I bought a 2013 cruze 3 weeks ago and have not been able to take delivery of it yet because of this recall. I've called everyone I know to call and can not get an answer about when the part will be available. I am getting call asking about how I like the car but I'm not sure what to tell them. Ray

Do you drive a 2013 CHEVROLET CRUZE?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
