General Motors has performed three tests at its Milford Proving Grounds yesterday evening to clear up an issue related to the quality of struts used in the Chevrolet Cruze. The issue, which is reported to be caused by a supplier, has resulted in the manufacturing suspension of the compact sedan at GM’s Lordstown Assembly in Ohio.
GM Authority has learned that the results of the three tests were unsatisfactory, resulting in a prolonging of the manufacturing suspension of the Cruze. We’ve been told by sources familiar with the situation that the issue is explained as the presence of excessive road noise in low-speed conditions.
As of this writing, there have been no updates on what GM plans to do next in solving the problem and resuming production.
Stay glued to GM Authority for the latest updates on this situation.
