SERVICE BRAKES

8/8/2014 - EL PRADO, NM
ON SEVERAL OCCURRENCES THE BRAKES FROM MY 2012 CHEVY CRUZE HAVE FAILED TO WORK. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE WHEN BACKING UP. THE BRAKE PEDAL GETS REALLY HARD AND YOU REALLY NEED TO PUSH HARD ON BRAKE PEDAL TO SLOW DOWN, VEHICLE WILL NOT ALWAYS STOP. I HAVE NOTICED IT THE AC IS RUNNING THIS WILL HAPPEN EVERY TIME I BACK UP. I HAVE HAD MANY INSTANCES WHERE I HAVE ALMOST HIT OTHER CARS OR OBJECTS. I AM EXTREMELY WORRIED ABOUT THIS BECAUSE I USUALLY HAVE MY 2 YOUNG CHILDREN WITH ME WHEN THIS HAPPENS. I HAVE TAKEN MY CAR INTO THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP TO GET THIS CHECKED OUT. THEY HAVE TOLD ME THAT THE VACUUM SWITCH HAS ALREADY BEEN REPLACED AND THERE WOULD BE A $100 CHARGE TO DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM EVEN THOUGH MY VEHICLE IS STILL COVERED BY WARRANTY. THE LAST TIME I TOOK IT IN THEY SAID NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH MY VEHICLE, EVEN THOUGH I AM STILL EXPERIENCING POOR BRAKING.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

8/6/2014 - BRYAN, OH
BESIDES THE TRANSMISSION COMPLAINT I HAVE ALREADY MADE, I AM ALSO EXPERIENCING CONSTANT ELECTRICAL ISSUES. AN UPDATE WAS ALREADY RAN ON THE CAR'S COMPUTER FOR THIS COMPLAINT AND THE IGNITION SWITCH WAS LUBRICATED (HOPEFULLY THAT WILL PREVENT THE STEERING LOCK UP THAT OTHERS EXPERIENCE). NEITHER GM SOLUTION HAS PROVIDED AN END TO MY TROUBLE. DINGING WHEN KEYS AREN'T IN, CAR WON'T ALWAYS START, SERVICE THIS OR THAT DASH LIGHTS, RADIO DISPLAY GOES ON AND OFF, I CAN'T OPEN MY TRUNK WITHOUT THE PUSH BUTTON KEY FOB, THE STEERING IS NOW PULLING, AND ALSO THE HEADLIGHTS ARE NOW TURNING OFF AND ON WITHOUT MY HAND. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS OF MY CAR, THINGS I SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO CONCERN MYSELF WITH...WHICH COULD LEAD TO ANY MALFUNCTION BUT THE CHEVROLET TECHS CAN NOT DIAGNOSE WHAT THEY SEE WITH THEIR OWN EYES BECAUSE THE COMPUTER OF THE CAR DOESN'T TELL THEM ANYTHING IS WRONG. AREN'T THERE ALTERNATE TROUBLESHOOTING METHODS INCLUDED WITH THE BLUEPRINT THEY DESIGNED BESIDES RELYING ON A POSSIBLY THIRD-PARTY CONTROL MODULE THAT ISN'T LOGGING ERRORS? I JUST HOPE I'M READY FOR WHATEVER HAPPENS AND THAT I CAN CONTROL A LOSS OF POWER WITHOUT SUFFERING INJURY TO MYSELF OR OTHERS. SCARY THINGS TO THINK ABOUT ON A 100 MILE ONE WAY, HIGHWAY SPEED COMMUTE. ALL OF THESE CARS SHOULD BE OVERHAULED OR REPLACED INSTEAD OF WAITING TO SEE WHICH ONE'S COMPUTER FROM WHICH LINE CRASHES FIRST BEFORE WE PUT OUT A RECALL. THESE ARE REAL SAFETY CONCERNS THAT ARE KILLING PEOPLE. CONCERNS THAT I CAN'T JUST TRADE OFF TO ANOTHER BLIND CONSUMER AND THEIR FAMILY. CONCERNS THAT EITHER CONSUMER OR MANUFACTURER HAVE TO PAY FOR. WE PAY WITH OUR SAFETY AND HARD EARNED DOLLAR TO OWN THEIR VEHICLES THAT THEY MAKE AND DON'T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY IN MAINTAINING A STANDARD FOR.

