If you have had a problem with your 2016 Chevrolet Cruze you may be entitled to a refund. While this model of Chevy can be a great car, buyers have discovered issues after driving off the dealership. The major complaints with the 2016 Chevy Cruze are that the car vibrates excessively, engine concerns, and the vehicle overheating.
It can be normal to experience slight vibrations when traveling over rough roads, but if the shaking is excessive there could be a serious underlying issue. General Motors have acknowledged that some customers may experience vibration problems with the steering wheel when driving at slow speeds, but drivers have reported experiencing shaking from underneath the vehicle as well.
Check Engine Light On
If the engine light has illuminated on your dashboard, then you may have purchased a lemon vehicle. The Chevy Cruze appears to have a repeated engine light check issue. The most common reason for the engine light flashing is due to the engine misfiring, something which is serious, can be a safety concern, and should be taken in to the dealer’s service center. Other causes of this complaint include a faulty airflow censor or catalytic convertor.
Your car usually overheats if there is an issue with either your radiator fan, your thermostat or there is a leak somewhere. Often the cause of this complaint is difficult to detect which is why so many buyers have problems getting this issue resolved with their dealership.
In addition to the complaints listed above regarding the 2016 Chevy Cruze, owners have experienced the following issues as well:
- Antifreeze leak problems—activating a toxic smell
- Stiff steering wheel
- Risk of the vehicle rolling due to a fault in the electrical system when the key is removed without the transmission in PARK
The NHTSA has issued recalls for the Chevy Cruze which include:
- Exterior Lighting Inoperable
- Poor Visibility
- Seat-Back Recliner Mechanism Not Welded Properly
- Fuel System Failure. There is a risk of fire due to a fuel leak that can occur if the rear of the car was hit.
