Bought this car used with 51k miles a month ago. Drove great the first week, after that loses powerupon acceleration and is slow to get up to speed. While driving just now, the car was losing power so I decided to hit the gas harder and instead of going faster the the stability track light came on. I am starting to wonder if I made a bad decision purchasing this car. It had trouble going up hill on the highway last wk. This car is too compact to have speed issues.

Failure Date: 12/18/2016

I purchased a pre-owned 2011 chevy Cruze in August of 2016. In December, I was driving on the highway and my car started to jerk as I pushed on the gas and it wouldn't accelerate. I pull over and parked the car to see what was wrong. I restarted the car and put it in drive, but it wouldn't go forward; however, when I put the car in reverse, it moved. My mom called the dealership we bought it from to claim the lemon law, but their response was that they couldn't do anything about it because the car was older than 30 days. She was also told that the lemon law does not apply to used vehicles, so my dad had the car towed to Chevrolet. They said that the transmission was the issue. My issue is that I had this car for 4 months. Replacing or getting the transmission fixed costs more than the car is worth. I do not have the funds for this being that I am a college student, and I need this transportation. I can't trade this car in since it's in this condition. My other issue is that there is no recall for this malfunction in this particular vehicle. After doing some research on this issue, I realized that there a lot of people dealing with this same problem and others regarding the transmission. I believe there should be a recall on the transmission because this issue is extremely dangerous.

First, I receive a warning about engine temp so I put some coolant in and the problem doesn't come up again for a week. Between that time, the tire sensor malfunctions and the car is at only 40,000 miles so it's no longer under warranty. The second time I get the temp warning I'm on the way to work riding along a highway and the car loses momentum and led advises that car is lowering power to protect engine. Mind you, this is after I've already spent $400 on new tires and changed the oil. A minute after the led on, the car was trying to completely shut down at this point and I pulled over. When I get to a complete stop, steam just engulfs my hood. The car went from driving with no indication of trouble to a complete disaster in a matter of one and a half minutes. I had the car towed to my house and later on brought it to a Chevrolet dealer to get a diagnostic. Chevrolet advises that the engine is bad. My four year old car with just over 40,000 miles needs a $7,000 engine replacement. This is not a normal occurrence and I've never had a similar issue on a car that hasn't even hit half a 100k. These problems didn't happen with a 1999 model I had for much longer than this and the mileage was over 120,000 when the car started giving up. There are many similar complaints here with similar issues and these people invested in a vehicle that we expected to serve us for the price we paid. I bought american because I wanted to support industry in our country. Chevy lauds itself as a top-tier company ranked at highly with multiple auto magazines every year. My experience has been very low, though and this has caused me severe financial burden for a vehicle I paid in full price brand new. Engine replacements do not happen at 40,000 miles on a brand new car with a top-tier auto maker.

The car has a burning electrical smell. Sometimes we can smell the odor in the cabin, but mostly coming from the engine after we have finished driving the car and walk around the front of the car. The odor has been present since we purchased the car in November 2016.

Then my fan kicked on and it went away but the fan just stays running but the coolant temp is not even hot can even get hot out of the heater vents but still thinks I'm overheating then the car shut itself off!

I purchased this 2015 cruz with 18,000 miles on the vehicle from lee johnson Chevrolet in kirkland, wa. It has been back to the mechanic 3 separate times with a complaint that this vehicle excelerates sporadically and without notice. There is no fault codes that come up. The mechanics drive it but this does'nt happen to him, therefore they state that this is not a problem. I feel totally unsafe when this happens and I'm afraid to drive this car. ( I drive with one hand on the gearshift in case this happens so I can put it in neutral immediately. I want this complaint to go on record that I have filed this claim as well as worked with the mechanics on 3 different occasions and feel as if I have no recourse for what I consider a serious problem.

This vehicle safety complaint is in regards to my 2011 Chevrolet Cruze lt, which was serviced at ourisman Chevrolet of bowie, a general motors (gm) authorized dealer, for the repair of my vehicle. I incurred charges for unwarranted maintenance repairs on the following dates September 26-October 5, 2016 ($134. 95 and $139. 07 (cost for a new battery)), April 26, 2016 (warranty covered repairs), April 11, 2016 ($590. 92), and April 14, 2015 ($382. 14) that never addressed the safety complaints I made, all of which were handled by service advisor buddy reio. On these dates, I took my vehicle to be serviced for experiencing hazardous issues with its electrical systems and reduced engine acceleration while I was driving between 40-55 miles per hour. Without warning, my vehicle¿s speed would decelerate (both on the highway and residential roads) and my car doors would begin to lock and unlock uncontrollably with error messages ¿service stabilitrac,¿ ¿service parking assist,¿ and ¿service airbag¿ displaying on my dashboard. After about 30 seconds of this condition, my car would resume normal functioning. I incurred $1,247. 08 in unwarranted repairs for my vehicle, which was never properly diagnosed, leading to my vehicle shutting down while I was driving it on October 22, 2016. On October 22, 2016 at 3:20 p. M. , while driving on a busy thoroughfare, my car decelerated and error messages displaying ¿service stabilitrac,¿ ¿service parking assist,¿ and ¿service airbag¿ showed. After approximately 30 seconds, the car began to shut down and I managed to steer it out of the way of oncoming traffic. I immediately contacted Chevrolet¿s roadside service and informed the representatives that my engine would not start and I was stuck on the side of the road.
