Can't rely on, lock trunk.

This car trunk opens on its own throughout the week. It pops open on its own. Can't leave personal items in trunk. Reading through other have same issue.


Worst car I've ever owned!

Problems since day 1 2013 chevy cruze. Screen shuts off randomly and turns back on when it wants. Already spent $1800.00 fixing all my lines due to leaking randomly for no reason and I have regular maintenance done. Now my water pump has gone. Not even 10 years old Piece of crap!


Worst I have owned

We have had nothing but problems from this car. We purchased this car last year. Four months into buying this car the thermostat stopped working and had to be replaced. The car lasted another four months and the thermostat stopped working again. Several weeks later the turbo stopped working and had to be replaced. Several weeks after that, it blew a head gasket.


Most reliable car I’ve owned

I love my chevy Cruze Eco it has plenty of leg room front and back and great trunk space. The 1.4 liter turbo is awesome


Broke down a lot

I got this car when I was 16 and it was great and lovely, got me through a lot of shifts and school but it’s been a year and it’s at 178,000 miles and I’ve probably spent about $2000 in repairs in the past year, great performance but it gets a little annoying racking up the bills for repair


Great little car

Great little car if you are short like me. If you push 6 ft, get a Malibu or Trax. Sad they stopped making the cruze. Great value. Never a mechanical issue. Surprisingly good in the snow. Its not it's fault its so small! I needed more room for hauling growing boys, otherwise I would have kept that little cutie. Great mileage of course.


POS car

I bought my car with 20,000 miles and within a few months I had to replace the radiator along with many other things. As soon as it gets cold out things get bad. Lights turn on, the car shakes, and rattling noises. I’ve had many issues with the controls for heating and cooling not working at all. The interior is VERY cheaply made( I take very good care or my car so it’s not just me). I end up taking my car to the shop for repares about once a month because something breaks or leaks.


This one compares to a Lexus!

This 2013 Chevy Cruize LTZ was a gift to me. Previously I drove a 2006 Lexus IS250. I never had an American car before and was really surprised on the power and comfort of the Cruize. It had the feel of my Lexus but with additional features! The onstar emergency feature is a life saver - its better than AAA. If the car has any issue - you just connect to OnStar rep and get a vehicle code generated on the spot so you are prepared when going to the dealer! It really give the peace of mind, especially for an older car. Loved the remote start - especially on winter cold days. Just a really impressive little car.


Very Effective

This car is very gas efficient & not only that I actually feel safe driving the car. For it being an “older” model I was very impressed with the condition it was in when I bought it. Overall I love this car and would totally recommend for a everyday car!


Always having problems

My son had to replace the turbo on a 2013 Chevy Cruze. Then his passenger window Régulo went out and now the driver side regulator went out. WTH is wrong with these defective parts? SMDH
