    New to the Cruze'n Life ;O)

    HI All. Just picked up my first Cruze about a week and a half ago. Super excited. Always liked the car just never quite found the right deal to pull the trigger on. I bought an 11 ECO Manual. Black Granite Metallic and for the 60 miles or so that I have driven it, I think I gonna love it. I have driven it much because I bought it with "Issues". LOL The PO had put New Turbo, Valve Cover, Intake, PCV Corrugated tube, Plugs, and Coil Assembly chasing a low power/oil consumption problem. He got tire of it and offed it pretty reasonable. I got it home and ran compression on it and found it to be a bit lower than spec. Pulled the head and the pistons and found all 4 to have cracked ring lands between the compression rings. Just got her all back together yesterday. While I had it apart I put one of Extreme's PCV kits on and knocked out the intake runner dams. Went for a 15 mile test drive and it seams like a pretty happy car.

    Anyway. Glad to be a part of the Cruze community. And thanks to all who post there issue and fixes.
