CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

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.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 012011

Cruze LTZ 1.4L V4 Ecotech

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70 miles


I purchased the Cruze and one hour later, on a 90 degree day, the thermostat shows it is-41 degrees Fahrenheit outside and blasts the heat. It was terrible. I had my mother in the car and worried it would overheat and cause a safety issue. I shut the car off for 20 minutes and it corrected itself. After driving for 15 minutes the issue happened again, so I returned to the dealer.
