    I have a 2012 lt standard transmission with 87,000 miles. I have changed the brake pads and rotors and drum on all 4 wheels. I had a problem with a low squeaking noise when braking that now has turned into a knocking noise on the passenger rear wheel. Not sure where to start. You only hear it at...

    I am having a hard time tracking down a popping sound from my front driver side wheel area, and reading a lot that sounds similar but nothing that's fixed it yet. The sound only happens when the brakes are warmed up (after a hand full of miles), and applying brakes. If I let off, the sound...

    I have the PAC installed without the 12 volt and remote wire connected. Whenever I press the brakes the speakers buzz, whenever I have the automatic lights on it buzzes. As soon as I stop braking or turn the automatic lights off it stops buzzing. Any suggestions? RCAs and amp power are on...

    I have a 2013 Cruze with disc brakes, I am hearing a noise when braking, first off it is not present at all times it seems like it is occuring after driving awhile . The noise is hard to describe it is not a squealing or grinding sound that is common with brake problems it can only be heard...

    So I have the 2011 Eco with 6spd automatic. The AC suck is strong on that one! In order to remedy not being roasted to death in 90+F degrees, I picked up the habit of harvesting kinetic energy, and routing it to the AC; meaning, When I approach a stop light, or need to stop, I switch to manual...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I recently took a long road trip. The last stretch was from Reno to San Francisco over the Sierra mountains - about 200 miles. There are a lot of 5-6% downgrades. I downshifted a lot to keep from overheating the brakes. When I got home the oil level was down a little. It makes me wonder if the...

  9. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hello all, I have a tricky one. Two years ago while driving in a tight storage facility, I tried braking in reverse, and I nearly crashed into the storage facility. What stopped me from crashing was my pulling on the parking brake. I tried duplicating the issue, and it would would...

    I have seen some posts that sound similar to what im experiencing, but due to my limited knowledge, I don't know if its the same issue. So I thought I would post. Here goes...please help! There is a clunking coming from under the driver side floorboard that sounds and feels like something is...

    Hello, I have had a great experience with my Cruze at right about 25,000 km where they dropped in a brand new transmission because a bearing had gone bad. 2012 Cruze Eco 1.4T 6M I am now at 40,000km and just today after a 200km drive, a new problem has arisen : when braking in gear, I get a...

    I have a 14 Cruze with an interesting issue. When I brake somewhat hard, the HVAC fan will slow down for a brief moment and the headlights will dim. This has been happening since I drove the car of the lot with 13 miles on the odometer. I've had the car in 3 times so far. First, they tightened...
  13. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I'm just curious if it would be possible to get the lights on the trunk to light up when pressing the brake pedal along with the lights already there
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    its been happening off and on some days itll happen and somedays it wont, Im starting to wonder if its because of the K&N CAI i put in its a short ram also. At the stop itll just surge i wont see a jump in rpms on the tachometer. Maybe its the MAF or IAC? I am very new to forums of any sort just...

    2012 cruze lt1, Pedal is hard like it would be if your car shut off and there was no power brakes. It has only happened a few times and always in reverse. Any one else experienced thisin your cars?
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey there. My first car is the Cruze Eco MT and is also the first car I have ever driven stick on. I have been driving it for about 6 months and occasionally downshift, but I have noticed that downshifting for engine braking is useless because the Cruze Eco does not engine brake. I have also...
  17. Gen1 Service Issues
    My new Cruze makes a high pitched noise like a small electric motor or electronic hum for a second or so when the brakes are applied or released while making parkng manuevers. It is an automatic transmission, 1.4 turbo Cruze. I've read several postings regarding this noise. It's not very loud...
  18. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    The only thing I notice with my suspension is it almost seems like the car's struts are worn out. When I hit the brake the car seems to nose dive quite a bit. I had a Cobalt SS 2.4L a few years ago and it didn't nose dive anything like this (course the SS had stiffer suspension than a...
  19. Gen1 Service Issues
    When I brake anywhere from 60kmph - 200kmph I hear a noise that sounds like Retard Engine Braking on most Tractor/5-Ton trucks. I don't get any vibration to the steering wheel. I have my first 12000km checkup next month. Is this something that I should worry about.

    Not so much a Sonic post, but more along the lines of "Say Whaaaaat!!!?". Chevy is recalling nearly 4,300 '12 Sonics for a braking problem. It's not that they have a problem stopping, but the pads are missing from the calipers. Really!!! How, even in a Monday stupor, do you put brakes on over...
