  2. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hey all - i've been having front end clunking ever since I changed out my front struts & sway bar links to the metal ones. Only really noticeable at low speeds 15-20mph and below. I'd say it is pretty temperature sensitive, 30 degrees knocks like crazy 31 degrees won't hear it all day 32 degrees...

    If anyone is interested, I am turning in my leased Orange 2017 HB 6-Speed to Shakopee Chevrolet in Shakopee Minnesota. Ask for Joe Itman. Less than 10K miles and practically perfect. Manual transmissions are getting more scarce every day.
  5. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    So I have had my 2018 Diesel 6 speed for 10 months and this week I passed 41K miles. For what I bought this car for I must say I am impressed. It has been very reliable and taken the miles like a champ. So far (knock on wood) the only issue(s) I have had was a nail in the tire the first month I...

    I'm wracked with indecision and just wondering what other Cruze owners think. My 2012 LT has 57,000 miles on it, is in pretty good shape and runs okay. The only possible mechanical issue is the (in)famous disappearing coolant: It's always about 1/2" below the full cold mark even though I add...

  8. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi, Just changed the struts and rear shocks @ 61k miles. Put in Bilsteins. Stock replacements, no changes to ride height. The struts showed up about a month after ordering, rears were on 3 month back-order. Does the suspension need an alignment after doing this work? Car steers the same, is not...

    So factory is denying my powertrain warranty on the basis that i went 8000 miles a few times Based on my service records. I read that others have gone as high as 8500 or more before an oil change. I always went of the oil life system. My cel came on, took it to dealer who said oil pump failed...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    I am not sure what is causing the noise from my 2014 cruze when traveling at high speed. The other thing that is puzzling is its intermittent, so like today the noise started as soon as I hit 75 for 3 min and stop. All seems normal as for the engine idle, breaking, etc.. any help would be...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey peeps. So so my check engine light came on. Ugh. I had it scanned and was told to replace my vapour canister purge valve. So I did. 1 day later, engine light again. Scanned it and this time I was told to replace my mass airflow sensor, so I did. Hours later, engine light on again. My car...

    Quick story: Wife and I both have old cars -- 1991 Honda Civic and 1992 Toyota Corolla -- still running awesome, but lacking the safety features of airbags and all the latest technology of safer driving and convenience. Seeking a new car, we were intent on sticking with the foreign cars...
  15. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I have mentioned noise I hear only at 40 MPH. I have had a couple of "tires shops" look at it and cannot find anything that stands out as a problem. When I turn into a parking lot/driveway with a curb, I sometimes hear a knock in the rear end. Not sure but probably related? Is there a known...
  16. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hey Guys, As mentioned in the title, I have a nondescript front end clunking. It is generally only audible at low speeds, but I can feel it at highway speed. I can feel it in the peddles and through the floor. I tried to get some audio of it, but the microphone on my phone won't pickup the...
  17. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I've seen other threads where folks have had issues with front brakes that click/grind/clank/rattle etc when braking, however my issue is the opposite. When hitting certain bumps in the road (not small bumps nor large bumps, but medium bumps--yeah, I know, hard to explain) I hear a metallic...

  19. Gen1 Powertrain
    I know mostly everyone here looks for top peak power/performance/acceleration, but im looking for a different approach. Im not interested in top RPM power but low to mid. Im looking for acceleration and torque on the low to mid end. Besides a tune which is a must, what other things can...
  20. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Please note that this is a Chevy in the EU market, but I doubt there will me major differences with regard to what I'm dealing with. With the exception of a broken turbo, which got replaced under warranty, I had a relatively worry-free 3 years of ownership of my Cruze. I only clocked 32k miles...
