I have a letter from GM regarding my 2012 Chevy Cruze that may be of interest to this thread:

"This letter is intended to make you aware that dome 2012 model year Chevrolet Cruze wehicles may have a condition where the negative battery cable terminal clamp may have insufficient crimp at the battery negative terminal. Over time the interal resistance increases and vehicle electrical systems do not receive adequate power.

With this condition, the following effects are possible: the Radio/HVAC Display may turn off and on; the ABS, STS, Service Stabilitrac and Steering vehicle messages may come on and off; the turn signal sound may not be heard; "Battery Saver Active" and "Service Steering" may display in the DIC; and the interior and exterior lighting may flicker. Power steering assist may also be lost."

All because the negative terminal at the battery is not tightly connected.
