The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze that owner Farah Mocquais bought for commuting to work hasn't achieved the fuel economy ratings that the Canadian arm of General Motors advertised, CBC News reports, and the couple is accusing GM Canada of misleading them. Instead of burning 5.5 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers on the highway, which GM Canada advertises for the 1.4-liter Cruze, she and her husband, Pierre-Yves, have struggled to use any less than 7.9 liters of gas per 100 km of highway driving.

According to a report from the Detroit Free Press, General Motors is getting ready to recall around 293,000 Chevrolet Cruze models due to an issue with the power-assisted brakes. On 2011 and 2012 model year Cruze models equipped with the 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and the six-speed automatic transmission (a combination that excludes the Cruze Eco), the brake booster can fail, making it harder for drivers to stop, requiring more braking effort than expected.
