2011 Chevrolet Cruze sedan in charcoal

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.
