I leased my 2014 Chevy Cruze and though I think it's a great basic car it has had a major problem since I bought it. Every 4-6 months the car just shuts down and especially during dangerous times on the highway. It was reported to GM and it has been to the dealer again and currently it's back in there again. Each time it shut off it was with no warning and no check engine light. So it leaves no codes and it just starts right back up and won't do again for a few months. So ridiculous this thing. If it wasn't for this stupidity I would have bought the car for my daughter. The car is dangerous and the dealer can't fix something they say has no issues when they check it. They said they called GM and that they have no information on this happening with any other vehicle. Good thing it's a lease and will he returned soon. I've been a GM guy all my life but looks like it might be over. Has anyone had this problem?

Have you had the negative battery cable replaced?

 

It is a known problem with earlier US-built Cruzen, and it's the first thing I would replace.

Yes it was replaced and it still did it a couple months later! I was deployed at the time and I am rather aggravated about it putting my family in danger. It finally happened to me it gives no warning or check engine light. Good thing this car is a lease I feel bad for the next person to get this car.

If the shut down does not leave a fault code it is getting the system control by surprise, there is no faulty part that first malfunctions and the system control recognise it.

 

I had a similar problem with another car, eventually I put few facts together and it was the fuel pick up. When the tank was less that a quarter full and turning  right the engine stalled. The reason was that the fuel pump sucked air instead of fuel. 

 

If the system does not store a fault code it is waste of time taking it to a repairer, they will not be able to find a fault that has left no traces. You have to monitor and take note of fuel level, driving conditions and so on until you find a common factor.

Good point Cruze Fanatic. Look for a fault that the the diagnostic system would not pick up. An intermittent fuel starvation issue would fit that criteria. A good place to start on this one might be to keep the tank topped off for a while and see if the problem reoccurs. If not then the low fuel starvation issue could very well be the problem.
