May 31, 2018—General Motors (GM) is recalling nearly 112,000 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles over concerns that vehicles can catch fire due to fuel leaks after crashes, reported The Columbus Dispatch.

The recall applies to 2016 through 2018 Chevrolet Cruze LS vehicles that are equipped with a gasoline engine and a tire inflator kit, according to the report. 

A notice issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the vehicles may leak gasoline following a rear-impact crash and a rollover.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a lock-ring on the fuel tank that will shield the fuel tank vapor pressure sensor from damage in a rear-impact crash, reported The Columbus Dispatch.
