5/5/2015 - WASHINGTON, DC
WHILE DRIVING ON HIGHWAY WITH MY SUNROOF RAISED I HEARD AN EXPLOSION AND FELT PIECES OF GLASS FALLING. WHEN I PULLED OVER I NOTICED MY SUNROOF GLASS EXPLODED FROM THE INSIDE OUT. NOTHING HIT MY CAR. I DID NOT HEAR A THUD OR SEE ANYTHING ROLL OFF MY CAR. THERE IS NO DENT. JUST A HOLE WHERE THE GLASS EXPLODED.

ITS BEEN HAPPENING 5 DAYS NOW.I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY TOLD ME IT WAS MY DRIVE WISE INSURANCE TRACKER THAT WAS MAKING THE CAR JERK SO IT WAS REMOVED.THE PROBLEM IS STILL HAPPENING. IT JERKS WHEN I STOP AND GO BUT ITS FINE WHEN I'M AT A STEADY SPEED.

SERVICE BRAKES

4/23/2015 - PITTSBORO, IN
THE BRAKE LIGHTS WOULD RANDOMLY COME ON AND STAY ON WHEN CAR WAS OFF AND SITTING STILL. I REPLACED THE BRAKE PEDAL POSITION SENSOR AND IT SEEMED TO STOP. NOW, THE BRAKE PEDAL DOESN'T COME BACK UP ALL OF THE WAY AFTER APPLYING THE BRAKES. THIS KEEPS THE BRAKE LIGHT ON AND THE BRAKES SLIGHTLY APPLIED. THE ONLY WAY TO GET IT ALL THE WAY UP IS TO PULL IT FROM BEHIND WITH YOUR FOOT. THIS SEEMS TO BE PART OF THE BRAKE PUSHROD AND BRAKE ASSIST ISSUE THEY ARE HAVING, BUT HAVEN'T DONE A RECALL.

ANOTHER TECHNICHIAN FROM TNT AUTO IN COLUMBIA, MD SAID THAT ALL THE WIRES SEEM TO BE ON THERE TIGHT TOO.

STEERING

4/14/2015 - HARRISONBURG, VA
I RECEIVED MY CHEVY CRUZE IN NOVEMBER OF 2014 USED WITH APROX. 59K MILES. APRIL 7TH DRIVING DOWN A HIGHWAY AT 55-60MPH IT SUDDENLY STARTED SLOWING DOWN AND WOULD NOT ACCELERATE. IT WOULD JERK AND THE ENGINE WOULD REV LIKE IF YOU WERE TO BE IDLE AND IN PARK AND PRESS THE GAS THAT'S THE SOUND IT MADE. I DID NOT NOTICE THE CHECK ENGINE COME ON OR ANY OTHER LIGHTS AS I WAS TRYING TO CONTROL MY CAR. THE SPEEDOMETER AND RPM INDICATOR STARTED ACTING ERRATICALLY WHILE DOING SO. THE GAUGE WOULD GO UP AND DOWN AND THE CAR WAS SLOWING DOWN. THE STEERING ALSO BECAME VERY SOFT. IF I WERE TO TAKE MY PINKY FINGER AND TURN THE WHEEL IT WOULD HAVE MOVED THAT'S HOW SOFT IT WAS. ALL THIS HAPPENED MULTIPLE TIMES DURING A 30 MINUTE TIME PERIOD. AFTER I SLOWED DOWN AND TRIED GOING OVER 30MPH IT WOULD START TO ACT UP AGAIN. WHILE THIS WAS HAPPENED I ONLY HAD 66K MILES. I GOT IT TOWED TO THE DEALER INSTEAD OF TAKING MY CHANCES DRIVING IT THERE. IT WAS SITTING THERE A WEEK BEFORE THEY EVEN TOUCHED IT AND THEY CLAIM THEY CANT FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT. I THINK CHEVY DEALERS CLAIM THEY CANT FIND ANYTHING WHEN YOUR CAR IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO FIX IT.
