Complaints logged with the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze include faults with the check engine light, vehicles stalling, and problems with acceleration.
Check Engine Light Illuminated
Drivers have reported issues with check engine lights illuminating on this model of car, and at times for no apparent reason. Both dealers and the manufacturers themselves have struggled to find the root cause of this fault which is very frustrating for customers. Some drivers have found that there are water and gas leaks due to a loose gas cap that caused the lights to appear but many are left with a car that they now expect to be a lemon.
Drivers of this car have found that their car suddenly stalls without reason and without the auto-stop being activated. When the car has been taken to dealers some have found the starter to be completely dead and others have an intermittent fault. The starter being inoperable could mean that the batteries are being drained causing the vehicle to stall.
Vehicle Hesitates on Acceleration
Several customers have reported problems with this vehicle jerking and lunging when the acceleration pedal is pressed. For some, the vehicle lost all power upon acceleration for an unknown reason. When diagnostic checks were carried out some vehicles were found to be experiencing ‘turbo lag’ which could be fixed upon reset, however, some customers just experience an ongoing issue.
Failure of Tire Pressure Monitor
Customers have complained about the tire pressure monitor completely failing. The tire light comes on but when checked the tires are actually ok. This can be very dangerous if you come off the road in a dangerous place or you go on to ignore the light as you think that your tires are ok.
If you have the 2016 or 2017 models of Chevrolet Cruze you may also be experiencing the above issues. The 2016 and 2017 models have also had complaints about the engine, car shaking and jerking a lot.
The NHTSA has issued recalls for the 2018 Chevy Cruze which include:
- Insufficient coating on rear brake caliper pistons
- Incorrect welding on the back seat
