My tires kept splitting as if my tires were being cut. Kept having problems with tires having cuts/splits. I kept getting tires balanced thinking tires were off balanced or needed rotating but problem continued. Tires would go down after being driven and then parked. Happened more than once. I had to change original tires to stop the problem.

TPMS went on thanksgiving morning tire pressure was 10. Filled tire up to 32, went back out later tire pressure was at 10. Check it before going to sleep, tire pressure was at 4, filled it up to 37. Checked it in the morning and it was 4. took car to discount tire, technician said there was a bubble on my tire and it could not be repaired needed a new tire. $163 later. This car is only six months old and I should not have to be replacing it. They are Firestone tires and I am very angry that I have to put a new tire on my brand new car.

Cruze 4-cyl

I was driving down the freeway at 65, the car jolted to the left unexpectedly and then corrected. It didn't feel right so I got off freeway exit and pulled into a parking lot. As I entered the lot the right front wheel severed from the axel and car skidded to a stop. The car had a recall right after I bought car in may, for a front axel right half shaft fracture. This was repaired in August.

Cruze 4-cyl

  • 6,800 miles
I parallel parked my car on a hillside street with the front wheels angled to touch the concrete curb per the city's hillside parking rules. I removed the key and locked the doors. When I returned to drive home after the car was safely parked for about 1 hour ( time was about 6:30 pm--still daylight) I could not turn the ignition key to unlock the electric steering lock. None of the electrical accessories worked because the steering wheel was locked. I couldn't open the electric windows, so I was sweating with all the windows closed. I was able to call onstar with my cell phone for help and they confirmed that my battery was fully charged and they had me try my other ignition key and to repeatedly turn/rock the steering wheel forcefully to unlock it with the key in the ignition. After nothing worked, the onstar service person said he would call a tow truck for service. After we hung up, and I was waiting, I tried the ignition key again, and the key turned and unlocked the electric steering lock. I could start the car to drive again.I called onstar back to cancel the tow service call. I took the car to my Chevrolet dealer 3 days later for a routine maintenance appointment I had made 3 weeks before. Nothing they could do, except advise me not to angle the front wheel when I parked & locked the car. This does not seem like a safe way to design an steering ignition lock. It took me over 45 minutes to finally unlock the steering wheel & start the car.

Cruze 4-cyl

  • 2,400 miles
I am a very frustrated mother with this vehicle purchase. I purchased a Chevrolet Cruze for my son as a gift for his high school graduation February 2, 2014. A month later there was a stop on sales because of the dangerous recall for the front axle right half that can break. The car has been sitting in the dealer for 2 months and I am making payments on a vehicle that we cannot even use. I know it is not the dealers fault, it is the GMC manufacturing company. I know someone needs to be held accountable for this. This is a disgrace to our country. How can one of the biggest car companies in the United States be so irresponsible" after all the bailout money that was giving to them out of our tax dollars. I do not even feel safe for my son to drive that car any more even if they replace the parts. I would probably need to get a second or third opinion. What am I my supposed to do trade in the car for what? for another vehicle that has more recalls. It looks like all of the GMC vehicles have recalls. We purchased the Cruze because it was economical on gas and look I have a frustrated teen that is starting college in less that a month and cannot drive his brand new car. I keep getting messages about other recalls, the recent one was the defective air bags. Please tell me what I can do to feel better. I called GMC asked to talk to a supervisor and waited and waited and they wasted my time because no one wants to hear a mother complaining about her child's safety. If everyone would do their job correctly, no one would be having these problems. I really hope someone is held accountable for all of this. How can they replace the parts with used parts" I really hope that all of us being affected by these get some incentive to keep our cars and to help us to ease our frustration. I am really concerned about my son's safety. Help!!! thanks so much for your time.
