2015 Chevrolet Cruze Owner Comments

problem #7

Dec 222016


  • 39,000 miles


Power assist failed, making steering difficult, happened during lane change on freeway at 70 mph, this happened in conjunction with random screen loss on infotainment screen. Also random error messages. Upon taking car to dealer, they agreed it was probably an issue addressed under special coverage 14311, but it turned out that it was not. My 24 yr old daughter was driving, I am thankful she survived, no one should experience loss of power steering, especially on the freeway. Oddly I ended up paying out of my pocket for a new battery and a pos and a neg cable. It would appear that GM should alert more owners of this issue than they have so far, to prevent further deaths.

The brake pedal depresses beyond the gas pedal, sometimes causing my wife or myself to hit the gas while braking. The dealer says this is normal and we should learn to live with it. I wanted the brake pedal pulled up, but was told you can't do that on a Chevy Cruze. If this is true, I believe this is an accident waiting to happen, if it hasn't already.

Cruze 4-cyl

Driving from ski area in line of cars at 15mph when cars ahead started to stop. Had "snowflake" button pushed. Brakes appeared not to engage, progressively pushed on brake harder but no effect, fortunately by the time of impact car had slowed to 5mph and airbags did not deploy. Damage to front grille. Turning off "snowflake" (ABS) returned braking to normal.

Around November 29, 2014 I was driving the 2015 Chevy cruz while out of town driving on the highway going around 55 miles I was pulled over by a police reporting that I was driving 75 miles, but when I slightly hit my brakes to slow down the car didn't change its speed. Based on the police's report of the speed he reported me going the odometer reading is wrong or set too high in this vehicle and will cause accidents if not fixed. It appears that the digital odometer is wrong in this model and needs to be fixed to include the breaks stalling, and odometer reading reporting the wrong speed, please send me report via email.
