(Newser) – A black eye for GM today: It's recalling more than 475,000 Chevy Cruzes because the engines might start on fire, reports the Detroit Free Press. The recall covers all those in the 2011-12 model years and comes after reports of 30 fires. Most occurred after fluid got trapped after oil changes, though no injuries were reported. The Cruze was GM's best-seller last year, notes the Detroit News, and it's a big part of the automaker's strategy to make inroads in the small-car market. The free fix should take about 30 minutes at the dealer.
