    Just curious. You remote start the car. Then when you get it you have to put your foot on the brake and press start again. What’s the point, particularly pressing start again if the car is already on. If you leave the AC on when you turn off the car, while it autostart again if you remote...

    My 1st post here and I look forward to all the knowledge. I am trading my Corvette for a new '17 diesel and since the dealer is just over 1k miles away,I want to break in the engine correctly. I'm not sure the salesperson is familiar with the procedure since they sell few diesels,so I'm counting...

    Hi, I recently bought a cruze hatchback 2017 and I would like to know if upgrading the brake and suppression system with GM kit will have any impact on MPG. Also, would the car be noisy if I upgrade it? one of the reasons I chose this model was because it's not noisy. Thanks!

    Anyone had problems with handbrakes/transmission with Cruze 2013? We had a serious incident where our Cruze in the middle of the evening, decided to roll down our hill side backwards. Handbrake was still on when it stopped. And since the car is with automatic transmission, we are more than...

    Hey all, So my 2012 Cruze Sri-V Petrol broke down a few weeks ago. The car began by stalling and then regaining power to the point it would stall completely and start back up and then to the point of cranking but not firing. At first I thought it may have been the fuel pump or bad fuel. The car...

    Does the 2014 Cruze come with special oil designed for a break in period of the engine, or is it just normal engine oil?
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello all, I've been doing some reading on this and understand the break in dos/donts but was wondering how long till the motor is good and broke in and start to see the best fuel mileage our cars are capable of. I've only owned the car for 9 days and have put about 450 miles on it already and...

    Hi guys, i'v got a 2010 1.6 Cruze LS and i was thinking of lowering her by 40Mil on some eibach springs. The issue I have, is that I do alot of long distance driving so comfort is critical. I was wondering if lowering it by this much would recudce the ride quality substantially. I had coilovers...

    I've topped off the tank only twice and typically warm up the car for 5-10 minutes. The avg high temperature has only been in the low 20's here since I've had the car (about a week). The drive is a mix hwy/city with the DIC showing around 40mph avg speed. Does this sound normal?
  19. Fuel Economy
    But I've got a lot working against me. There's the hilly terrain I drive, and all the work stuff in my Cruze. As it is, I'm still beating the EPA estimate quite handily. Switching out the oem Firestone FR710's for the LRR Bridgestone Ecopias is one of my strategies as the Ecopias are supposed...
  20. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    After I bought my LS and drove it a few days i noticed how bad the clutch smelled. Not being a manual novice i went to the dealer where they told me it was normal fir the first 500 miles whilr it broke it. Sure enough just after 500 miles all smell went away. Now i figured all would be the...
