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.

Just found this. The leak is not bad yet but my wife is taking it to the dealership tomorrow. It looks like it is leaking from under the pulley system around the engine block. God I hope it is not the engine. It's a nice car but I have friends whose Cruze are doing similar things. Did Chevy research the build specs at all before assembling these cars?
