According to a recent report in Automotive News, General Motors has issued a stop-sale order on some of its 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze models. No reason has been given, although this is hardly good news for GM - the Cruze was the automaker's best-seller in 2013.

The order affects models with the 1.4-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder – according to the report and confirmed by GM – and was emailed to Chevy dealers last night. It seems that Chevy knows quite certainly what cars are affected with the unnamed malady, sending dealers a list of VIN numbers with the stop-sale request.

We reached out to Alan Adler at General Motors to confirm the stop-sale order, and although he couldn't comment on any issues with the car, he did confirm that the order was sent out last night. It seems, though, that these sort of internal stop-sales, while not a common, daily occurrence, are also not unusual.

Regardless of the why behind the stop-sale, the timing really couldn't be worse. GM already has quite a full plate these days, handling the ignition switch recall affecting the Chevy Cobalt, the Cruze's predecessor in the compact segment, as well as several other models. That 1.6-million-unit issue is being blamed for at least 12 deaths and has prompted a federal investigation and a massive outreach campaign by the automaker, which has gone so far as to put its new CEO on camera for a video FAQ.

Of course, if anything official is released relating to the Cruze's stop-sale, we'll be sure to let you know.
