The Australian-made Holden Cruze will not be recalled following a scare in the US concerning Chevrolet Cruze models with faulty airbag modules.

The General Motors brand issued a stop-sale to its North American dealers in June, with 33,000 Cruze models held on showroom floors. The fault – as reported by CarAdvice – was a “suspect driver’s airbag inflator module that may have been assembled with an incorrect part”. The airbags were supplied by embattled manufacturer Takata, which is embroiled in a global recall fiasco involving more than 10 million vehicles.

Holden product communications manager Mark Flintoft told CarAdvice there is no reason for Australian owners of the Cruze to be concerned.

“Following a thorough and careful investigation we can confirm that the Holden Cruze is not affected by the same airbag issue that resulted in the US Chevrolet Cruze stop sale,” the statement read.

A number of brands – including Mazda, Honda and Nissan – last week announced updated recalls for a number of models affected by faulty airbags. Read more about that recall here.
