Default Re: Chevy Cruze - complete recall in US & Canada

Not sure if it impacts the Indian Cruze, but if it does, then it will impact their sales a big time

Default Re: Chevy Cruze - complete recall in US & Canada

The article states, "Only Cruzes built in Lordstown, Ohio, and sold in the United States and Canada and several hundred exported to Israel are affected."

And since, US / Canada are predominantly Petrol market, I would assume Indian Cruze owner have nothing to worry about.

BMW recalls X5, X6 over leaking power steering fluid!


Quote:
Due to a potential manufacturing glitch, 2,642 examples of the 2012 and 2013 BMW X5 and 2013 BMW X6 are being recalled. The steering gear surface on said models might have been improperly machined, which could cause power steering fluid to leak onto the hot exhaust and cause a fire in the engine compartment

Quote:
A potentially defective turbine wheel in the turbochargers of 2011 and 2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo and Turbo S models and the 2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo has led to a recall. There are 270 units affected among the three models, with a casting defect being cited as the cause of the trouble.

Default Santa Fe and Sonata Recall

In the US there has been a recall of Santa Fe and Sonata cars from 2007-2009 models as well as 2012-2013 ones. Concerns on deploying of safety bags in some and not deploying in others has prompted this recall. Does this affect India as well? Anyone owning either of these cars need to check with Hyundai accordingly - however I am guessing we already know the answer
