CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze suffers from a throttle lag that gives many owners an unsafe feeling while driving.

According to reports, there is a significant lag between the time you press the accelerator and when the transmission actually engages. This has owners complaining about the responsiveness of their car in safety situations such as trying to cross a busy road. The 2011 model year is equipped with an electronic throttle control where there is no direct link between the accelerator pedal and the throttle body, leaving many to suggest that this is the source of the problem.

Interestingly, owners of the 2011 model year have gone on to test drive the 2012 Cruze and report it does not have the same transmission issue.

Cruze V6

after being on second tranny after only 20,000 miles and it occasionally screws up, the AC drain, never knew they had one, got stopped up and dumped lots of water below passenger foot carpet. Dealer said they fixed, did not say how it was clogged, and did say they made hole bigger. They vacuumed that 1/4 of the car and refused to vacuum the entire car. Said they don't do that any more. To hell with GM and Obama- forever.
