A faulty PVC braket is to blame. 

According to a report on Car Toq, General Motors is carrying out a recall program for the Cruze executive sedan to replace its PVC bracket that holds the wiring in place in the engine bay. Cruze owners has already been asked to bring their cars for replacing the affected part, a job that will take about two hours time, and will be carried out at no charge to the customer.

The Cruze got a very minor refresh which focussed on subtle changes to the front.

The Cruze is available in India solely as a diesel model, powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 166 bhp and 380 Nm of torque. It is paired either to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic.

A mildly refreshed Cruze with subtle changes to the front was launched earlier this, though it hasn’t really helped push sales of the car. The car sells about 130 units per month on an average, which despite being a respectable figure in its shrinking segment, is still a third of what the Hyundai Elantra sells.

    What GM India has to do with next gen Cruze is place it just above Verna and undercut all D-segment sedans’ pricing. Only that can do them good.
