Do not buy the 2014 Chevy Cruze

My 2014 Chevy Cruze with 963333 miles on it what's constantly overheating and now has either a cracked block or a bonehead gasket. Radio and navigation cause electrical problems to where I had to remove the radio cuz it didn't work anyway to keep it from draining my battery. My opinion of the Chevy Cruze it's a pile of crap!


Don't Buy This Car

I have had this car for two years. The first 6 months I had it where great, but since than it has been the biggest lemon. I have had it in the shop multiple times now for many different issues. My check engine light is always on, and the mechanics cannot figure out why. When I am driving, my locks will go up and down while the car stutters and try's to slow down, when it does this I am unable to accelerate at all. It has stopped working on the highway twice now because of this issue. This is not a good car, you will be spending your money on one issue after the other.


Money Pit

Vehicle handles well when traveling and has good acceleration if you have a good Turbo Engine. Great milage and good for traveling on the interstate and turnpike. However the downside is that there are a lot of Recalls and common complaints on the vehicle of things that needs to be done. Do your homework and weigh out the pros and cons of the vehicle before you purchase one.


This car is awful

The engine light always comes back on. Seriously this car has been a headache since the day we got it. It had about 40,000 miles and it makes me think less of Chevrolet. Hopefully the later gen Cruzes are better because this one is an absolute dog. We've probably spent $5000 in repairs over the last 4 years. 0/10 wouldn't recommend.


In need of a vehicle

The car was not exactly what I wanted, but I needed a vehicle and the car is nice for the need. I hope to continue to work with Lincoln until I get the car of my dreams.


Used dealer lied about engine damage

The vehicle itself is decent, a reasonable value in a small car. Unfortunately there was a cooling problem (with an extended service program) and the previous owner had apparently overheated it and cracked the head. The used dealer lied about the engine being fine, so a lot of expensive engine work resulted. Make sure that the “water inlet fix” has been done and the engine has not been damaged before buying one of these.


Most unreliable car I've ever owned.

This vehicle has been nothing but trouble since day 1. Passenger window never worked, it shuts off the a/c (even if the a/c's not on) says the motor is overheating (it's NOT) and runs the cooling fan all at the same time as having the coolant guage drop to 0.


Nice car but needs a new battery already won't sta

Nice vehicle however haven't had it two weeks and it already needs a new battery I went to start it and it won't over battery is dead. Live in Midwest and it's cold right now but with even purchasing a used car battery should have been replaced.


My favorite of the cars I have owned since 1998

Have Owned this car for over 3 years. Bought certified pre-owned with 21K miles. has had only one electrical problem which was covered under the warranty. I have the Turbo RS version with all the amenities. Its fun stylish and low maintenance. Zippy yet quiet engine and wind noise. This model was refined over years with few changes and that adds to the reliability I have found. Plenty power for a full ride of 4 American size adults. Has highest safety rating given. Would definitely recommend the 2014 Model.


Love it

This is the best car I ever owned great gas mileage and run perfect..... Come with all new brakes and tires all service and inspected has not needed anything
