General Motors recalls 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles over defect in brake shaft

General Motors

General Motors is recalling certain model year 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles equipped with a 1.4L turbo engine, and manufactured between November 28, 2012, and March 7, 2014. On the affected vehicles, the right front half shaft may fracture and separate.

If the half shaft fractures and separates while driving, the vehicle would lose power and coast to a stop. If a vehicle with a fractured half shaft is parked without the parking brake applied, the vehicle could move unexpectedly. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

GM estimates this will affect 174,000 vehicles.  It will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the right half shaft, as needed, free of charge. Parts for the remedy are not currently available. GM will send an interim letter to owners the week of April 28, 2014. A second owner letter will be mailed when parts are available.

I have several issues with my 2013 Cruise. Month one were the breaking issues. My car did not stop when I applied the brakes three times! After five weeks of checking it over and being told there was nothing wrong they fixed an ABS computer part that failed!
Then the heater thermostat got stuck in the open position causing the fan to never turn off!
Then Last week while driving my vehicle, I made a right hand turn and my steering wheel locked causing me to have to stop my car, put it in park, turn it off and then I was able to disengage it to turn again!
I feel scared to drive my five yr old child now!
