Alan Alder, spokesperson for the General Motors, said the world class automakers have been very supportive in the investigation by the NHTSA and will cooperate throughout the process. He said that the investigation on the fire safety in the Chevrolet Cruze will cover 370,000 models available in the entire U.S. And he makes it clear that the General Motors has not recalled on the issue.
In a report filed with the government, there's no reported cases of death or injuries due to the technical fault in the Chevroelt Cruze cars. If NHTSA finds out the core technical problem with the Chevrolet Cruze models then it has the power to order the recall of the 370,000 models driven across the U.S.
