CarComplaints.com Notes: What’s that smell – it’s a tad sweet with a tinge of chemical toxicity? If you own a 2011 Cruze it’s probably a coolant leak. It’s a widespread and notorious problem for the car and is the subject of a class-action lawsuit filed in the state of New York. And that’s not the only problem 2011 owners face…

Many say the 2011 model year suffers from a throttle lag that is probably due to a fauly electronic throttle control. The problem is signifigant enough that some owners say they are too scared to drive their cars. Those that do get behind the wheel often say their transmission isn’t shifting properly and problems start occuring as early as 15,000 miles.

All of this leads us to say you’re probably better off without this car’s headaches (they’re probably chemically-induced anyway).

problem #1

Sep 092012

Cruze V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


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.
