Cruze LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles

Smoke was coming out from under the hood due to overheating from using the heat. I paid over $600 but it is not fixed. This is just the last issue I have had, it is in the shop more often than not. I have thousands of dollars into fixing this car. Every problem complained about online about the 2011 Cruze, my car has. It has been a nightmare.

Cruze LS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,500 miles

Overheating of engine, engine coolant sensor , smell giving me bad migraines, scaring me to death not wanting to drive to work or anywhere thinking the car is going to stop. I just had to replace the fob key. A mess, this car a real mess. Brake sensor messed up too. I need a lawsuit so I can replace this car with another car so I can know I'm safe. Please help.

Car overheated after driving half hour. AC too hot for engine light came on. I stopped, heater turned off and engine cooled. I called Chevrolet in Milwaukee and they stated there were no other complaints. Will update later.
