    It looks like I'm going to be keeping the Cruze a little longer than what I expected, and I'm looking at doing struts and shocks. For some of you that have been around for a while like @XtremeRevolution will remember that early 2011 and 2012 Cruzes prior to VIN C7239134 required replacement...
  2. Gen2 Service Issues
    A while back there was a post that talked about how there was an updated tune to allegedly help deal with the piston damage issue, but the tune only was done on cruzes made after a certain date. Early gen 2's might not have gotten the tune and the dealer won't automatically do it you have to ask...
  3. Gen2 Service Issues
    Great.... I bought my brand new 2nd gen cruze this March and I felt my steering wheel lately had a clunking, clicking noise. So took it to the dealer and got a call back they need to replace the rack and pinion. I think this is way too early to go bad at 15.000 miles ! Very disappointed.

    Hi guys, I have a 2nd gen LT with the automatic, it has a little over 8000 miles on it so far. for the first couple thousand miles it was alright. Now the transmission has recently started shifting harshly, the harsh shifts are much worse when you first start driving the car after its been...

  7. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Having just gone through the RVC problems I make reference to a earlier 2011 post on how a properly functioning Cruze system should perform, particular to the post by n4435rc ...
  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    After putting 7100 mostly-uneventful-miles on my CTD in the past three months since purchase, it went into limp mode Saturday morning right after backing out of my drive. Moments earlier, right after starting the engine, the "Particulate Filter Full, Keep Driving" message (or something to that...
  9. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I appoligize if this issue is well known, but I thought I would relate my experience. I purchased my vehicle (in Texas) back in July. At that time, I was the first diesel sold by that dealer - diesel models were hard to locate back then ! The other day, the car refused to crank. Matter of...

    Hi, I'm a new 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel owner and either I made a great buy or a big mistake? I had a hard time finding a diesel in So Cal and when I found one in the color I wanted I jumped on it. I had the dealer remote start my car after buying it and within 10 miles my CEL came on. Needless to...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    I just experienced 2014 Chevy Cruze Turbo Diesel DEF emissions system failure at 2600 miles. Dealer did not have parts in stock. GM wants to look at the problem before releasing parts and doing the service work on the car. I had concerns about buying the new diesel model in its...

    Sciphi posted at Bob the Oil Guy that some early 2011 owners manuals covered a tool less TPMS reset procedure. Any owners of such vehicles? Apparently my Cruze takes Dex-VI, and it's a MT! - Bob Is The Oil Guy

    It's only one-week early, but it's a good sign. Apparently, sales are picking up in California: GM restarts production early to meet increased demand for Chevy Volt | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    While Chevrolet is readying a diesel version of their Cruze compact in 2013, an interesting tidbit of information leaked out regarding another gas-saving variant of the Cruze a plug-in hybrid model. Australia's GoAuto reports that the Cruze will be a traditional plug-in hybrid, where the...
