The people at BrakeMax say their computers show GM no longer makes the gearshift knob for the 2012 Cruze. Mine is breaking and I would like to replace it. Is this true, that GM is no longer making certain parts for a car that is only five years old? I can't be the only one whose knob is breaking and should be replaced. Quick look on their computers at salvage parts did not come up with anything either.

I see many on eBay, it just threads on, so you can pretty much get any one you prefer that fits.

I ordered the one on ebay, did not come with threads to screw on, and I did not want to destroy the current one getting it off only to find I could not put on the new knob.

It's good to know I'm not the only one with this issue on the 2012. The soft plastic on shift knob started getting loose and flaking off. The same thing is happening to my steering wheel too! The shift knob plastic finally cracked and I couldn't deal with it any more. I couldn't find a way to unscrew it, so I just ripped off the soft plastic and found there is a decent hard plastic under it. It doesn't look that bad now and i'm not getting flakes of plastic on my hand every time I touch it :).
