  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Bought a 2018 TD and it gets great fuel mileage. I've been over 700 just in the first few months of ownership, but I'd like to push that number up as far as I can get it. Any information would be appreciated.

    Hello. I just wanted to share this. I purchased the Scangauge mostly because their website shows xgauges for any 2014+ Cruze diesel. I programmed a bunch of their gauges and can say that at this time they do not work. The only one that populates any data is EGT1. Soot mass, current gear...

    2013 Cruze LT 1.4 turbo and automatic with 78000 miles is dieseling or running-on after shutting the key off for a couple of seconds. Seems worse when cold first thing in the morning. I have cleaned throttle plate and there are no current codes stored. Any suggestions on what to look at?

    Hello, Got a tungsten metallic about a month ago. So far I have two full fill-ups, and am happy with the economy even with varying the RPM etc during the first few thousand miles. I am turning in a 2010 Jetta sedan TDI, so that is my basis for comparison. The steering and handling of the Cruze...

    Another study reveals hybrids are best in city driving, diesels are best on the highway. This isn't news, it's been known for a long time. What is surprising is the lack of diesel hybrids... Another Study Confirms: Hybrids Do Best In Cities, Diesels On Highways

    I've been studying the inventory in my area, and CTD's are not too hard to find within 100 miles. Some dealers even have 2 or 3. Reviewing the VINs I can tell there are cars that have been available since last summer up through recent shipments. With a gasoline vehicle, I'd probably not think...
