General Motors India is recalling around 22,000 units of its premium sedan Chevrolet Cruze, manufactured from 2009 to 2011, to fix faulty ignition system.

The company is undertaking the recall to fix loss of ignition or engine stall at low vehicle speeds, General Motors India said in a statement.

The recall affects Chevrolet Cruze vehicles manufactured between model years 2009-11, it added.

The inspection and recommended repairs or replacement are estimated to take not more than one hour and affected Chevrolet Cruze customers will be asked to take their vehicles to their nearest Chevrolet service dealership for inspection with a prior appointment, the company said.

“This is a voluntary recall and, as far as we are aware, does not affect the safety of the vehicle but we want to make sure that our customers experience the right performance from their vehicles,” GM India vice-president (aftersales) Markus Sternberg said.

The affected vehicles will be repaired free of charge at all company service centers across the country.

In 2013, General Motors India had recalled 1.14 lakh units of its multi-purpose vehicle Chevrolet Tavera to address emissions and specification issues.
