Mixed feelings!

Just before I was to make my 2nd payment, I already need a new motor. How? However. If I read correctly, it appears there is a recall that my car needed. On the bright side, after all these recalls are complete, I will have a brand new car so...

Worst car ever owned over 20 new ones

Car decent ride but repairs with less than 60,000 miles were horrible!Bought new priced ok but would never buy again!I have moved over to Ford again

BUYING A CHEVY CRUZE WAS A MISTAKE!

This has got to be the worst car ever made. I bought it without knowing how crappy this car is. It ran ok the first month and then the neverending nightmare began. 1. Heater / Air conditioning issues 2. Heater hose coolant leak 3. Radiator leak 4. TPMS 5. Overheat - burning smell when heat is turned on medium or higher mode 6. Check engine light comes on and off whenever 7. Bad insulation car fogs and frosts up when its cold out 8. Engine oil leaks and splatters EVERYWHERE 9. Head gasket and gasket seal leak 10. Horrible ventilation 11. When it is cold out it is impossible to listen to or enjoy music because its like listening to music through blown speakers 12. A CHEAPLY MADE VEHICLE USING THE CHEAPEST MATERIALS AND IS VERY OVERPRICED. YOU WILL END UP SPENDING A FORTUNE ON REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE. This car is NOT worth the headaches. Mattel makes better quality Power Wheels than this!

I hate that car

This car has truly put me in a money bind I have had my car for about 7-9 days over a month and after I purchased my car I went and got a tune-up make sure all of my stuff was correct because I knew I was going on a little vacation from South Carolina to the state of New Jersey and I was going to be on the road for a while so I made sure everything was up you know correct well on my ride to New Jersey all of a sudden the check engine light comes on once the check engine light comes on I go I go to the gas station get gas and to my surprise my car wouldn't start I didn't know I don't allow my car to go under a half a tank but every time I get gas my car cuts off it don't crank I have to wait for about 10-15 minutes before it starts then once I got to New Jersey I decided I was going to park my car I was going to check my oil and everything make sure everything was still correct make sure I didn't need anything so I went I got all my belongings out of the car because I wasn't coming back out to that day or night I was going to rest well the next day around 11:00 00 I decide I wanted to get in my car and go to the store well within 5 minutes or less of pulling out of the yard it started overheating and went from overheating to just cutting off and it still has not cut back on and beans though I had to get back home I had to leave my car in the state of New Jersey and catch a bus back home the sad part is that I'm making payments on the car well I was supposed to make my first payment on the car and I have no car to drive

Car is very reliable

The car Mets all my needs, it’s clean and no damage or accidents. If the car is taking care off it could last up to 5 years

1.9

Piece of junk

Worse car other then a Kia when they very first came to the U.S. Severely underpowered and transmission problems. Never buy a Cruze again. Everything about the car is very low end.

They told me brakes were 70% that was a lie

I asked them 3 times regarding the brakes was told they were checked and they were at 70% good that was a lie. I will be getting them replaced this coming week.
