The Cruze is a solid and substantial-feeling compact car. Its taut, steady and controlled ride makes it one of the smoothest of the small sedans. Inside, it's also one of the quietest small sedans we'd tested. Gasoline-powered models have lackluster fuel economy. Inside, the nicely-finished cabin offers roomy front seats. Taller drivers have plenty of space up front, but the Cruze is very tight in the rear.

Engine Cooling

Radiator, cooling fan, antifreeze leaks, water pump, thermostat, overheating.

What Owners Say

Antifreeze leaks

"antifreeze system developed leaks at several hose connections"

Anonymous, NV (2011 Chevrolet Cruze ECO 1.4-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Cracked plastic inlet housing resulted in a slight leak, causing the sweet antifreeze odor after driving - and sometimes in the cabin. Had to replace the whole housing, roughly a $600 repair bill."

John T., CO (2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT 1.4-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"AntifreeSe leaks on two hoses causing overheating"

Anonymous, AB (2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT 1.4-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"A part of the radiator system failed shooting dexcool everywhere"

Anonymous, ID (2011 Chevrolet Cruze ECO 1.4-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Repair shop installed incorrect high pressure coolant hose on first repair causing engine to overheat. On second repair(3days later) correct hose was installed incorrectly causing more leakage and overheating but this time cylinderhead was warped/cracked and needed to be replaced. Dealership(Travers) and repair shop owned by the same person. Go figure."

Anonymous, MO (2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 1.8-L 4 Cyl)

"Coolant outlet housing leaking"

Lee G., IA (2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 1.8-L 4 Cyl)

"more nuisance though loss of coolant caused the car to be overheated twice (this is AFTER the turbocharge incident and so did not cause the turbo problems.) Cause was the use of cheap clamps causing slow leaks. With the 2nd leak, I replaced all single spring clamps with good screw-down constriction clamps. No hoses were bad or replaced - it was all the poor seal from using cheap thin-wire spring clamps."

Anonymous, MO (2011 Chevrolet Cruze)

"It was the second time we had coolant leaks, the first was years ago with the water pump which was covered by the power train warranty. This time was a block where heater connected, smell was evident in the car."

"I was disappointed that my transmission blew and left me stranded in rush hour traffic just before it hit 100,000 miles. I had let my dad drive it for a short time and thankfully he took out a supplemental insurance policy. Had he not done that I might have ended up getting another car as the cost to fix it was equal or close to what the car was worth. I’ve always noticed small issues with the transmission ( such as it having a hard time accelerating after being stopped at a red light.) also, im getting ready to move and have a few extra items in my car right now including a tv. With this extra weight the car goes through a lot more gas than it usually does. I can’t imagine this would be a good car for a family. If I had to do it again I’d buy a Honda or a basic sedan that was more reliable and had a more powerful engine"

Sensors (includes O2 or oxygen sensor)

"Sensors failed (engine crank sensor, EGR sensor, and a couple others by the time I was done) and oil recirculation tube cracked during servicing or maybe before, and recommended repair is to replace the whole sensor cover and module--it had a seal that failed and leaked oil all over the engine and ruined some of the sensors, one of them twice. GM knows that the whole module cover and sensor kit needs replacing (over $800 kit plus labor) but has not recalled it, only issued a TSB."

Normal routine brake wear

"Part of early brake replacement could have been a result of my setting the parking brake probably more than needed while vehicle is parked at very slight angle rather than completely flat surface, and driving with it on for short distance before I notice it is on."

Anonymous, (2011 Chevrolet Cruze LT 1.4-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Premature brake wear

"Brakes normally go for 90k miles, but I admit I do like to use the parking brake and sometimes drive 100m or so before taking it down. Was told brakes needed replacement after only 50k miles, said they had deteriorated in an aging vehicle. I went ahead with it since I trusted them, had the cash flow, and wanted them to stay in biz through the pandemic even if it was a bit premature. Who wants to get in an argument over this? Not worth it, and they were likely being honest about it, so I decided to ask a few questions and then just be reasonable rather than argumentative."
