Holden has recalled its JG Cruze small car due to a potential risk of engine stalling.
The carmaker has identified a fault with the wiring loom for the Engine Control Module (ECM), which may be subject to corrosion over an extended period of time.
If the wires become corroded and cease to operate, the engine may stall unexpectedly while stationary or driving at low speed. This could prove a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
There have been no reports of any incidents resulting from this problem in Australia to date.
A total of 10,214 vehicles are affected in Australia from the 2010 model-year, and each is fitted with the 2.0 litre four-cylinder diesel engine.
Production dates for the affected vehicles range from February 2009 to February 2011.
The recall process will involve “removal of the fretting corrosion potential within the specific connector interface”, according to Holden.
Last year, Holden recalled its JG and JH Cruze sedan and hatch range, fitted with manual transmissions and self-adjusting park brake systems due to a potential problem with the park brake.
Holden will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
