  1. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    So I've seen several threads about excellent highway economy from the diesel Cruze's but I'm wondering what most drivers who do a majority of city driving are seeing in mileage? The '27' number is a bit concerning when other TDI models don't dip that much in the city so I'm wondering if its...

    Hey! I traded in a beater 2009 Subaru Impreza 2.5i Base for a red 2011 Cruze Eco about a month ago. You can find me Cruzin' around the Overland Park suburb of Kansas City. I'm enjoying my Cruze quite a bit so far, despite the fact that I only averaged about 34 mpg on the two-3 hour road trips...

    Purchased a CPO 2015 Cruze LTZ, and after 3 weeks of my wife driving to work and back home she's averaged ~17mpg. It was looked at today, they drove it (100 miles?!?!), checked for any codes and said it was operating as expected. Except, I expected better than 17mpg and they seem to think this...

    Figured I'd check this place out! My warranty is about to expire and I plan on doing some serious bodywork and performance mods to my 1.8l LS.
  8. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    Just wondering what kind of city mpg people have been getting with economy minded driving habits. Is the stated mpg of 27 pretty accurate or are people getting better numbers as is evident for hwy? I am about to get a new car and I am on the fence between a 2012 volt with very low mileage...

    Well, for a week now, I have been the owner of a technically new 2014 Cruze Diesel. (It was a demonstrator with 3700 km on it; GM let journalists drive it for reviews. You can see the very vehicle in this review here.) The road to the purchase was a long, strange trip. It began when I rented a...
  11. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi, My commute is about to go from 35 miles, mostly interstate, each way to 2 miles in town. I've read the stories about the DPF getting clogged up with these kinds of commutes and by the time the "Keep Driving" message comes up it is sometimes too late. Of course this is the internet so you...

  14. Fuel Economy
    This weekend I was left the job of driving my son around town! I am the only one that knows their way around the city. While driving, I was thinking about what I read about shifting @ 1400 RPM. I first I was thinking how the @&?$?$ do you do that consistently. All I know I paid attention to...
