General Motors has directed dealers in North America to stop delivery of 2013 and 2014 model-year Chevrolet Cruze sedans because they may have a defective driver’s-side air bag inflator, Automotive News reported

The stop-delivery order may signal future expansion of the Takata air bag inflator recalls. Earlier this week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a series of recalls – involving seven different automakers -- to address potentially defective air bag inflators manufactured by Takata Corp. The recalls target millions of vehicles in high-humidity regions.

During air bag deployment, these air bag inflators might rupture and release metal fragment debris into the air. If this occurs, vehicle occupants are at risk for serious injury, NHTSA said.

GM joins Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Ford, Chrysler and BMW in addressing the troublesome air bag inflators. GM is still investigating how many of its vehicles may be equipped with the suspect air bag inflators.

    I own a Chevy Cruze and I have been waiting for 3 months. It was a recall about the axle shaft. Now I hope now that the airbags are going to work properly .

    I own the new 2014 Chevy Cruze and had my vehicle in for the right front Axle shaft for over 40 days. I really hope these issues are resolved soon.
