    I recently bought a Cruze for a decent price but boy was I in it for a ride. Already had to put the car through three recall issues (including negative battery cable) and had to replace all seals in the car since it was leaking coolant and engine oil. Buying into a 1st gen car without reading...

    Howdy, I recently purchased a 2015 2LT Cruze, AT, 67k miles. I love the car aesthetically, mechanically is another story. Right off the lot it was leaking oil out the crankcase. This was well-disguised by the dealership's detailing of the engine bay, but became pretty apparent by day 2 of...

    I learned many years ago, from my brother who was a jet engine mechanic in the Air Force then a commercial pilot on 747's, when you first turn your key and watch all your lights turn on, then actually starting the engine, how many of you actually read all the lights? It's a crucial part of...

    2014 Diesel Cruze, automatic - Leased new in August of 2013. Vehicle now has 27,000 clicks on the odometer. The car has met all of my expectations and more. After driving it for almost two years, I'm still impressed with the torque and the fuel mileage. I've found that driving around 63mph on...

    Hey everyone! I'm jake, I just recently purchased a 2012 Cruze LTZ RS. I have always enjoyed cars, and figured I'd join up here to see what type of clean, tasteful mods people have done. Plans are simple cosmetic tweaks, then eventually wheels and coilovers!

    Sept. 29, checked campaign 14417, "check coolant level without a leak"; was told "no leak, coolant level ok"; two weeks later, car is presently in the shop at the dealership here, now quoted " need an engine coolant fan", not covered by the powertrain warranty. I feel it may have been the...

    Hi guys, I'm new to the Cruze but not to cars. I first fell in love when I rented one a few weeks ago because my daily driver (2002 Civic LX) was down and I had to get to work. Tuesday I took delivery of a used 2013 Cruze LT Automatic with 6,5XX miles on it. Wednesday I had the windows...

Ended up getting a good deal from Five Star Chevy in Warner Robins, GA on the exact car she wanted, so we drove up from Jax and picked it up. Left my money in the bank and took the 48 mo., 0% financing. As far as...

    So my wife and I traded in our 2011 Texas Edition Silverado for a 2012 Blue Topaz Cruze LT with the 1.4T and the 6 Spd Auto. I'm pretty sure we will be very happy with it considering how happy I am with my 2012 Sonic LT with the same motor and the 6 Spd Manual... I'm going to detail it some time...
