My 2012 Cruze automatic 1.4 loses power, but only sporadically. I can several weeks in a row without it happening. Though I am still pressing on the accelerator, it will slow down to about 40 MPH. When it kicks back in, after changing gears a few times,there is a power surge.

Do you drive a 2012 CHEVROLET CRUZE?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
