Have you talked to GM Corporate about this? They may want to see the service records as well.

PI0721A Coolant leak from Thermostat housing, The leak may be caused by either the thermostat housing to cylinder head seal not being squarely aligned to the cylinder head or the water outlet seal to the thermostat housing not being squarely aligned to the thermostat housing.

or

PI0740B Smell an engine coolant type odor inside of the vehicle passenger compartment.


This odor may be caused by coolant vapor collecting under the hood. This vapor may be coming from the coolant reservoir overflow and entering the passenger compartment through small gaps in the hood to plenum seal.


The odor may also be caused by the grease used during the assembly of the HVAC case.

Haven’t had my housing leak once since I’ve owned mine. I’m at 140k miles now.

Yes, it is a lemon. I went through lemon Law and got all my money that the car was worth. This car put me through hell. I would never recommend a Chevy to anyone. American cars aren’t worth it.

If you supposedly returned your Cruze, why are you here? This is not a GM website.

That answer wasn’t to help you, but hard working people who put their money into crappy things that they rely on.

I never knew giving someone the answer to help them was the wrong thing to do. The question is why are you here. To lie to these people?

This is a forum about the Chevy Cruze and how to repair it and how to enjoy it. We have no need for trolls and others that just want to stir discontent for no purpose. We prefer constructive criticism and embrace those willing to help others. Unfortunately what you consider help, isn't.
