2012 CHEVROLET CRUZE Defect Investigation Open 2012/03/28 - Close 2012/07/19 NHTSA #: PE12010
NHTSA Recall #: 12V288000
ENGINE: In a June 21, 2012 letter to NHTSA, General Motors LLC. (GM) submitted a Defect Information Report (DIR) identifying a defect in approximately 413,148 model year (MY) 2011 through 2012 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles manufactured from October 2, 2009 through May 31, 2012 (Recall 12V-288). According to GM, engine oil change procedures can result in spilling or dripping of oil on the engine shield.Also, manual transmission vehicles with a completely worn clutch may cause hydraulic fluid to be expelled from the clutch housing vent hole.If oil, debris or the burning hydraulic fluid contacts hot engine or exhaust system surfaces, and the engine shield, the shield may ignite and burn, leading to a possible engine compartment or vehicle fire.GM and its engine shield supplier, Hanwha, modified the engine shield to address factors that may contribute to engine compartment fire. The redesigned shields were completely implemented in production vehicles by June 2012.The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) analyzed complaint data provided by GM as well as complaints submitted to ODI from consumers. In total, there were 25 unique Chevrolet Cruze reports indicating hot surface ignition due to engine oil or hydraulic fluid contacting hot manifold, exhaust surfaces and the engine shield.Four additional fires were identified that resulted from other or unknown causes, including 1 attributed to a missing oil filler cap.Three fires of unknown cause all involved vehicles equipped with 1.4L L4 turbocharged engines.ODI will continue to monitor field experience in Cruze vehicles equipped with that engine.Owners of the recalled vehicles are notified to take their vehicle to a GM dealer, who will modify the engine shield to prevent oil fluids from contacting the shield.Also, on vehicles with a manual transmission, dealers are to apply a protective tape to the electronic power steering wire harness to prevent any incidents related to this issue. This preliminary evaluation is closed.The ODI reports cited above can be viewed at www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/complaints under the following identification numbers (ODI Nos.): 10456338, 10453754, 10450556, 10446718.

i will note that some of these were identified by GM. the engine fire problem had more to do with poor service by mechanics who were sloppy in their work and GM had the call back to prevent any further problems.

I will add to this that i have had my car for over a year and HAD NO ISSUES WITH IT, it is running perfectly for the last 11,200 miles and only goes in for oil change and tire rotation. For any buyers looking at this thread understand this is a small sample of people.


Thank you for posting this so people have a easy place to see if any problems are occurring

And other than an attempt to scare off potential Cruze buyers - your point is ???

Other than a couple of major recalls most Cruzen will never have any of these issues. All car manufacturers have hundreds of TSBs for their vehicles. Many of them only apply to a handful of cars. My Pontiac Montana even had a one vehicle TSB filed.

By the way you missed the complaint from one idiot who decided they couldn't see well enough during a test drive so they filed a NHTSA complaint about visibility.

For everyone - here's the gist of my reply to 70AARCUDA and I do appreciate the PM.

TSBs exist because the manufacturing process for a car is not perfect. What we cannot tell from most TSBs is how many cars are potentially impacted. In some cases even the car manufacturer may not know. Even if every single component in a car is manufactured and installed within engineering specs, it is still possible for a problem to occur. This is because many of these specs have overlap areas. A perfect example of this is the fuel rails rubbing against the firewall. Both are probably located within the engineering specs for the car but the specs themselves overlap just enough that a very small number of cars will have this issue. In addition, as soon as a GM engineer gets involved a TSB is filed with the NHTSA documenting both the symptoms and the solution. Two years after the TSB for my Montana was filed it still had my Montana's VIN number associated with it, which is how I know it was a single vehicle TSB. The problem descripton and solution on my paperwork matched word for word what was in the TSB.

===================
Not in my reply and why I questioned the purpose of posting these TSBs.

The NHTSA database is useful for helping resolve issues. The problem is that cars are probably the most complex single piece of consumer technology most of us will ever have to deal with and self diagnosis using this repository is somewhat like self diagnosis of medical issues; problematic at best and outright dangerous at worst. Your best solution is to find a good dealership service department and develop a good working relationship with your service adviser and his boss. Then if you have an issue that's perplexing them they'll be more willing to listen to what you find on-line and look further into the results of your research.

No! I had no intention in preventing future or current owners of the Cruze!

I own a Cruze, and have since Feb.2012, with no incidents! Everything works the way it's suppose to, a truly great car, I love my CruzeR, I highly recommend it!

My intention here was to provide a refrence list for owners that may have a quirk or two with there car and that GM is capable of resolving their issues!

No offence was meant in posting this list! Sorry if it was!

This looks very strange to me. We have a power steering pump with oil inside. Something is very wrong with this one.I thought we have electric/cable assist power steering.

That is a strange TSB for a electrically controlled power steering. However, the steering gear needs some lubricant so I suspect there is a small oil reservoir inside the power steering system and this is what the TSB is referring to.

