DETROIT (CBSMiami/AP) —  General Motors is getting ready to issue another recall. This time for about 33,000 Chevrolet Cruze compact cars.

The cars have air bags which may not inflate properly during a crash.

Spokesman Jim Cain says the cars were built with an incorrect part made by Japanese supplier Takata Corp. But he says the problem is different from another issue with Takata air bags that is affecting much of the auto industry.

The recall could come as early as Friday. It affects some 2013 and 2014 Cruzes.

GM on Wednesday told dealers to stop selling Cruzes until it figured out the problem. But Cain says the stop-sale order was lifted for most Cruzes later that day. He didn’t know if it costGM any sales.

The Cruze is built in Lordstown, Ohio, and is GM’s top-selling car.
