I can not believe something big enough could have gotten in there to do it, maybe a bird at 60 MPH. I do not recall hitting anything. My car...

    The other day I decided that my car needed to kiss the kiss the receiver hitch on the car in front of me at the red light.

    First I talked to the service manager at my dealers, said my VIN indicated already has one. But got him to come out and look for it, he couldn't find it either. So we walked back to the parts manager, he said the same thing, even printed out a line drawing showing what it looks like and how...

    So I'm considering replacing the damaged a/c condenser in my 2011 Cruze 1.4T instead of paying the dealer $700 to do it.

Stopped in to see the progress, front bumper was removed to change the fender, and the condenser was literally loaded with insects. He is going to clean those off for me, but what about next time? Only access...

    Tried to get a little a/c going with the warm weather in the midwest. Unfortunately, nothing was cooling down. Took it to the dealer and they determined all the refrigerant was gone and the condenser had probably been damaged by road debris. Supposedly, there is a service fix for this...

I found out the 2012 Cruzes put a shield in front of the condenser to help prevent this from happening. the shield only covers the bottom half of the condenser. Has anyone put...
