That "crash on exit"...
So, having the same problem with "only crash when exiting the game". I have tried tweaking some in-game setting and playing with window compatibility mode.

So far, if I set the compatibility to win 7 and making sure the game set as admin, the game runs fine without any crash when exiting. But somehow, I found a bug that I can't take any screenshot when pressing F12 or PrintScr. Setting it back to default without any compatibility mode fix this, but then the game again will crash on exit.

Anyone have the same problem like this?

PS: Also, what is wrong with the game trying to put Yakisoba sign on every drug stores?!

Same here. Re-install only fixed it temporarily.

Several times I have had crashes/hangs when I try to save. The save is actually fine but I have to kill the game from the task manager. Is this what you refer to ?

Do you see the crash after saving and chosing "Exit to desktop" ?

I've had the crash-on-exit error from the beginning, running Win7 64x. Haven't really messed with compatibilities etc. because it's a minor thing.

Zitrax, that sounds awful :(

Edit: Have you tried quick saving via F1?

No, but I'll try using F1 next time.

probably some error in a mod somewhere.

I also have this issue and I'm running vanilla C:S. Both quitting to desktop and quitting to the menu before exiting will cause this. Running Win7.

Running Vanilla - zero mods or DLC - Win 7 64bit. Crash on exit. Playing though the game is rock solid. Love it so far.

Win7 x64 fairly clean build at Xmas.
Vanilla game install via Steam.
No issues in-game or with save files, but every time I exit it reports "cities.exe has stopped responding" and eventually the dialog changes to a "close program" option.
Happens regardless of whether I quit to menu or quit to desktop
Not affecting the game, but isn't closing down gracefully.

Same on a vanilla install of Windows 7 both with updates and without. Both video cards are AMDs if that makes any difference. I've also noticed hat it does not crash on OS X 10.10 at all.

the crash doesnt effect anything though just close the window.

It also crashes sometimes when I exit the game, never crashed while playing. Windows 8.1, I never used quicksaves.

Before Titanfall died a horrible death, it used to do this as well. It wouldn't crash any other time for me, just when closing the game to desktop. This game does the same. Not an issue really, just slightly annoying.

Yes, I also think this is just a minor issue, since my save data is still safe and works fine. It just very annoying for me. I just hope this, and the bug with the traffic one, is one of the priority list for the developer to fix.
