Chevrolet Cruze Owners Manual: Steering

Electric Power Steering

The vehicle has electric power steering. It does not have power steering fluid. Regular maintenance is not required.

If power steering assist is lost due to a system malfunction, the vehicle can be steered, but may require increased effort. See your dealer if there is a problem.

If the steering wheel is turned until it reaches the end of its travel and is held against that position for an extended period of time, power steering assist may be reduced.

Normal use of the power steering assist should return when the system cools down.

Curve Tips

  Take curves at a reasonable speed.

Reduce speed before entering a curve.

Maintain a reasonable steady speed through the curve.

Wait until the vehicle is out of the curve before accelerating gently into the straightaway.

Steering in Emergencies

  There are some situations when steering around a problem may be more effective than braking.

  Holding both sides of the steering wheel allows you to turn 180 degrees without removing a hand.

  The Antilock Brake System (ABS) allows steering while braking.
