    Iv'e never had a car with drum brakes (at least I don't think so), and in the future I want to replace the rear drums with discs. How expensive is this venture? As Ive never done a brake conversion myself. I wouldn't want to do it myself unless it were really really easy.

    Hi, Anyone here have any thoughts on the quality of Cruze's rear drum brakes on the 1LT? How many miles have folks got out of them so far? Also, are they self-adjusting, or should they be adjusted every 15,000 miles? Thanks.

    I've been itching to take the Cruze on a track and run some serious laps. Problem is the brake drums will most likely melt off. At this point i will take any solution.

    My Cruze has rear drum brakes. How do you adjust them? Can you back up and hit the brakes hard to make them adjust. This is one way that you adjusted older drum brake cars.
