Things start going wrong at 35k miles
By jayleesummers on


2012 Chevrolet Cruze LS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


I am a home health nurse and I bought my car because it was supposed to have great gas mileage and so far I am happy with it.
There is a weird noise coming from the drivers side front of the car that the service department has not been able to figure out.
It idles rough at times. The service department replaced a valve cover that they said was faulty, but the car still has problems with idling.
The transmission seems like it is slipping at times when I am trying to accelerate and lurches when downshifting
My car has been in the shop for 5 days now for the noise and the idle.
They also found a faulty water pump since it's been in there.
All in all, I still love my car, just wish they'd fix

Best Features

Bluetooth system!!!, stereo system, trunk space for the size of the car, the inside of the car looks totally sleek and has been really fun to drive other than the problems that I have had with it.

Worst Features

Cupholder--cups get stuck and it's in a weird spot, emergency brake right beside it Console--too small Fabric dash--not easy to clean at all Dust--when going down a gravel road, dust comes in thru the seatbelt holes Transmission--fix the shifting problems Mystery noise--drivers front has a noise that the service department can't figure out Rough idle--idles rough when stopped and has almost died several times Storage--needs more storage, possibly pockets on the back of the seat or storage under the seat Drivers seat--a little uncomfortable
