    Missing bolts are the cause of a GM recall of 194,105 vehicles in the US. The vehicles being recalled were built between 2018 and 2020. The missing fastener could lead to a transmission oil leak and, ultimately, to a loss of power. Documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety...

    The SUVs are claiming another victim, this time it's the Malibu, which reportedly will be discontinued after the 2023 model year. GM Authority reports that the Malibu "will likely be dropped" from the model line-up. Although GM had planned to update the car in 2023 and continue production until...

    No, General Motors hasn't snatched back its mothballed Lordstown, Ohio assembly plant and restarted production of the Chevrolet Cruze. Clearly, those angry letters from yours truly fell on deaf ears. Instead, the plant's new owner, Lordstown Motors, will reveal the model it hopes to build at...

    The last Cruze from Lordstown has found a new home. Its fourth in a very short time, and maybe its last for a little while. And, surprisingly, it's with the owner of a Chrysler dealership, not a Chevy showroom. Though it's only a lowly LS trim sedan, in sedate white paint, the last Lordstown...

    President Trump tweeted yesterday that GM would be selling its Lordstown assembly plant to EV manufacturer Workhorse.

    The president of a UAW local that represented General Motors workers at the now shuttered Lordstown Assembly plant isn't happy knowing there was a chance that the mothballed facility could still be cranking out Chevrolet Cruzes.

    It won't be a joyous Christmas for many General Motors workers. As it embarks on a wide-ranging cost-cutting plan, GM plans to cull six models and mothball five plants in the U.S. and Canada, eliminating up to 15,000 jobs in the process. On Friday, the automaker said the process of notifying...

    Nearly 300 workers, local business leaders, and a handful of state and national government officials got together this week to try to save GM's Lordstown Assembly plant. The assembly was part of the "Drive it Home" campaign that's trying to save the plant from a slow slide into disuse. GM...

    General Motors, inventor of the modern automatic transmission, is only just recently warming up to the idea of shiftless driving. There's a continuously variable transmission on offer with the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu, which our own Chris Tonn spent some time flogging last week (in mildly sporty RS...

    It's gotten to the point where those seen buying a traditional sedan or hatchback are viewed as being unlikely candidates for procreation. After all, you can't raise a kid in the absence of a vehicle belonging to a segment where "rows" matters more than horsepower or fuel economy. I blame Lee...

    Workers at GM's Lordstown Assembly plant are taking early retirements and contract buyouts, hoping to avoid layoffs as the second shift at that plant is being eliminated. The Lordstown, OH, plant builds the Chevrolet Cruze sedan. Sales of that car have been falling, from a high of 273,060 in...

    Not all of Chevrolet's cars are on the chopping block, as the company announces a refresh for three of its road-hugging models. The Malibu, Cruze, and Spark are all getting a mild update for 2019 that sees their front ends change ever so slightly and their trim levels rejigged. "The restyled...

    Christmas get-togethers across North America were ruined when we reported, last December, that the manual transmission would soon leave the Chevrolet Cruze stable. That sad bit of information came by way of VIN decoder documents submitted to the NHTSA by General Motors for the 2019 model year...

    While sedan sales continue to slump, GM says it remains committed to the Chevrolet Cruze. The Cleveland Auto Show is this week, and with the Cruze produced in nearby Lordstown, plant officials were out to talk about the car's future. Sales of the compact Cruze have fallen significantly in the...

    After a year of good news (McDonald's all-day breakfast came to Canada), it seems only fitting that 2017 will end in tears. The Chevrolet Cruze, one of a shrinking number of models in which one can easily find a manual transmission, appears set to lose that option after the 2018 model year. As...

    The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel sedan is expected to deliver 52 miles per gallon on the highway. According to GM, this makes it the most efficient non-hybrid, non-electric vehicle in America. "We had very aggressive goals for our fuel economy because it's so important for this product," said...

    Just in case you're not tired of all the diesel news coming out this year, here's one more oily tidbit: the upcoming diesel version of the Chevrolet Cruze is rumored to net a 50 mpg rating by the EPA. The report comes from Automotive News, which cornered GM product development chief Mark Reuss...
