The car was moving down the road, and all of a sudden, the engine light came on, 'ac off due to high engine temperature'- fans kicked on and ran non stop. Coolant was added immediately only to find out that the head cracked- the coolant was running into the oil. This car was not very old and it for no reason should have cracked. I think it is in relation to recall campaign 12081.
With heater and fan on, nauseating odor is emitted from the vents. The odor smells like anti-freeze. This odor cannot be safe to be inhaling.

The car says in the instrument cluster "engine looses power" and to "service stabilitrac. " then I loose acceleration. I have to coast to the shoulder shut the car down and restart. It happens more often on the freeway which is super scary. This happens every time drive.
The "check engine" light came on one evening and with a message to service the stabiltrack. I did get the car home. Next morning, started the car, was stopped at an intersection near my home when the engine lost power in the middle of the intersection. Was able to get the car home by turning it off and restarting it, but in trying to drive the car to the repair shop, was not able to get any acceleration and had to have the car towed from my driveway. Diagnostics revealed the throttle body had to be replaced and the sensor cleared. Was told by my mechanic that there is a service bulletin out for this issue from gm. This is a car with 41,000 miles on it.

The right front half shaft may fracture and separate while driving, potentially causing the vehicle to lose power and coast to a stop.

I am writing asking for you to look into what I call endangering to motorist in our state, more so of a danger to me. I am forced to drive w/ something connected to my body, vehicle, or anything they can possibly connect to a tool utilized by our law enforcement agencies. The tool is used to do undercover work/investigations which I was told it's used by special investigations for the police department. As I am driving, I have to tell them while driving not to put that on my car, move that off my brakes (which sometimes my vehicle wouldn't stop I had to press down all the way to the floor for it to stop and my brakes aren't bad, they even have something setup to when I am breaking, slowing down and about to turn that it locks up my breaks and causes the care to do something like a jerk thing or instant stop, they have moved it to the back of my car which moves the opposite way my vehicle is being steered and it spins out only on one tire). They have created an illegal setup which has damaged my vehicle that's being repaired today. When driving they place it my brakes which sometimes don't stop, they have others driving at the same time as I am and it effects the driving of others, they move my vehicle which is steered the opposite direction I am controlling it, it can cause you to crash, it's huge distraction. The other motorist on the road as I am have tried helping some have admitted to driving w/ this connected to them purposely and are to intentionally cause an accident, they said it's a "game". With the help of some from the little rock police department, and fbi they are given the where about of certain individuals and they are to cause an accident. The setup alone can cause you to crash. I have motorist who spoke up and tried helping me as I am on the highway and those who are controlling it, which are individuals who work for our local law enforcement.
While driving the vehicles motor looses power. The electronics stay on but the engine is shut off. Only happens while driving, it has happened once on the highway going approx. 65mph, another time while going 55mph on a 2 lane country road, once while going 10mphin a parking lot and another while backing out of drive way at approx. 5mph. Each time it has happened the vehivle has been in motion, going straight.
Waterpump was leaking and had to be replaced.
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.
