General Motors is recalling 2,100 Chevy Cruze sedans from model year 2011, after a steering wheel on one vehicle came loose because it was improperly installed. If this occurred while the vehicle was being driven, it could lead to a crash. No injuries or accidents have been tied to the steering issue.

GM reported that it has inspected some 2,000 Cruzes at manufacturing plants but has not found similar problems. In March, GM issued a notice to dealers asking them to inspect unsold Cruze vehicles, according to the Detroit News.

Chevrolet Cruze owners will be be sent recall notices by mail on April 12. Affected vehicles can be brought to dealerships where they will inspect the steering wheel fastener bolt and repair, if necessary.
