  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Hey, new member and prospective buyer here. I'm not new to diesels at all, but my VW TDI recently got damaged and I'm thinking about options for upgrading. I'm researching and haven't really seen any comparisons of the Cruze diesel yet, so thought I'd ask. What are the major differences? Are...
  2. CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    Hi, new to the forum; I'm trying to find out the differences in the F18d4 motor. I have a KL3 2010 Cruze and the head is cracked (among other things). I've bought a F18d4 motor from a wreckers but noticed it doesn't have the oil level sensor hole in the oil pan. This reminded me that I was...

    In the GEN 1 Cruze most of us on the forum significantly valued the engine choice between the 1.8L in the LS, vs. the Turbo. 1.4. Chevy.com now has the build a Cruze tool open, and you can configure a Cruze. That's nothing new. We're all car enthusiasts on the forum, what I'd like to do is...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    What are differences between a 2011 1.4 and the 2012-2014 engines? 2012-2014 are on the same interchange list. The 2011 is all by itself. The ECM aren't on the same interchange list. The engines aren't on the same interchange list. Is it sensors? Is it ECM hardware? Both use E78. I have 2 stand...
  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    I'm new to the forum and come to you guys for a little advice as I'm possibly in the market for a new Cruze diesel. I have found a few leftover '14 models for a good price, but have a friend with one that has been a nightmare with emissions issues. It seems as though his car has spent almost...
  6. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Hi, I have a 2011 LT that needs the front bumper cover replaced. A local yard has a 2012 LT cover. Are there any differences between years? I have seen on line replace ment covers that said 2011-12 another even said 2011-14. Thanks Adam
  7. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I recall, when I purchased a full size spare tire, that the rim size for a "gasoline model" would not fit on the diesel ? Have been considering some "accessories" but many companies do not list 2014 diesel separately. Went though a few hoops (just so I wouldn't have to send back items) to...
  8. Fuel Economy
    I have both a 2012 and a 2013 ECO all the same options except one the gas mileage I can consistently get 40 to 50+ MPG from 2012 but ,the 13 almost never gets above 40 usually around 32 does anyone have any idea why please help me understand. If I knew there was going to be such a difference I...
  9. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Prompted by a post in another thread, I'm curious what differences/additions there are in exterior appearance based on trim. Based on the previous post, I believe the LS has black mirrors and black around the windows. At 1LT body color mirrors and chrome under the windows is added. What else...
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Anybody know what the differences are? Will they interchange? They appear to be two different part numbers, the auto part is $100 cheaper, but I need a manual one. Anybody have an extra they want to sell?
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    This past weekend, I met up with Poje to get his stock suspension since he went coilover. Thanks again, man! We took the opportunity to talk shop, and the talk got around to tunes. He has a customized Vermont tune he's quite happy with, I have a customized Trifecta tune I'm quite happy with. Of...
  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    This is one of the more comprehensive reviews I've seen so far. I thought this passage was helpful in describing some of the changes made for the U.S. market: Personally I think die-hard diesel fans would be fine with "Euro-style" diesels, but I can see GM's point also in trying to reach a...
  13. General Discussion
    Hi there, after much calculations and decision making that includes different factors, I came to the point where I am comparing the 1LT mt 2013 to the Eco mt 2011. Leasing the car completely new would net me around 250$/mo for a 2013 and buying an Eco mt 2011 used at 27000 miles would net me...
  14. General Discussion
    1. Z link or Watt linkage present on AT vehicle, but omitted on MT (this is a significant chunk of hardware). 2. Spare tire is an option on the AT vehicle, but not available on MT. 3. Advertised fuel capacity on the AT vehicle is 15.6 gal, but only 12.6 on the MT. 4. Rear seat center...
