General Motors Co. has told its dealers to stop selling 21,000 Chevrolet Cruze cars equipped with 1.4-liter turbo engines on their lots.
The automaker did not provide any information why it issued the order. Automakers typically halt sales of a car if they learn of some safety defect. Sometimes it can be a minor issue that puts the model out of compliance with federal safety regulations.
The stop-sale order is for 2013 and 2014 model year Cruze sedans with the gasoline turbocharged engine, not the diesel version, said Alan Adler, a GM spokesman. It amounts to about a third of the Cruze inventory at Chevrolet dealers.
“No other details to share,” he said.
The Cruze, assembled in Lordstown, is GM’s best-selling compact car in the U.S. It sold nearly 250,000 last year, making it one of the top-selling vehicles in America.
