2012 Cruze lt2 with about 58k. Not sure why but I'm having more issues with my coolant level. I keep adding but seems as if it's just evaporating or getting into the core and also emitting an odor. It's faint but I can smell it. I know this was an issue in regards to coolant and the Cruze before because I read about it. Seems to be an issue and was wondering if it's really a factory defect, will gm cover it?

Have you read through any of this yet?

Antifreeze Smell Thread

Also this from Dr. Ober <GRIN>

Water pump or coolant tank cap. This is a sign of one of these two leaking under pressure. Get a bottle of coolant dye and dump it in your coolant. Then you'll be able to find the leak with a flashlight.

As ChevyGuy added it could also be a pressure leak at the spider coupler on the coolant tank side of the engine block.

on my MY2014 1.6L T the coolant was leaking from the reservoir hose connection. The entire reservoir was replaced under warranty as it is a common fault.
The image on the left is the new one, you can see the brass inside the connection is the obvious diffrerence.

At this point, I think the only fault that GM will cover is a bad water pump. But the good news is that the other faults are do-able for a DIY and not all that expensive.
