  1. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hello all, I have a 2018 Chevy Cruze LS automatic trans. Hopefully someone can shed some light on what the point of the L mode is on the shifter. The OM says it is Low, but the way they diatribe it isn't low as in high/low gear. It seems more like a manual mode. When I put it in L and select the...

It arrived today and the axle looks way too long, would anybody possibly have a video of a front driver side axle replacement or a link or part number for an OEM front driver side axle, I got a duralast one...

    So I drove a 2017 chevy cruze with cloth seats for the first round. I absolutely loved it, but I noticed you have to be light on your feet with the pedal or when that turbo spools up you are riding someone's butt by accident. I had that happen a few times and had to brake going up a highway...
  4. Gen2 Service Issues
    Sorry if this has been answered already. I can't get search to work well. Does the Gen 2 1.4 GTDI engine drain plug have issues with a stripping (Torx drive? or hex drive?) like the Gen 1 engine? If the original drain plug is 'no good', is there a recommendation for a replacement plug? If...

    ...if it had a salvage title and not a scrap/nonrepairable title. Knock out the dents in the trunk lid as best as I can, replace taillights and bumper cover, and drive it. https://www.copart.com/lot/21837088
  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi, I would like some help on this one.. My 2010 cruze started to do this weird thing lately, a specially when I'm pushing the gas to accelerate (around 3000 rpm and more), it seems like the gearbox is hard to decide what is the best gear and just shift the gear sooner than it supposed to. In...
  7. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I got a $50 test drive coupon from Chevy, so I decided to take an extended test drive in a diesel. Car is MBM with leather package, 35 miles on the odometer. I'll skip over the "common to all Cruze's" and focus on what's unique to the diesel. 1) Quiet diesel is correct, especially after the...

    Have a Cuze LTZ 2011 1.4 auto six spd. Have noticed a few times when selecting Drive from a stopped position that it pauses before engaging drive. In fact I thought a couple times it engaged only to hear it rev up and then engage drive. Anyone know when this fluid should be changed? Must be some...

    So, this is coming from someone who has put 200K+ miles on a 2014 Diesel, so it's pretty much a direct comparison. I found an LT with the leather package and the sun/sound package on it, MSRP was $29K-ish. I will just list off my impressions as I think of them. Pros: - Nice smelling...

    Went in for my first synthetic oil change today. Wanted them to check the chirping which forums indicate is the tensioner. Dealer wanted to charge $99 to assess. I told them I wouldn't pay that as the noise was loud enough for anyone to diagnose. They tell me it is the tensioner, drive belt...

Apple car play loved it, heated steering wheel was very nice, quiet inside, much better...

    Hello everyone, I have a 2012 LS 1.8L. The other day it started to give me trouble when I pressed the gas pedal. It will just run to the first or second rpm, but then suddenly it just won't accelerate anymore not even on reverse. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5WA-jSRfEk Any suggestions...

    Went for a drive this past weekend out in the country so i could go take a hike. It was great weather and drove with all the windows down and in manu-matic mode all the way. Went through some winding roads and had tons of fun driving and hiking. Didn't think about driving with fuel economy...

    When using a USB thumb drive filled with music in your Cruze, are you able to shuffle play from the radio controls? Or does it simply play the tunes in order?

    Today Tomko, his wife, Sunline Fan, my wife and I had lunch with Patsy, some of her co-workers at GM in Detroit, and the overall Product Manager for the North American Chevy Cruze. Despite repeated attempts, the PM was very tight lipped about upcoming products. GM Social Media does a lot more...
