ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

2/7/2015 - PICO RIVERA, CA
WHILE DRIVING TO WORK I WAS SIGNALING TO SWITCH LANES FOR MY EXIT OFF THE FREEWAY. BEGAN TO MERGE AND MY STEERING WHEEL LOCKED. LUCKILY IT'S WASN'T FOR LONG AND THE FREEWAY WAS NOT BUSY. HOWEVER THE FACT THAT MY NEWLY PURCHASED VEHICLE HAS A GLITCH IS SADDENING. WHAT'S EVEN WORSE THEIRS NO MAINTENANCE LIGHT OR CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, SOMETHING TO MAKE THE DEALERSHIP BELIEVE THEIR IS A PROBLEM. ONLY A FLASHING LIGHT THAT SAYS CHECK STABILITRACK, TRACTION CONTROL, POWERING STEERING AND AT THE SAME TIME MY ABS SERVICE LIGHT BEGINS TO FLASH. REALLY HOPE CHEVY PUTS OUT A RECALL..

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

2/7/2015 - MARYLAND, MD
2012 CHEVY CRUZE 6-SPEED ECO. AFTER DRIVING APPROX 15 MILE IN CITY TRAFFIC, CAME TO A STOP AND PARKED. APPLIED THE PARKING BRAKE AND THE CAR STARTED BEEPING. I LOOKED AT THE INSTRUMENT PANEL AND NOTICED SPEEDOMETER WAS PEGGING AT AROUND 90MPH AND THE DISPLAY FLASHED THAT THE HAND BRAKE WAS ON. AT THE SAME TIME THE RADIO VOLUME RAISED. AFTER I RELEASED THE PARKING BRAKE, WITHIN A FEW SECONDS THE GAUGE RETURNED TO NORMAL BUT THE RADIO VOLUME STAYED HIGH. I TURNED THE CAR OFF.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

2/4/2015 - MURRIETA, CA
THIS IS THE SECOND INCIDENT (MARCH 2014 & FEBRUARY 3, 2015 RESULTING IN THE LOSS OF THE POWER/CONTROL WHILE OPERATING THE VEHICLE, BOTH INCIDENTS WERE TERRIFYING. I PURCHASED MY CERTIFIED USED CHEVY CRUZE IN FEBRUARY 2014. IN MARCH/APRIL 2014 IMMEDIATELY AFTER STARTUP (TRAVELING UNDER 10 MPH / APPROX. 60,000 MILES) THE CAR BEGAN EXPERIENCING ELECTRICAL ISSUE; THE DISPLAYS ON THE DASH WOULD FLASH INTERMITTENTLY FOLLOWED BY WARNING LIGHTS (POWER STEERING, BRAKES, TRACTION CONTROL ETC.) AND A COMPLETE LOSS OF POWER TO MY CAR WHILE DRIVING, NO STEERING, NO BRAKES ETC. I FILED A COMPLAINT IN 2014 (NHTSA - NO. 10574169 #14311:SPECIAL COVERAGE ADJUSTMENT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE LOOSE. I IMMEDIATELY BROUGHT MY CAR INTO THE DEALERSHIP FOR SERVICING. ULTIMATELY, THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINALS WERE REPLACED AND THE SERVICE WAS COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. YESTERDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2015, I EXPERIENCED A SIMILAR INCIDENT. SHORTLY AFTER STARTING MY CAR (TRAVELING 5MPH / APPROX. 84,000 MILES) THE CAR BEGAN TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TURNED ON AND AGAIN THE CAR BEGAN EXPERIENCING SIMILAR POWER LOSS TO MY CAR WHILE DRIVING. MY CAR WAS TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THE CAUSE WAS AGAIN IDENTIFIED AS A NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL, A BAD INTAKE/GASKET LEAKING AND A SMALL ENGINE OIL SEEP. THESE ARE SOME OF THE SAME ISSUES IDENTIFIED WITH THE INITIAL INCIDENT IN 2014 WHEN THESE PARTS WERE REPLACED. THIS IS A TERRIFYING SCENARIO AND TO HAVE THE SAME ISSUES OCCUR IN SUCH A SHORT TIME PERIOD AFTER THE PARTS WERE REPLACED IS NOT COMFORTING AND LEAVES ME WITH FEAR THAT THIS COULD OCCUR AGAIN, I DO NOT WANT TO CONTINUE TO TAKE CHANCES WITH THE SAFETY OF THIS VEHICLE. I HOPE THIS IS TAKEN SERIOUSLY AND RESOLVED TO AVOID THIS FROM CONTINUING TO HAPPEN TO MYSELF AND OTHERS IN THE SAME SITUATION AND TO HOPEFULLY AVOID THIS FROM TURNING INTO A SERIOUS AND/OR DEADLY SITUATION.

I WAS AT A STOP LIGHT WHEN THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN I PUSHED THE ACCELERATOR AN THE CAR WAS JERKY. I THE CAR FINALLY MOVED AND THERE WAS A LOUD BANG FROM THE REAR AND IT FELT LIKE I HAD BEEN HIT IN THE REAR. THE CAR JERKED, SPUTTERED AND THEN STOPPED MOVING.
