Are you sure he keyed your VIN in correctly? I'd PM the VIN to Chevy Customer Care and ask them for a build sheet. The Volt has a Bose Premium Sound System as an option, but the Cruze does not.
It's a parts catalog error that rpo is predominantly bose in other vehicles. Rest assured you have a pioneer systemSo, I was at the dealership today and I asked the parts manager if he had any details and specs on the Pioneer Premium sound system in my new 2014 Cruze. He looked up my Cruze by the VIN number and said it doesn't have a Pioneer sound system, but it has a Bose sound system. He printed a sheet with all the RPO codes for my Cruze, and here is what it says:
UQA - SPEAKER SYSTEM PREMIUM PERFORMANCE ENHANCED AUDIO 'BOSE' PREMIUM ENHANCED AUDIO SPEAKER SYSTEM (UQA)
I told him it was the Pioneer system and it even says Pioneer on the speakers, but he said that it was definitely a Bose system according to the RPO codes.
Could this be true, or is there something strange in the computer?
Also, as a side note, I told a sales guy that I didn't like how it sounded and he adjusted the tone for me. It sounds much better at his settings than where I had it. He set it at: T 9, M 1, B 4, Fade 0. You can see if you like it.
I was able to look up that RPO code in our system. It states, UQA- Audio system feature, Pioneer premium 9-speaker system. If you would like for us to send you a copy of your build sheet as well, please do not hesitate to reach out via private message. Be sure to include your VIN and email address.

I think this is a matter of perspective on what you think the system should be. I have the Pioneer system in mine and I really like it. But I am not expecting miracles from a cheap system. Sounds just fine to me.The pioneer sucks and I have had it more than a year now and if it was Bose you could call it Blows.
Same all I did was replace the fronts with components and rear with coaxial and added a sub front a cobalt sound is 100% better wherever you sit in their car. Thinking of adding a speaker amp one of these daysWell put . Now all I did is pulled the OEM speakers in the front out . Replacing with quality components . Added a decent sub and amp in the trunk and Wallah sound quality . The wiring for the amp was the toughest part . Piece of cake for most of us audiophiles whom like to dabble with such projects . Total cost for me 200.00 $$ or so .. including the free Subs that were gifted to me from my younger brother .
Be cool stay cozy !!
