The car maker reports that in some vehicles, and over "an extended period of time", a wiring connector for the Engine Control Module may fret and become corroded.
In the event of corrosion, the vehicle could stall either while stationary or when driving at low speed.
Cruze vehicles built between February 26, 2009 and February 22, 2011 may be affected, including models with a VIN in the range of KL3JA69RJAK501774 to KL3JF69RJAK774710.
A total of 10,214 vehicles will be recalled, and no injuries or incidents have been reported.
Holden will contact affected owners to notify of the recall and to arrange replacement of the wiring components.
