General Motors Co. is recalling about 2,100 2011 Chevrolet Cruze small cars to inspect for an improperly fastened steering wheel after discovering one vehicle with the defect.

There have been no crashes or injuries related to the vehicle with the problem, GM said.

“We are confident this is the only vehicle with this condition,” said Jeff Boyer, GM executive director of safety, said in a statement.

The Cruze was launched overseas in late 2009 and in the United States last September.  It replaced the Cobalt in the U.S. and other models overseas.

GM has said Cruze was on track to exceed 50,000 U.S. sales in the first quarter.

More than 100,000 Cruzes have been built since the start of production in the United States, GM said.
