Radiator Smell and dealership won't fix it
By smwavon on


2012 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


We have had our brand new 2012 Chevy Cruze LT RS back to the dealership at least 3 times and we only have 33,000 miles. 3 times were for the Transmission, first time "It needed an update", second time "valve body in the transmission needed to be replaced", third time was "another update needed for the "NEW" car. Also the third time we had it in there: We had an overpowering antifreeze smell that made driving the car very unbearable. After driving the car for a while it also seems sluggish and seems to lose power. This is our only form of transportation. We are a family of 4 and rely on this car on an everyday basis.

Best Features

A very fun car to drive, has a lot of power and will get up and move when needed.

Worst Features

When someone brings in a NEW Chevy car and says there is a problem, find the problem and fix it. Fix the antifreeze smell it makes it where you do not want to drive the car.
