My 2016 Chevy Cruze ls started making a roaring noise while driving down the road then the steering got very stiff I barely made it home and I called the dealership and they informed me that if I continue to drive the car this way the steering will lock up at anytime and it could cause a very bad accident for I will not have no control over the car.

It doesnżT happen all the time but every few days passenger side doors stay it's open whether IżM driving or sitting still. The locks will try to lock when they are already locked and the door warning sign goes off. Also if my front tire needs air the back tire warning sign will go off and vice versa. The first time I realized this I had put air in the front tire but the light stayed on for the back tire. When I put air I the front tire the back tire warning sign went out. Today the radio went out but the screen didnżT cut off. The car is parked and keys are not in the ignition but the radio screen is still lit up. Updated 11/9/18

I purchased the vehicle in March of 2017 with 36,000 miles on it. A few days after purchase, I've noticed that the radio will randomly shut off and come right back on. Every time this happens I will also see a message appear on the dashboard stating "service stabilitrak". I notice it happens once in a while if I am driving through city streets. When I drove the car on the highway, I realized it shuts off and on more frequently. I also noticed that when my radio flickers off, my lights and turn signals also shut off.

Took my car in to have recall work done (high mount stop lamp fasteners leak ) chmsl. And I have had a water leak ever since. My car has been to the dealership 3 times in the past month. Every time they tell me its something different that they fix, yet I still have a water leak that could cause a short in the printed circuit board resulting in an unattended fire.
