DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – If you drive the new Chevy Cruze, you might be cruising back to the dealership — General Motors is recalling the vehicle. The recall involves 150,000 2011 Cruze sedans.

GM wants to check new models to make sure the “intermediate steering shaft covers” were properly installed.

About 120,000 of the recalled vehicles with automatic transmissions will also be checked for proper installation of the transmission shift linkage.

The cars were built in Lordstown, Ohio, and sold in the U.S. and Canada.

According to GM, no crashes or injuries have been attributed to either issue and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received no consumer complaints.

The Cruze has been a hot seller for GM. In April, it sold over 25,000, up 84 percent from sales of its predecessor, the Chevrolet Cobalt, in April 2010.
