  2. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hey, so last Friday my automatic transmission finally blew out when I was on the highway at 105k miles and wouldn't shift past 3rd, had AAA tow it to Chevy when service was closed and had them set me up in a brand new 2015 Silverado off the lot because they had no rental vehicles left, been...

    What is the recommended timeframe/mileage to have the factory oil changed? When we bought our '11 Fusion it stated in the owner's manual when it should be done, but can't find anything in the Cruze owners manual.

    Just like the title says :) I have an auto, and I understand that the trans will be touchy and rough for a bit. It's been a couple hundred miles for me and in performance mode the shifting can be overly stiff (although it has smoothed out some), seems to shift very fast up through the gears...

    I picked up my Tungsten Metallic 2014 Cruze LT/RS my dealer ordered for me on Saturday - 2 Miles on it. I am wondering what everyone else did as far as breaking in the car?

    The dealer just called and said my 2012 cruze is ready for pickup (they had to replace the 52,000 mile old motor after a coolant leak that was coming from a crack in the block). I'm going to pick it up in the morning. It has a "new remanufactured engine". What is the break in procedure?

    Just wanted to share my strategy with breaking the new LUJ engine in. Unfortunately for me, I travel 85-90% highway, so I look goofy on the parkway breaking my car in lol, but this is what I'm doing: 0-150 miles: 1/4 throttle accels 151-300 miles: 1/2 accels 300-500 miles: 3/4 accels 500-...

    Just picked up the new Cruze tonight. Just wondering if anyone did anything "special" to break in their engine. I was once told the proper way to break in an engine is to bring the engine up to redline in 2nd, then let off and let the car coast to almost stopped then drive it hard for 5-10 min...

    Hey All, Just placed my deposit today for a 2012 Cruze 1LT 6M/T w/ RS package. Hopefully get it sometime this week!! Question is: what is the best breaking in procedure for the motor/tranny? I've heard lots of different theories about what to do. Drive hard, drive soft, speed up and slow down...

    No, I'm not talking about illegal entry.. What has everyone been using for a break-in procedure ? I've heard so many ways through the years...everything from "just drive it easy for the first 500 miles" to "Drive it like you stole it, if it's any good it won't hurt it" MHF
