The Detroit News reports that General Motors will resume full production of the Chevrolet Cruze today, after a supplier issue caused a production snarl at its Lordstown, Ohio facility earlier this week. On Tuesday, the Lordstown facility's third shift was put on hold, and both the first and second shifts were shortened. Full production will resume when third shift workers arrive tonight, and GM states that employees scheduled to work the first and second shifts on Friday should report at their regularly scheduled times.

It is still unclear exactly what sort of supplier issue caused the Cruze plant to go partially offline this week. Either way, we're sure that the plant's 4,500 employees will be happy to be back at full capacity.

UPDATE: New reports claim that the Lordstown plant will not, in fact, resume production tomorrow, but will remain idled until further notice.

      The tanks of New Car Smell ran dry for a bit, so they had to slow production to a crawl.

      Since it looks like I may be the first post, lets get all the talking points out of the way . 1) It was Obama's fault 2) It was the Unions fault 3) GM should have failed and they still suck 4) My tax dollars are lost 5) It was Obama's fault. 6) All my GM cars have sucked and the Cruze will too 7) My Honda was made in the US/Ohio 8) My Toyota was made in the US/Ohio 9) The Cruze is Korean 10) Obama sucks Did I miss anything? I thought I would get all of this out of the way first.

          The Cruze in Europe is available with a nice 2.0 diesel 163 hp with 6 speed manual transmission. But it would be nice to have your 1.4 turbo petrol engine...

        Uugh yeah like you would've really noticed in your paycheck whether or not "Your Tax Dollars" are lost or not....give me a f****n break. Most people don't know where the government spends or sends money. How bout the billions they were giving Pakistan while Osama was right in their back yard. Even though GM was severely mismanaged, I'd rather give money to them and save those good paying American jobs.

      It's not an engine issue. They told the employees to report to work for 1st and 2nd shift yesterday,
