  1. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hi all. Was wondering if driving continuously in L6 to avoid auto stop/start feature, damage the car in any way? Transmission, engine etc?
  2. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hi everyone, I have a 2016 2nd generation Cruze on way to me via a shipper that I bought online. I have been doing some reading and am very fearful of the Piston damage that I've read is very prevalent with some gen2 cruzes. Can anyone suggest things i could do to if not completely eliminate...
  3. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I hit a large chunk of truck tire on the highway today, nothing I could do, the guy in front of me swerved last minute to avoid it but I had someone in either lane beside me so I had no choice but to hit it dead on. It damaged my spoiler and bottom of the grille which really stinks, I can't even...

    On Tuesday, April 3rd 2018 I dropped my Cruze off for service which consisted of replacing a leaking valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket, and torque converter seal, all things that had to be replaced on a car that doesn’t even have 100,000 miles on it yet thanks to poor manufacturing by General...
  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    Good day fellow Cruze owners; Two weeks ago I discovered an oil spot under my 2013 LT before I left work, once home I waited a couple hours and checked again, sure enough another spot. I called my dealer as I was intending on having brake service and plugs changed, so I described the issue and...
  6. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I managed to catch this before it failed, but thought I'd document it here for the benefit of other Diesel owners: I was preparing to clean the throttle body and EGR the other day after my oil change on my Diesel (just over 82,000 miles), and noticed a sensor wire that was worn through to...

    So I took my cruze for first free service (and recall stuff) and just noticed today they mutilated one (only one) of the plastic lug covers and they all feel super tight not hand tight (covers). Hmm say something or not? Service dpts get pretty prickly when you say damage. I dont want bad...

    First time in over twenty years hail has damaged a car in my driveway! My '13 Suburban took a light hit, too. Not terrible - estimate is only $815. But the frustration, work, and $500 out of my bank account. Ah, well... into each life... , eh? :mellow:

    On my 3 previous VW Jettas use of a floor jack had caused at least one mutilated jacking point on each Jetta. Make a "jacking pad" from a 4" piece of 3 X 1 1/2 channel iron and a 4" piece of pine 2X3. Trim the sides of the pine to fit the channel, then glue the pine into the channel iron and...

    Long story short, a valet didn't read directions and somehow moved the transmission from park to drive without having his seatbelt on...Can this cause damage to the gears? I don't know the valet managed to do what he did, but if anyone could provide some insight here, that'd be great.

    This morning my windshield was covered with heavy snow. So I get in my car, start it up, go outside and start removing the snow. What I didn't know was that my dad had left the wipers on at the intermittent position lowest setting. The wipers didn't move expect when I started removing some of...

    Took my 2015 Cruze for an oil change at GM and they forgot to refill the engine oil and left the coolant reservoir cap loose. Literally one of my worst nightmares was stalling in rush hour traffic which happened today due to the engine overheating. I drove about 10KM off the service lot and got...

    So I have 2014 chevy cruze LT2 that was hit on the side. Could you guys please give me some tips if this can be repaired or the entire quarter panel needs to be replaced? I would like to restore the side to original state so no damage is noticeable from outside, while the inner bumper area to be...
  15. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    So, a year and a half ago I had some wiring in my Cruze get munched on by rodents. The result was one dead turn signal and windshield washer. Yesterday, I noticed that my windshield washer was barely pumping though I could hear the motor running, and one of the side marker lights was out...

    Hey guys, So today I pulled into the gas station, got out and there were two people at the pay machine (Arco). So I walked to the other side to pay rather than wait, unfortunately, because then I wasn't able to see my car. When I went back to my car it was gone... I thought someone stole it...

    Wrecked it being dumb, inexperienced in the rain, hit a fire hydrant (no water did not shoot out). Airbags didnt deploy, but aside from not being able to drive it home, I have no idea if its ever going to go back to pre wreck condition. I'm just pissed and sad that I ****** up such a nice car...

    Alrighty so I bought my Cruze back in May of last year and the snow was almost all melted away. Managed to keep the car nice and pretty throughout the summer minus a few rock chips. This winter is beating the crap out of her though. I noticed that just in front of the rear wheel wells it looks...

    Took my cruze to the dealer for an electrical problem. While there the tech managed to drive it into a lift. They are telling me they can cut out the bad and put in a new section. What do you think. They say it will not be on the car fax. Thought that rocker panels were unibody frame parts...
