GM halts sales of certain Chevrolet Cruze models

General Motors sent an email to its dealers on Thursday asking them to suspend the sale of certain 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze models. The manufacturer did not specify the reasons behind the decision.

The sales-stop order concerns versions powered by the four-cylinder, 1.4L turbocharged engine. This news comes at a time when General Motors is defending itself from allegations that it took too long to proceed with a recall concerning an ignition problem linked to more than 30 accidents and 12 deaths.

GM’s new CEO, Mary Barra, will be testifying next week before a sub-committee of the House of Representatives as part of an investigation to determine whether the American automaker was negligent in how it chose to address the problem.

General Motors did not indicate specifically in which countries the stop-sales order applied. Such a procedure is not a first in the automotive industry, and manufacturers generally require their dealers to suspend sales of a particular model so they can make repairs before putting the car back on sale.
