Contact GM - either the GM rep here on CruzeTalk via PM or by phone. It's very possible the recirc control isn't working and it won't throw a code. Dealerships that don't look beyond a code should be shuttered.
You are just too logical to expect that if it is actually on, than the switch and display should reflect it.Yes, lowest click on the temp dial is auto recirculate and this is by design. Lets them undersize the AC for max fuel economy. Run it on fan speed one and fiddle with the temp knob and listen just behind the glove box. One click up for "fresh air".
The Camaro does the same thing. I think it should light up the recirculate light like our other car does.

Thanks for this tip. I could never figure out if my recirc button was working or not so I tried it this morning. It works.When you drive on the highway and the circulate mode is "off" and your fan is "off" does air blow into the car anyway? If not circulate mode is stuck on.
I would like to help you get this issue diagnosed and resolved. I am so sorry that you are dealing with this frustrating concern. If you would like for me to open a service request for you could you please send me a private message? I will need your VIN, current mileage, full name, phone number and the name of the dealership that you took your Cruze to. I will do everything that I can to assist you in getting this resolved.
By the way I just got back from Orange County, I was in San Clemente and I have to say it is a VERY beautiful place.
I look forward to hearing from you.
