Sooooooo. You are mad at a car company for a blown speaker....???
I get it that it sucks but I have had zero issues with my Cruze. I treat it well. A subwoofer is usually the first thing to go on most systems because they generally take the most power and are generally the first things to get abused. Most people thing a good stereo has an astronomical amount of bass so they tend to push it hard. It could have been blown before you got it and worsened as time went on until it became so apparent especially since she listens to talk radio and would never get the drivers to move more than 10%. Just out of curiosity how much did you spend on the pair?this is just one failure amongst a sea of many that should have never occurred and didn't occur due to neglect or abuse. pos car.
I went back and reread his post and you're right.Everyone is assuming the 12 months is how long OP has owned the car. OP joined CruzeTalk in Oct 2011 so I suspect the car itself started having issues 12 months ago and that he is the first owner.
What else went wrong with your 2012 Cruze LTZ?New pair of speaks was 70 bucks and an hour of my time. It's not the speakers making me upset, it's that everything that can go wrong does go wrong with these cars and I'm not the only one. She never ever listens to the stereo at loud levels so this one dumbfounded me.... meanwhile I abuse the **** out of the harmon/Karman logic7 in the bimmer and it keeps on working albeit 4 yrs older with twice the mileage 3x the horsepower 4x the features and complexity... you see where I'm going with this
I don't know. Maybe but I have to call BS. I'll give you the automatic climate control is a little wonky but it is not that big of a deal. I have no idea what the coil pack is but what ever it is I haven't had a issue in 71,200 miles.Waterpump 4x, usb/SD reader for nav, recalls, speakers, turbo, programming issues for auto hvac... no valve cover or coil pack yet... waiting on those
The only thing I can think of blowing the speakers with the pioneer package is using a square audio wave for an extended period of time. This doesn't just happen.Heres the thing the items he mention the speakers, the waste gate pin sounds more like employees at the factory causing this. I hate to say it some don't care and could care less if they damaged a car. I had a 2002 grandprix that was missing 2 bolts for the exhaust and the bumper had a gap because the bolt was not tighten. This is not Gm's fault but the employee.
No way did pin bend on its own, and with it you having the Pioneer system I doubt the speakers blown probably bad originally but got worse over time. The pioneer probably can't blow those speakers anyway.
How long since your last water pump? GM has redesigned it twice now and hopefully the current design won't develop leaks as it ages.Waterpump 4x, usb/SD reader for nav, recalls, speakers, turbo, programming issues for auto hvac... no valve cover or coil pack yet... waiting on those
