] Holden New Zealand says there have been no accidents or injuries reported as a result of fuel leaks in its Cruze sedan.

Holden has recalled 485 of its 2010 Cruze sedans sold in New Zealand because of concerns about a potential fuel leak, saying it is erring on the side of caution.

Holden New Zealand managing director Simon Carr says in some of the petrol engine models, the fuel feed hose may not have been manufactured correctly.

Mr Carr says there have been three reported cases of fuel leaks but no accidents or injuries.

People who bought the Cruze sedan are being contacted to have their car inspected.
