Great.... I bought my brand new 2nd gen cruze this March and I felt my steering wheel lately had a clunking, clicking noise. So took it to the dealer and got a call back they need to replace the rack and pinion. I think this is way too early to go bad at 15.000 miles ! Very disappointed.

I've got loss of heat from all sources heater related and funky acting daylights. 2 months and 1600 miles.

A couple have posted about loss of piston. 1 went at 7k miles, the other made it to 28k.

Crap happens. To us lucky few.

First we've heard of steering rack replacement on a Gen 2.

It wasn't uncommon in the early years of Gen 1, as it would "stick" when driving in a straight line.

Steering rack stuff is an extremely common issue throughout a lot of gm cars/trucks honestly, so not surprised to hear of one going bad. It's good it went bad early to be replaced under B2B warranty.

Well I got my car back , clunk noise fixed after they replaced the rack and pinion but I rode to work and I noticed when I’m driving straight the steering wheel is off center like 5-10 degrees to the right. I will call them in the morning to fix it. I hope something easy to adjust.

There's a steering angle sensor on electric power steering systems that needs to be reset when an alignment is done. The dealer tech/alignment tech SHOULD know this, but I've received mine back with the wheel crooked too...
