2013 Chevrolet CRUZE Power Train Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1053237

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemVehicle was backed out of a driveway. Driver shifted from reverse to drive. Car moved forward about 20 feet and suddenly slowed to a stop. Engine power remained on. Clicking noise was heard from the right front side. Clicking noise continued in reverse, drive, or park shifter positions. Car would not move under its own power in either direction. We pushed car to side of road in neutral and called onstar this is the driveshaft recall issue on 2013-14 cruze with 1. 4 turbo engines. I write because if this had happened on an interstate or in heavy traffic the consequences could have been much more dire. This car is almost 1 year old and has only 3000 miles on it. This defect is as serious as the ignition switch problem. There are 170000 of these cars out there with this same potential issue. When i spoke with gm they initially said that there was no recall on my vehicle and that i should take it to a dealer for service. When i insisted that there was a power train related recall on the car they then said that indeed there was a recall and that i could get it towed to a gm dealer. My only reason for writing nhtsa is to hopefully elevate this issue to one of more immediate importance. I have not yet received any notice from gm about this issue, and if it weren't for the extensive media coverage would probably still not know of this very serious issue.
