A warning to chevy Cruze owner's myself owning one, I noticed the car losing acceleration and at certain times, misfiring from a cylinder, to sum it up, I ran the obd code and got code # p0304 which is engine misfiring. I ended up waiting until the car was cold and removed the t30 screws to access the spark plugs, the coil pack's rubber boots were melted onto my spark plugs, I have take super care of the car and I never would of thought of the coil pack having a serious issue, this is definitely something owner's should be aware of. I hope this can get looked into and a recall would be a helpful option, those coil packs should be made differently or make something more durable than plastic boots. This problem started a few weeks back, it would run fine for almost a half hour and then it started chugging and at traffic lights, it had no power to move, process of elimination was a code for the barometric pressure sensor, so I started there first only because it was cheaper, once I got a confirmed code of cylinder's misfiring that's when we took an in depth look at the spark plugs, I had to replace the coil pack and I did 4 new spark plugs.

I parked my car in a parking lot to go into a store and when I came back immediately after I started it under the hood there was a lot of smoke even after I turned it off there was still smoke everywhere.
Engine coolant thermostat sensors. I have replaced it twice in 2 months. I have found nothing but problems of the same sort all over the internet with many model years of the car I have. Things just don't go bad that soon unless there is a significant electrical or engine issue. I see no recalls for my year on anything and I find it hard 1 year model has no recall issues.
My car will not go into reverse and hesitated to give gas and now my car won't go into any gear , I currently see online other ppl with this car that have the same problem.

Was traveling approximately 62 mph I pressed the gas pedal to the floor and the power stopped from the engine and the transmission down shifted causing a loud thud noise in the dash board area. The vehicle never increased speed it dropped down to approximately 50 mph until I exited, upon exiting I came to a complete stop and restarted the vehicle. When accelerating the dash board now vibrated at approximately 5000 rpm. I took the vehicle to the dealer paddock Chevrolet. Driving in the vehicle with the service representative roland we were able to recreate the secondary vibration. The dealer said there are no codes for the loss of power. I left the vehicle at paddock and it is there now. Gm has been non-responsive case # 8-3183509862. I have been in high-speed accidents before and am deeply afraid to drive this vehicle with out knowing why there was power loss and when it will happen again.
On August 19, 2017, I was on the road, drove passed south center mall when I felt that there was something wrong with my engine because it wasn't driving fast as usual. I pulled over to the side of the road, at inspirus credit union in tukwila to check the engine if it was okay when I smelled a faint scent of smoke. I drove back home to park it for fear of the engine exploding. Our family mechanic checked the engine and said that the fan is too loud as if something is causing it to be overworked. The engine fan has always been loud after my oil change on July 21, 2017. The engine light has not been turned off since the oil change and I know that there is something wrong with the vehicle. Also, I entered the VIN number online and it said that the recall on my car is incomplete. The dealer did not inform me about the recall nor mentioned anything about it when I bought it. They did not give me a written letter of the recall or even specified the recall being incomplete.

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.