I cant hold my tongue anymore and im going to make this clear to everyone thats saying this BS...I read this line of crap that shows the list of problems with the cruze...If its from GM themself thats one thing because they obviously know whats going on since they were the ones that made the car. However. Ive said it before and will say it again..Not every car is gonna be perfect, so everyone needs to get that out of their thick heads right now because it probably wont ever happen. I hear alot of these so called "good cars" that apparently ford, dodge, toyota and nissan make and im tired of seeing it and hearing it. No other company is better than another. GM to me is a really good company...better than ford and dodge by a long shot. I know gm isnt perfect and neither is anyone else, but to me gm has alot more success than everyone else has had. Ive had my cruze LT for 8 months now with 8K on it... NO ISSUES at all other than a faulty wheel stud. Went ahead and replaced all 20..which wasnt a big deal. It was easy. So my point here is...since there is sooo much drama and **** talking on here about the cruze and GM, then get rid of ur car and be done with it. All of us proud gm owners love our cars and dont seem to be having any issues with them and here "you" are ruining everything that has to do with us and our cars by putting ur 2 cents in that we dont really care to hear. Atleast i dont. Im not trying to be an ******* but this pisses me off. Theres a fine line between discussing an issue about a car and discussing problems with a car that includes bad comments that leads to other crap that dont need to be said on here.With me theres also a fine line between yankin my chain and straight up pissing me off and your straight up pissing me off. I get sick of seeing this **** on here and ive had it. The reason why i make this situation into what it is is because im passionate for chevrolet and GM because of everything they do for people. They dont just build cars...its more than that with GM. Their apart of so many cancer associations and charities to help others in need. So they earn the respect from customers like me because of everything they do. One in particular im proud of is the Breast Cncer Research Foundation. Thats a big thing to be sponsoring. So i really thank GM/Chevrolet for that.Now you have an idea why im a loyal customer to GM and Chevrolet. Next thing i see on here that is related to bashing GM, i will and am reporting you to The administrator a.k.a XtremeRevolution or another moderator. Im making this clear to you.So please stop this nonsense.

You gotta read NHTSA complaints pretty closely. My fav is the one where the author was complaining to NHTSA that Progressive's Snap Shot was forcing them to drive on their highway commute at 30 mph, because the rubber banding of traffic during drive time was forcing them into too many hard braking events. The only way they could avoid the hard braking was to drive at 30 mph and that caused dangerous backups and irate passing drivers. It seems they were blaming the insurance company and not themselves for their stupidity.

Wow, who put a cockle-burr in your shorts?

The OP merely provided NHSTA information; others, myself included, have strayed, but the OP isn't to be blamed for our wanderings!
I just feel that this is a slap in the face to 95% of Cruze owners who have had 0 issues! ;)

I considered deleting or locking this thread. However, anyone with a few minutes can search Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to get these TSBs. They are public record. I am a firm believer in keeping the truth out there, but it must also be put into correct context. If not in the correct context even truth is nothing more than propaganda. Thus my answers explaining just what TSBs are and how even the best made cars can have random problems. Others also pointed out the fact that other car makers have problems as well.

...let's see, 100% of the 400K+ 2011-2012 Cruzes were recalled. That's certainly not 0 issues.
Actually the recall was the result of 25 confirmed fires. The heavy hand of the US legal system created this recall.

Maybe recalled but for a problem most don't have. Recalled because more than a few had the issue. We're not going to agree here, so I am stepping out of this debate :)

Wow ... I merely thought the original post was simply to bring to people's attention some of the POTENTIAL issues they MIGHT have with their vehicles, and not so much to sway prospective buyers from purchasing a Cruze if they so choose to or "bash" anyone or any car. Perhaps the OP should have started off with a "disclaimer" stating that he was trying to be HELPFUL with this information.

It's my opinion, chevycruze2012, that you were a little heavy on the post you put up. What if someone were to say they were offended by what YOU said in your post? I didn't see the OP as bashing anything at all. I'm actually thankful for the information, because that means someone else took the time to do the research and bring things to my attention that I might have never known existed! Since when has being educated on something and having knowledge about it ever been a bad thing? Especially when it comes to probably the 2nd most costly thing most of us will ever have next to buying a home? If there were recalls for your house, or something inside your house like a washer or dryer, maybe even the A/C system, wouldn't you like to know about them even IF you'd had no problems? LIGHTEN UP MAN!

I'm glad that I now have knowledge that someone else looked up for me :) ! I'm a proud owner of a 2012 Eco 6MT and have had only one or 2 of the problems others here have listed, but I became informed on THIS SITE with information from people like the OP! Even if I haven't had problems, it Doesn't mean it might not ever happen, and having KNOWLEDGE about the possibilities is greatly appreciated.

Some people apparently get a lil butt-hurt too easily and swing that pendulum way too far in the other direction, without really thinking about what the intent of the original post was ... INFORMATIONAL.

If you wanted to call the OP bashing ... well that'd be just as absurd as me saying something like, "I'm so tired of hearing about all these people who have had zero problems with their Cruzes, and it's pissing me off! Go brag about your good fortune somewhere else because I'm tired of hearing about it here."

I mean seriously ... does that mean the NHTSA is bashing every single car out on the roads today?

I EXPECT to get exactly the kind of information from this website that the OP posted, which is WHY I joined it! I WANT to be informed by people with real world experiences ... good or bad!

REALLY people, or should I say chevycruze2012, take it down a notch or 2! It's not as if cruzemeister was posting on here again!

True, but there are a few on here that all they do is like the negative posts and bash the cruze. Luckily, as they can do that, we can stick up for it. Gotta love freedom.
