2011, January 2.

GM says that other affected models are the Lacetti Premier 2.0 Diesel, currently sold as the Chevrolet Cruze, 5.479 units produced between 2008, November 4 and 2012, July 20, along with 104 units of the Lacetti 2.0 Diesel made between March 13, 2008 and June 18, 2011.

The Chevrolet Epica has also been affected by the recall and 99 units of the model equipped with the 2.0 liter Diesel engine, made between 2008, February 1 and 2011, June 20, will have to make a trip back to the dealership. The Epica has been sold before under the Tosca name.

General Motors says that 62.945 units of the Chevrolet Cruze, Epica and Captiva will be affected by the recall globally and their owners will be notified by the automaker as soon as possible.

The automotive giant General Motors didn’t announce an exact date for when owners of the above mentioned vehicles will have to make a trip back to the dealership.


  1. How come Singapore GM or Alpine Motors is recalling any cars AT ALL????

    Another is spongy brakes is NOT an issue in Singapore??

    It appears that Alpine motors in Singapore is just selling and making money and avoiding the problems facing to customers!!!

    I have driving the car with spongy brakes and pedal sinking down as you put pressure on the brake pedal.
    Alpine claims is new design of brakes by GM and drivers MUST not exceed 50 km/hr to have effective brakes. Just wonder if GM has changed their policies as far as customers service pushing responsibilities to car owners instead looking into the problem?
