GM is recalling certain 2011 Chevrolet Cruze compact cars because a steering wheel fell off while a person was driving. Chevy says the wrong wheel was put in the car and then replaced later in the assembly process with the correct one. The new wheel wasn’t attached properly. The driver was able to get the car to the side of the road safely. General Motors says it believes this was an isolated incident. Chevrolet says it has changed its production process to make sure the machine used to attach the steering wheel can accommodate only the correct one.
