Worst Car I've Ever Owned

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


Numerous problems as others have mentioned.
Hesitant, jerky transmission that never shifts when you need it, like merging, lane changing, or accelerating after a turn.
Transmission bucks while cruising at constant speeds.
Car occasionally lurches forward, or hops with the brake pedal fully pressed.
Steering wheel is off-center and car pulls to one side.
Thinly padded seats offer no thigh or back support. Rear seats are even more uncomfortable and very cramped.
MyLink randomly restarts and drops Bluetooth connections frequently, and radio reception is spotty. Sub-par 25 MPG in city driving.
Steering wheel obstructs view of gauges. Bad blind spots.
This will be my last GM vehicle.

My experience would suggest discontinuing the Cruze and starting from scratch. Build quality is severely lacking.

i am experiencing issues with auto transmission as well. especially at low speeds . transmission seems confused. and have noticed a slight pull to the left now that you mention your steering issue.
