  2. Gen2 Service Issues
    A while back there was a post that talked about how there was an updated tune to allegedly help deal with the piston damage issue, but the tune only was done on cruzes made after a certain date. Early gen 2's might not have gotten the tune and the dealer won't automatically do it you have to ask...
  3. Gen2 Powertrain
    I've noticed my 2018 Cruze diesel MT sedan has what appears to be a "hill holder" feature. It's something that's built into MT Subaru models in that when you come to a stop on a hill the brakes will hold the vehicle in place while you're using the clutch and throttle to get the car moving from a...

  5. General Discussion
    Recently I watched a review about modern cars, and how their complexity will cause a lot of extra costs over time. Recently for example, I had to replace the electric latch button on my Cruze tailgate. Now it looks like I will have to spend some money on getting the tire pressure gauge to...
  6. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    I am trying to find a good resource for looking up parts to get part numbers. Mainly to see if say for example a door wire harness is different from a Cruze with no auto up vs one with auto up. I know about gmpartsdirect and a few other popular ones but to be honest, they're terrible when it...

    Is there a car that GM made similar to the Cruze for parts. I.E. my Old Trailblazer and Envoy were the same.

    Just bought a 2011 Cruze Eco. I did 17 or 18 years in S/C 3800 W-bodies, but I grew tired of engine swaps and tuning and want more time for other things. So from 400Ft-lb to the tires to what, 100? I like to think I'm growing up. Since I could get 30MPG out of my Regal GS, I wasn't...

    Howdy folks! I've owned a Chevy Cruze for the better part of the last year or so. It was my grandfather's, and when he passed he left it to my father. When I finally became financially established I offered to buy it from him, and after negotiating a loan and price I ended up with a slick 2012...

  13. Gen2 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    So, I ordered my GM splash guards not realizing that they were not made to fit RS cars. So rather than send them back I decided to figure out what needed to be done to make them fit my car (2016 LT RS). After doing some minor alteration, I now have them on my car. Basically you need to cut out...

    Hi everyone, After driving my wife's Hyundai Elantra over the weekend I was reminded why I chose the Cruze for myself. Before buying our pre-owned Cruze eco, I was the one driving the Elantra. When it was time to finally upgrade her ride, I (selfishly) wanted something nicer than the Hyundai so...

    I'm parting out a 2011 cruze LT that was hit in the front drivers side, but I'm keeping the motor and trans to swap into something else. What other cars use the 1.8 ecoboost motor? What about the automatic transmission? Thanks a lot for any help! And send me a message if you need a part!
