2011 Chevrolet Cruze: Lazy Temperature Gauge

August 30, 2011

Our 2011 Chevrolet Cruze never learned to read. Look, we aren't the type to belittle the poor guy by telling him that sign says he can't run the air conditioning anymore. So we keep driving. And the Cruze keeps belting out the cold.

It's 120-degrees outside and we just gained 4,000 feet in elevation. The Chevy doesn't care one bit. It goes about doing its thing. Now the temperature gauge is another story...

While the Cruze is busy keeping us comfortable the temp gauge does nothing. Once it reaches operating temperature the needle just sits there, reading at a steady hashmark next to a thicker hashmark degrees. Steady is good. But we'd sure like to see some numbers on the face for reference.
