    3 reasons why DC charging will leave AC in the dust "... new high-power models that can charge a car in close to the time it takes to fill a gas tank...." Makes me wonder what that does to battery life.

    Got a 2013 Cruze LT 2.4L. The charging system was acting up but never really had a battery light on. So I replaced the alternator. Now every time I start it up and look at the charging voltage it'll start at about 14.4 and then gradually go down. Sometimes for a while it'll stay at about 13.6...

    Fixed my battery charging problem myself. 3 dealers denied a problem to start. So anyway, 2 months after ownership my battery goes from charging at 14.4 to 15.0 Volts and higher. I have seen 15.6 Volts which i think is really high. My ride quality changed as well shifting was a little different...

    TLDR: MIL comes on, Onstar says Charging issue, P3051 P3052 P3055 P3056 P305C P305E U18A7 - can't find the last three in Google searches. My Cruze turned one year old 10 days ago and has been great so far. No real issues except I haven't had the Center Stop Indicator Recall work done because my...

    Has anyone ever installed a Wireless Charger in there car? I have one for home use and I think it would be cool to have one installed in the Cruze. Not sure where you would put one or if it would be worth it but I think if you had a proper location it would be a nice feature.

    Good Evening All, I know wall outlet charger is the most superior but in terms of car which is better? I ask because I once used a USB charger in my car but noticed sometimes the battery life would actually go down. (Say if i was using GPS) I know it's not the cable because I've used that same...

    Hello I have a new 14 TD and I want to hook up a Battery a Tender Plus and it appears the CTD is a negative ground system so I would hook up positive first and then negative to frame/engine etc. I don't see a ground post like some GM cars have. I included a picture and I see a bolt on the...

    Hi, I traded in my 2007 Malibu for a Chevy Cruze 2012 LT yesterday. I found out that with google navigation running on my galaxy note i717, the battery drains out and eventually the phone dies even when the phone is plugged into the power outlet. What a disappoinment! It never happened in my...
