    OK - there have been several threads complaining about the soft feel of the brakes in the Cruze. After having been run off the interstate today by another driver who wasn't paying a bit of attention, I can tell you from personal experience that that soft pedal will stop the car in very short...

    Just recently happened to me twice, so asking if anyone has had this issue. After a cold start around 80F outside temperature, I started backing up from my garage, went to step on my brakes, the car slowed, but didn't stop. I had to apply maximum brake pedal just to get the car to stop. I have a...

    Unfortunately, I posted my first post on the forum was yesterday, and today, I'm posting here. Yesterday driving home in the pouring rain in my 2012 LTZ. I had a message come up "Service Stabilitrack" and the Stabilitrack symbol on the dash lit up. Few seconds later, "Service Traction...

    How to Adjust Rear Drum Brakes This writeup was inspired by this thread: http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/34-1-4l-turbo/6326-brake-catching-sound.html Why do my Cruze's drum brakes need adjusting? The Cruze's drums are not adjusted very well from the factory. I believe the word "horrible"...

    hi everyone...new to cruzetalk. bought a new 2012 1LT. The brakes on the Cruze seem to be a lot softer than what i am use to. I traded in an 09 cobalt on the cruze and the brakes seem much harder on the cobalt than the cruze. some of the reviews of the cruze call out that the brakes are not that...

    I am about to buy a 2012 Cruze 1LT with Allstar, RS, and convenience packages. The only thing I really dislike is the drums in the rear. Anyone upgraded to discs?

    Where does the turbo Cruze get it's vacuum for the brakes.
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have had my cruze eco 7,000 miles. I have had the transmission not engage, hesitation on taking off (of course always happens pulling out into traffic) running rough engine, hard shifting and now I go to use the brakes and nothing happens. This car scares me! It is going to get me killed. And...

    I have a 2011 2Lt with RS package, I have 6,800 miles or so on it. The brakes sometimes squeak, especially in reverse and in the morning. Is this something to worry about?

    When applying the brakes it feels like all the braking is done by the front brakes. I have disk in front and drum in rear. Is this normal or should I have the dealer check this out. My Malibu has disk all around and I don't get ths feeling.

    Hello, I have had a 2011 Cruze LS since November 2010 and have recently been noticing a noise heard toward the end when I'm applying my breaks a few moments before I come to a complete stop. It's like a creek/screetch noise that is heard every other second. It's hard to describe the noise...

    Well, I had some extra time and decided to take a look behind the rear wheels. Check out the pics. 2011 Crystall Red Metallic Cruze LTZ with RS

    Bought my Cruze Eco a couple weeks ago and just the other night while in my garage, I noticed that when I applied the breaks, I could hear a slight hissing sound, like air was being released. I don't know if this indicates a problem or rather is just a small noise, because I can't hear it when...

    Hi. I have a 2011 Cruze LS and of course it has rear drum brakes. Has anybody done a rear disc conversion? If so, how involved is it? I've done this with older cars in the past without problems, just not sure about these newer electronics-based cars, lol.

    Anybody else getting a periodic high pitched hum when the brakes are applied?
  17. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Since Cruze shares most of it's steering/suspension and brakes with other GM cars (Delta and Delta II platforms) I've been looking at possible brake upgrade within the GM family. Looks like the Brembos from Cobalt SS might work and they are pretty cheap too. So getting the calipers, pads and...

    I find the brakes on my 2LT RS just bearly adequate. I though having 4 wheel disk brakes would be a lot better. How are the rear drum brake cars? Any comments please.
  19. Gen1 Service Issues
    Ok, I've got about 4500 miles on the car... they've been all city miles. Last night I start hearing a faint squeak, squeak, squeak as I'm driving along. I manage to isolate it, I think, to the front driver's wheel. After a little bit of driving around it goes away. I threw a couple hard...
