Chevrolet Cruze in Iowa, United States

29000 mi   Trunk rods became loose and rattled while driving down the road. Became a nasty vibration until the clips were replaced that held them up. 
29000   Musty smell when run AC. Found mold growing in the AC lines, had to flush the system and then replace the cabin air filter. They also installed a blow by device which seems to be working because the smell is completely gone. 
37000   AC System was completely rebuilt along with the heater core. Mold was found to be growing in the system again, so this was the next step since they had already flushed the system with a bleach compound previously.

10000 mi   electric seat motor malfunctioned, track replaced 
Chevrolet Cruze in Illinois, United States
Aug 2011 - Jun 2014
1000 mi   9 speaker premium Pioneer sound system is defective. All sound comes from the front of the vehicle. As you try to fade and balance the sound towards the rear all you do is loose volume. Bass must be set low to avoid vibration from rear. 
4000   Pioneer 9 speaker premium sound system still not working right.New dealer agrees but GM tech won't give him a fix. GM customer service was a dead end and they closed the case as customer very disatified check back in 6 months if recalled? 
5000   Red insert for RS emblem peeling off. Steering wheel squeaks. Hi speed causes whistle thru air conditioning system. 
8000   Gas cap would not click when closed. Dealer replaced. Seats uncomfortable on longer runs. Sore back. Doesn't seem like there is enough cushion. Dealer said you got the RS Sport version which gives you a harder seat.I don't know about that. Took car for test ride (this is the second time) and could not replicate whistle noise. It usually happens at about 40 to 50 mph after about 10 miles with the air conditioning on. tried changing settings and adjusting vents with no luck. Upgrade Pioneer 9 speaker premium sound system is junk. After 2 years still no recall. This is one big GM engineering mistake that is being swept under the rug. They should be ashamed to put this product in one of their cars. 
10000   Silver plastic trim on face of steering wheel broke off at lowest end or wheel pulling away from wheel when you grabbed it in the act of steering. When changing gears drive to reverse or vice versa car rolls 6" opposite of what you shifted before engaging gear requested. 
11000   Water pump blew. It was replaced.
