According to Hagens Berman, Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel vehicles fail federal emissions standards:

  • Highway conditions: vehicles emit nitrogen oxides (NOx) at up to eight times the federal standard
  • Stop-and-go conditions: vehicles emit nitrogen oxides (NOx) at up to 13.8 times the federal standard
  • Below 50°F & above 85°F: emissions controls shut down completely

Your consumer rights against chevy

Chevy marketed the Cruze diesel as a clean option, tacking on thousands of dollars, compared to similar gasoline models, but according to news, Chevy misled the public and sought to evade emissions testing. We believe consumers deserve their money's worth from an honest company. Chevy hasn't been honest, and thousands of vehicle owners paid far too much for their Chevy Cruze.
