Hey all, I see that there are many other threads involving these transmissions on the Chevrolet Cruze. My girlfriend has just purchased a 2012 Cruze LS Auto. In the time of her ownership, it has been to the dealer three times. The vehicle does the current run of the mill things, hard shifts / downshifts, which is really annoying itself. It also tends to "slip". When putting the car into reverse, the car will roll (forward or backwards depending on SLIGHT incline) and bang into gear. Recently I noticed this myself at a Walmart parking lot. I was infront of a shopping cart station. I put the auto into reverse, and it rolled foward and bumped into the station before going into reverse. The service people have NOTCED this on test drive but still say "There is nothing wrong" It shifts horrible, especially compared to my 11' Regal (I know, i know, heavier car, etc) It's at the dealer now and they were going to give it back to her before I called Chevrolet and made a complaint. Then, they changed their tune to "thursday" They told my rep that they can not find anything wrong with it. The rep told me it's their word over mine (ours)
There is something wrong with it, it's apparent. The more I see of all these complaints it's a wonder there is not a class-action lawsuit following this. I work for GM (Assembly plant) and i'm the one that told her to buy GM. I feel horrible as it has been a pain in the butt for her ever since!
Like i said, I know there are other threads - I would like this one to be made sperate because i have not seen this exact issue elsewhere.
Thanks for the help!
