2013 Chevrolet Cruze 1LT 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


We developed spots on the hood where the paint peeled away. We've been to the Chevy dealer and spoke to Chevy corporate. They concluded it was bird poop that caused the paint chips but refused to fix the problem, informing us it will cost $500 to fix. Our actual 25 MPG is also very disappointing and not what we expected. In the year we've had the car, there have been 2 recalls on safety issues. If I had known about these issues, I would not have purchased the car and I warn others to be careful. It's extremely disappointing that Chevy won't stand behind the quality of its cars. Will never purchase another Chevy.

Worst Features

Chevrolet should fix the paint chips on the hood free of charge. Any car should be able to withstand bird poop without having paint issues.

Huh. Own a 2014 Cruze 2LT (1.4 turbo) and am averaging 31.2 mpg for the life of the car (4,000 miles) so far. ... Averaging 39 mpg on current tank of gas (180 miles thus far). People think driving 70-80 mph will get that economy, but it won't, and that's not how cars are rated for mileage efficiency.
