ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

3/11/2016 - NORTH ANDOVER, MA
I PURCHASED A NEW 2012 CRUZE ECO NEW AND CURRENTLY HAVE 48K MILES ON IT. THIS WEEKEND THE CRUZE TWICE HAD THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS: 1. DIC ERROR - ENGINE POWER REDUCED 2. DIC ERROR - SERVICE STABILITRAK 3. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ENGINE POWER WAS REDUCED TO PEAK OUT AT 10 MPH. LUCKILY THE POWER STEERING WAS UNAFFECTED AND I WAS ABLE TO GET THE CRUZE HOME WITHOUT ACCIDENT. LETTING THE CRUZE SIT FOR A FEW MINUTES IN THE OFF POSITION SEEMED TO CLEAR THE ISSUE, BUT IT WAS STILL SCARY TO HAVE THE ENGINE SHUT DOWN LIKE IT DID. LOCAL DEALER CONFIRMED THAT THE THROTTLE BODY WAS JUNK AND REPLACED IT BUT NOT UNDER ANY WARRANTY. TOTAL COST WAS $400. DEALER CONFIRMED THAT SIMILAR ISSUE IS OCCURRING WITH SIERRA PICKUPS AND THE TB IS COVERED UNDER THE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY. VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT THE TB WAS NOT COVERED AS AN ENGINE COMPONENT. MANY CRUZE OWNERS ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM...LOOK ON CRUZETALK.COM. THE TB SHOULD NOT BE WEARING OUT AT 48K...OR 100K.

ENGINE

2/17/2016 - BEDFORD, IN
VEHICLE CUTS OUT WHILE AT A STOP LIGHT LIKE IT WANTS TO SHUT OFF, CAR WAS RUNNING ABOUT 10 MINUTES AND IN MOTION AT 30 MPH FOR 5 MINUTES WHEN IT STARTED, THEN DROVE ON THE HIGHWAY FOR 30 MINUTES AND THROUGH TOWN ANOTHER 10 MINUTES, WHEN I GOT HOME IT WAS STILL CUTTING OUT, I WAS ALMOST HOME WHEN I NOTICED THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. TODAY I DID FILL MY GAS TANK. IT HAS DONE THIS ON OTHER OCCASIONS BUT NOT AS BAD AS IT DID TODAY AND THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. MY CAR HAS A LITTLE OVER 70,000 MILES ON IT, I'VE DONE REGULAR OIL CHANGES, WHEN I LOOKED UNDER THE HOOD I NOTICED LIQUID AROUND MY MOTOR GASKETS AND THE TRAY UNDER IT, I COULDN'T TELL IF IT WAS OIL OR ANTIFREEZE. WARRANTY HAS RAN OUT.
