    where is everyone noticing the leak? I see I'm losing some and I thought it might be the lower radiator hose since i see it on it. However it could be from the belt throwing it there. I also notice it near the frame by the air conditioner compressor and lightly sprayed on the radiator which means its leaking on the belt. Its not leaking a lot but seems to be getting worse.

    cruze2011white,
    Have you had a chance to take your Cruze into your dealer? If you have not I would recommend that you have them look into this for you. Please keep me posted on and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
    Thank you,
    Stacy Chevrolet Customer Service

    What color? Red is engine coolant. Green is A/C coolant. If it's red get it in immediately. If green schedule at your convenience. In either case get it in.

    I think you're correct. In either case, orange or red is an immediate trip to the dealer. Green and blue (washer fluid) are the only leak colors that don't require an immediate trip to the dealership.

    My fiance noticed a spot on my garage floor and told me about it. I was out of town the last few days and was able to finally get my car to the dealership that services it. They just sent me a text telling me "water pump starting to leak. Pump is ordered. Will install tomorrow AM"
    They also told me it was covered under the powertrain warranty.

    this is the first mechanical issue I've had. I have just over 50k miles on my 2011 2LT.
    spacedout and obermd like this.

They laughed off the coolant reservoir vent repair and stated there have been a rash of water pump leaking complaints. Next thing I know there was a loaner just outside the waiting area with my name on it. Said my pump was leaking more than most.
    Interesting that my Eco - also built 2/11 - now with 22,000 miles - had a water pump failure this week.
    This comes on the heels of last month's transmission removal for repair (conv pump seal leak) .
    And 3 recalls previously.

    I will say that Hare Chevrolet in Noblesville, Indiana is BY FAR the best store I've ever dealt with, they are super.
    But I really hadn't planned on being on a first name basis with the service writers, LOL.

    It's not a bad thing to be on a first name basis with the service advisors and manager. You tend to get better service because you not just a phone number.
