"Suppose you've heard the news about the production halt of the Cruze already. Supposedly the front struts make a noise at 10-15mph that sounds like popcorn being popped. It's just not the Cruze but also the Buick, Volt, Sonic, Malibu and a few others. Doesn't show up until after the car has been driven 5-10 miles. Engineers are working on it as is the supplier. Not sure but it is the same company that makes Monroe shocks and struts."

Above was from a good friend in the plant. Was unsure where to post the above information from the Lordstown Plant.... It fits in Suspension and Service. I was not allowed to post in Cruze News section...

Hopefully this will be resolved soon and production will resume. Those that recently purchased will surely encounter this minor issue.

From MONROE SHOCKS & STRUTS :: Original Equipment, it's probably Tenneco.

Any indication of how far back the problem may go? At what mileage it shows up? I'm at 6K miles and have never experienced anything like this...

I wonder if they'll offer a fix to the people who have already bought cars or just change the parts for the cars still in production.
I just had mine in for that and they basically did nothing, but I'll wait for the recall/TSB
