Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

My vehicle was totaled in an accident in which the drivers airbag did not deploy. Due to the fact that my son (the driver) who recently returned from the military was not in my insurance policy they refuse coverage. 2 weeks after the incident I received a letter from Chevrolet informing me about a recall on my vehicle pertaining to the reason of the accident.I filed a claim with Chevrolet, filed a claim with GM motors. Till this day I have called and left messages and they won't respond to my calls.

While driving on city streets the acceleration declines and almost stops. When trying to regain speed after a complete stop the car lunges forward then stops, , the RPM goes crazy, the red zone when entering the freeway I have very little power and have experienced hesitation. When I reach freeway speed I may sense a decline in speed but this doesn't happen all the time. The Chevrolet garage is unable to duplicate the problem or identify the cause, no light alerts.

I've only has the car a little over a year. My check engine light came on last month. I went to have it checked and I was told it was the catalytic converter. I also had a secund opinion fine and was told the same. There is no reason why the catalytic converter should need to be replaced so soon. I gave been checking for recalls and haven't found anything yet.

I currently own a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze ls that I have owned for a year with 59,000 miles. In this vehicle I have been experiencing power loss while accelerating on interstate, transmission disengages and reengages and jerks very hard while trying to accelerate. It will not accelerate more than 45 mph on interstate. It will then operate normally after about 5-10 miles after transmission disengages and reengages. Also has no power or acceleration while A/C is on.

problem #1

  • 5,000 miles
When driving in a straight line at highway speed, the vehicle will not make small steering corrections. When a slight correction is attempted, a "notch" or "hitch" is felt in the steering with increased resistance in the wheel, upon overcoming the "notch" in the steering, the vehicle overcorrects and must be brought back. While the behavior occurs in a variety of temperatures and climate conditions, it seems only to occur once the vehicle has reached operating temperature and remained there for 30-60 minutes or more. The behavior also does not occur in low-speed driving or routes, such as curves, that require constant steering input, but only when small corrections are needed during straight-line highway driving. While the issue poses only a minor risk on dry, open road, it could cause serious damage or injury in tight traffic or poor road conditions such as snow or ice.
