Consumer mystery: GM halts Chevy Cruze sales

It's a consumer mystery:  General Motors is temporarily halting sales of its popular Chevy Cruze, and won't say why.

The compact Cruze is GM's best selling car in the united states.

But a GM spokesman tells CNN that the company has ordered a halt to sales of its 4 cylinder turbo versions, the most popular Cruze model.
GM will not say what the issue is.

However, it is reeling from its recent ignition switch recall on more than a million Chevy Cobalt, Pontiac, and Saturn cars, and CNN says the company may want to be pro active with a possible problem.

The company is promising to do a better job with safety issues, and not let a potential problem fester for years before issuing a recall.

It says often a sales halt means the manufacturer has found some issue, and wants to correct it at dealer lots before the public buys the cars.  

As always, don't waste your money.
