Recall roundup: Holden Cruze image

Holden has recently announced a recall for the Cruze vehicles because of a problem which might impact the braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash and injury.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, a total of 11,480 units of the Holden Cruze will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the affected braking performance fixed. The ACCC says that when the engine does not have enough vacuum, and it’s cold, the braking performance of the cars might be reduced and this will increase the risk of a crash.

The affected Holden Cruze cars have been equipped only with the 1.4 liter turbocharged engine, producing a total output of 103 kW and 200 Nm of torque. The models have been produced between February 22, 2011, and June 8, 2012. The recall is expected to begin over the following weeks and the necessary repairs will be made with no cost from the owners. The recall is part of a global campaign, which affects the Chevrolet Cruze vehicles in Canada and in the United States.
