GM recalls Chevy Cruze, Captiva models

Automotive News Europe -- March 21, 2010 06:16 CET

SEOUL (Reuters) -- General Motors Co.'s South Korean unit plans to recall about 60,000 units of the Chevrolet Cruze and Captiva in South Korea, the government and the company said on Sunday.

Without being more specific, GM Daewoo Auto & Technology officials said units of the Captiva and Cruze with the same defects would be recalled in overseas markets. The cars are sold in Europe and Russia.

"Every country has different rules and standards and each GM operation will decide the size and timing of recalls of those cars depending on their own situations," a GM Daewoo official told Reuters by telephone, asking not to be identified.

GM Daewoo officials declined to comment on costs of the recall.

In South Korea, GM Daewoo will recall 45,957 Captiva SUVs, which are sold as the Winstorm, due to defects with the steering system, the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said in a statement. The recall affects Captivas made between April 1, 2006 and Dec. 31, 2007.

The company also plans to recall 12,604 units of the Cruze compact sedan, which is sold as the Lacetti Premiere in Korea, due to defects with fuel supply pipes, the ministry said. The recall applies to cars produced between Sept. 25, 2009 and March 2, 2010.
