    That is a Butcher job. Perhaps we should have a forum with photos and dealer names as to who will be the best GM saw hacker winner of the Chevy Cruze.

    LOL.

    Still waiting for the redesign. If there is ever going to be one.

    I told the dealer not to hack mine the last time I was in there for a warranty issue. They didn't, and made me sign something taking the liability off them. Perfectly fair, IMO.

    Yep, the build out for the 2012 was on 8/7.

    I have a horrible hack job too, and I don't know what dealer to blame it on.

    This is something that will become a non-issue in about a year. All of the older Cruzes will have been modified, and production from here foward will not have the shield.

    Hey blame that one on GM (Chevy) They do not want to pay anyone to do anything right.I think they should have sent out redesigned parts for the cars myself. You will see them have a big problem as the economy inproves.They will have a tough time to get anyone to work for them.It has turned into a complete joke there times on repairs.There day is comeing !

    Bought mine with it pre-cut. Not a bad job.

    Why can't GM offer (at no cost i might add) a replacement shield to those cars that had theirs butchered? A shield is still a good Idea, they just need to perforate it to allow spills to drip through.

    Wow that "repair" is an embarrassing joke... I just had mine done a week ago with my oil change, and now I'm wishing I would have seen this thread beforehand. I have yet to look at my shield, but now that is the first thing I'm going to do when I leave work today.

    I'm hoping it doesn't look like a 4 year old did it, because my father is the GM at the store where I purchase and service my cars and I'd rather not have to be unsatisfied with the level of service I've recieved. Never have been before, but with GM handling recalls this way, what can you expect?!

    Also, Haven't been on the forum in a LONG time, so I have a lot of catching up to do!

    I have so far refused to have mine done and told the dealer I do my own oil changes and clean up after myself if needed. So now they cut the shield,, so are they saying it s no longer needed? LOL. Wasn t it designed to be there for a reason? Now the reason is gone? They just dont care and think people are dumb. Now water and salt can get to areas which were first designed to be covered.

    I was told that if it isn't done it could possibly void the warranty in the case of fire. I change my own oil and do it cleanly but I didn't want to give them any ammo. My wife relies on this car too much.
