General Motors is recalling certain model year 2011 and 2012 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles manufactured from October 2, 2009, through May 14, 2012. Attachment welds for the fuel tank strap secondary brackets may have been omitted.

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12v289000

Component: Fuel system, gasoline storage tank assembly mounting

Potential number of units affected: 53,239

Consequence: The fuel tank could come loose in a crash, possibly allowing fuel to leak from the tank. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.

Remedy: GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicle for missing welds. If the vehicle is missing welds, dealers will secure the bracket attachments with fasteners. Repairs will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, July 11, 2012. Owners may contact the Chevrolet owner center at 1-866-694-6546.

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
