  1. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hey guys, quick question. I currently have 16 inch stock steelies on my 2012 LS. I found a guy with some OEM 17's for sale that I am considering buying(see attachment). Will they fit my car without any problems? I'm pretty sure they will fit perfectly but it's a couple hours' drive and I don't...
  2. Gen2 Service Issues
    Bought a 17' Hatchback Premier that was a certified pre-owned with 13k. Ready for first oil change since I've had it...does it have regular or synthetic oil in it?
  3. Gen2 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Occasionally i have some basic questions mostly in regards of market differences. It's not really worth it to create a new thread every time and i couldn't categorize it into a sub forum. So i figured to make a thread where quick questions can be answered. Mods, you might move or sticky it. So...
  4. Gen2 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Almost every time I've washed my Cruze, I've been applying trim dressing to all the black plastics on the exterior. While I've been binge-watching detailing videos, I've noticed how some pro and enthusiasts would apply a dressing or some form of protection to the grille of a vehicle. My dumb...

    Has anyone tried putting 2lt seats in a 1lt cruze? Im tired of cloth seats, and don't want to go the cover route. I have a 2013 cruze
  6. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So I went to fill up for the first time yesterday and ran into an unexpected scenario: there were two types of diesel, #2 and premium. I tried to Google the difference and it seems it's some additives to increase cetane and a couple other things, but there's really no guidelines on what would...
  7. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    So, I have about 54K miles on my CTD. I am needing brakes soon. I was wondering has anyone replaced their brakes on their CTD? I have looked at all of the auto parts stores in my area and most of them dont have all of the parts I need. When I do my brakes I replace the pads and rotors. I...
  8. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So checked the oil on our car and is just down a couple hatches from the top. I wanted to get a quart of oil to have on hand so when I need it can just top it off. Well went all over today and all I can find is full synthetic 5w30 dexos 2 oils.. So I went to our dealer and they didn't have any...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Sorry if this is kind of a long post, but I've been skimming over a few forums (this site's forums in particular) while doing some research on tuning. I had a couple of things I was wondering about doing something like the Trifecta tune. Bear with me, 'cause I know some of this is probably going...

    But I'm curious as to what the small tab near the gearshift is. I looked through the owners manual and the forums, but couldn't find an answer. Probably because I'm not sure what it's called. Thanks in advance.

    Ok I have a question for you guys. How do I change my fog light bulbs? I tried the search function and all I found was how to install Fog Lights..... Mines a 2013 if that matters.
  12. CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    We've been thinking about a cruze for a while now and finally did it. We bought the LT. 2013. I do have a couple of questions that haven't gotten answered yet and thought here would be a good place to ask. I have the backup camera. OK. kind of a fishbowl effect, but OK. I like the remote...

    So for my first mods to my LTZ RS, I want to do simple stuff. For example, I am going to put black vinyl on the front and back bowties. I'm saving up to tint all 4 windows but I don't know what percentage I want because I don't know the tinting laws in Illinois. Also, I know people get away...

    Let's face it, we weren't born with a wrench in our hands. While some of us have a good understanding of automotive mechanics, sound systems, and other car-related topics, we didn't always know as much as we do. There was a time in my life when I didn't know what a header was, and I couldn't...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys, So I just bought my Cruze a few days ago (First car too). I have a dumb simple question. How do I use the turbo? I think I have been using this whole time but there's no indicator except for actually feeling a nice boost when accelerating. So if that's the case is it as simple as...
  16. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    HI, yes, I read the manual.. but can't work out how to actually copy music to the hard drive in the car? My iPod works just fine - but I want to copy my mp3 onto the cars hard drives saving plugging my iPod into the car all the time. I copied my itunes music to a 6gb USB stick, put it in the usb...