THE CONTACT OWNS A 2012 CHEVROLET CRUZE. THE CONTACT STATED THAT THE VEHICLE HESITATED AND STALLED WHILE DRIVING VARIOUS SPEEDS. WHILE DRIVING ON AN INCLINE, THE CONTACT HAD TO KEEP THE CLUTCH PEDAL DEPRESSED IN FIRST AND SECOND GEAR TO PREVENT THE VEHICLE FROM STALLING. THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL ALSO HAD TO REMAIN DEPRESSED TO MAINTAIN ACCELERATION. THE VEHICLE ALSO STALLED WHEN THE GEAR WAS IN REVERSE. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER MORE THAN ONCE, BUT THE FAILURE COULD NOT BE DUPLICATED. IN ADDITION, THE AIR CONDITIONING AND HEAT WERE INOPERABLE. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT REPAIRED AND THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOTIFIED. THE APPROXIMATE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 100.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

8/5/2014 - YORK, NE
I GOT MY CAR IN MARCH & ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! FOR THE FIRST FEW MONTHS I HAD NO PROBLEMS. THEN I STARTED TO NOTICE THE RADIO FLICKERING ON AND OFF WHILE DRIVING FOR NO REASON, WHICH EVENTUALLY LED TO THE RADIO FLICKERING CONTINUOUSLY AFTER USING BLINKERS &WINDOWS. "SERVICE STABILITRAK" FLASHES ON THE DISPLAY OFTEN BUT VERY QUICKLY AND GOES OFF. DOESN'T OCCUR EVERY TIME I DRIVE, BUT IT DOES IT MORE TIMES THAN NOT. NOW THE RADIO WILL FLICKER AND I WILL OCCASIONALLY LOSE CRUISE CONTROL AND POWER STEERING. I ALSO HAVE NO BLINKERS/RADIO WHEN THIS HAPPENS. IT USUALLY ONLY HAPPENS BRIEFLY AND WILL RETURN TO NORMAL SOON AFTER, BUT IT CONTINUES TO DO IT OFF AND ON UNTIL I PARK. I HAVE ALSO NOTICED THIS OCCURRING WHEN I SHIFT GEARS TO PARK. MOST RECENTLY I WENT TO START MY CAR AND IT JUST CLICKED AND WOULDN'T START. I GOT IT TO START AND IT SAID "SERVICE ANTI THEFT DETERRENT," THEN CHANGED TO "SERVICE POWER STEERING" JUST AS I LOST POWER STEERING WHILE DRIVING. "SERVICE STABILITRAK QUICKLY FLASHED NEXT ALL WHILE I LOST BLINKERS, POWER STEERING, AND RADIO. I PARKED, TURNED MY CAR OFF AND RESTARTED IT AND IT WAS JUST FINE. IT HAS BEEN TO THE CHEVY DEALER MULTIPLE TIMES BUT THEY CANNOT GET A CODE TO READ BECAUSE THEY CAN'T GET THE RADIO TO FLICKER, ETC BECAUSE IT ONLY HAPPENS EVERY SO OFTEN BUT WHEN IT DOES HAPPEN IT IS SCARY! SO THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO TO FIX IT. PLEASE LOOK INTO IT AS I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR 2 MONTHS NOW AND I DO NOT FEEL LIKE THIS CAR IS RELIABLE WHICH IS THE REASON I BOUGHT IT! THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE AS I HAVE READ SEVERAL COMPLAINTS THAT ARE EXTREMELY SIMILAR TO MINE! I ALSO HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THE PROBLEMS ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO WORSEN AFTER READING THE OTHER COMPLAINTS.IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM. PLEASE DON'T WAIT UNTIL SOMETHING TRAGIC HAPPENS BEFORE SOMETHING IS DONE ABOUT THIS! PLEASE! NE
