GM lifts stop-sale order on newly launched Chevy Cruze

General Motors Co. on Friday lifted a stop-sales order that it had imposed on 831 new Chevrolet Cruze compacts that had been delivered to dealers or customers.

GM issued the order Tuesday over a potential quality issue with the cars, GM spokesman Alan Adler said.

But all the vehicles nationally were released for sale and delivery today after GM examined batches of Cruze models that had been held at the factory for further inspection. After the inspection, GM determined the Cruze models were fine, Adler said.

The Cruze is assembled at a factory in Lordstown, Ohio.

Adler declined to discuss what issue had caused the stop order.

In a GM letter received Tuesday, Chevrolet dealers were ordered not to sell, trade or demonstrate the batch of 831 cars. The memo had an attachment that listed the VIN numbers of affected cars.

Adler said the stop-order reflects the extreme care that GM is taking to ensure that the Cruze has a successful launch. GM started shipping the Cruze to dealers in September.

Adler said stop-orders are rarely used.

He said dealers affected by the order would be reimbursed for any floorplanning expenses incurred over the four days sales were suspended. He declined to say what the per-day and per-car reimbursement would be.
