According to USA Today and several other news outlets, the General has ordered dealerships in Canada and 'Murica! to stop selling 2013-2014 Cruze's, new or used.

From the USA today:

General Motors has told dealers in the U.S. and Canada to stop selling 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruzes because of a potential defect in air bags made by beleaguered air bag supplier Takata.

"Certain vehicles may be equipped with a suspect driver's air bag inflator module that may have been assembled with an incorrect part," GM spokesmen Jim Cain said in a statement. "We are working diligently with the supplier of the defective part to identify specific vehicles affected and expect to resume deliveries by the end of this week once those vehicles are identified."

GM, which notified dealers of the stop-sale order on Tuesday, said it has identified about 33,000 Cruzes, mostly in the U.S. and Canada, that may have been built with parts from the bad batch and said it believes it is close to identifying all the problem cars. Once it does, GM can lift the order because dealers will be able to isolate the cars with the suspect module and sell the cars that are OK....

That air bag issue is different from a problem with the chemical propellant degradation of Takata air bags on older model cars that caused more recalls this week and since 2008 has caused seven automakers to recall nearly 10 million cars worldwide."

I have two comments about this:

1) I hear there is an opening in airbag suppliers

2) .....my Cavalier will probably be my last GM vehicle unless I get a G body or a 1974 Cadillac.
