Car's engine stopped running unexpectedly due to blown fuel pump fuse while traveling at 30 M.P.H in clear weather, during the day, on paved downtown orlando street. When engine died, lost power steering and power breaks, very difficult to control and almost got into an accident. Dealer diagnosed the issue as a coil pack problem and replaced the coil pack at a cost of $534. I am not sure how the coil pack that holds the spark plugs would cause the fuel pump fuse to blow.

Starting at 20-30K miles, service stabilitrak would come on and check engine light would blink for 30 seconds. After shutting of the car the service light would go off. Each time I took it to a dealership the code was clear and they weren't able to find out what was wrong. I got charged for $180 for checking up and not having a problem once. All the other times I brought in the vehicle they found something wrong and didn't charge me. Finally over the couple years I owned the vehicle and now at 80K miles, the service stabilitrak light had been coming on more and more, I finally got it to come on and got an appointment right away. I took it in and they took 2 days to find out that all my spark plugs and my coil pack was rusted and corroded. It cost $700. I live in California there is no salt on the roads and I don't live by the ocean. This should not have happened.

The contact owns a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze. While driving approximately 75 mph, the steering wheel seized and the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, but the failure was unable to be determined. The contact stated that the failure recurred several times. The vehicle was taken to the dealer to be serviced under a safety recall related to the electrical system and the technician stated that the water pump was leaking and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The technician also informed the contact that the water pump housing was cracked and needed to be replaced, but was not repaired. When the heater was activated, an odor of antifreeze and fuel emitted inside the vehicle. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure.

While at a stop, my car will lurch forward, like someone is pushing it from behind. Luckily I have my foot on the brake and it doesn't move forward. This has happened about 4 times this past month since I've had the car.
