  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I'm curious to hear other owners data about any drop in fuel economy with winter fuel. Since the Polar Vortex arrived (and left) where I live I've experienced four tanks of fuel that are consecutively terrible. From the Polar Vortex I'm sure the fuel suppliers have been blending #1 diesel into...

    I took my 18 Sedan Premier RS in for my first oil change at 6125 miles, made appointments where I purchased the car at Hare Chevrolet in Noblesville, IN at 830 AM, only one car ahead ahead of me to my surprise, at 9AM the service advisor has me sign some paperwork and says I will go get your...

    So I just wanted to share my buying experience with my Cruze. It's going to be detailed, but I think it is fairly unique - As leasing a car goes anyways. So my lease was scheduled to end on December 12th. I've been through this once before, so I thought the process would be mostly if not...

    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...

    So Jan 2017 I got the Ally Major Guard 72/72 $100 deductible coverage when I bought my 14 Cruze with 32k on her. Coverage is good till 01/2023 or 104,000. My steering seemed to be stiff, lock type feel after driving for a while on the highway. I saw a service bulletin for this so I went into...
  6. CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    Hi Folks - I'm glad I found this great resource in CruzeTalk. I referenced CruzeTalk a few years ago when my parents purchased a 2014 Cruze LT with RS package and 18" wheels so that I could research downsizing the wheels for winter tires. I was able to find the necessary information to confirm...

    Hello, Recently purchased a 2017 LT Hatchback, tires are 205 / 55 R16. On one Google search I found a Cruze manual that says WARNING Do not use tire chains. There is not enough clearance. Tire chains used on a vehicle without the proper amount of clearance can cause damage to the brakes...
  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    This is the aisin warner auto transmission in the cruze diesel. It irritates me that manufacturers are trying so hard to make it where only they can service our cars. This is certainly true here. I have the shop manuals like dealership has, so my first attempt I followed their directions. On...
  9. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So, as I had mentioned in the couple of recent threads about cleaning the throttle plate and EGR valve, I wanted to check ours and clean if needed to combat some running/starting issues my wife has been encountering in the past months. I started at about 8PM, so it was pretty dark, but that...

    Our 2012 Cruze is in the shop for coolant loss, turns out it is the turbo coolant tube. So it is getting a new turbo and coolant tube and thankfully it is all under warranty. It only has 47k on it but will be 5yrs old in Sept. I got a 2017 Premier as a loaner. Kind of have to say, I was not a...
  11. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I got the code about 2 weeks ago. Did some looking around this is caused by the urea tank heater. I took it down to Berger Chevy in Grand Rapids. I had them do the NOX sensor recall and this repair as well. The issue IS covered under a special service notice but only to 120,000 miles from the...
  12. Gen2 Powertrain
    I just changed my LE2 over to Amsoil signature synthetic. My first tank of fuel after the change my economy average is up almost 7 mpg on my normal drive to work and slowly climbing still. Anyone else have this kind of result?
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I went to the local tuning shop that has a great reputation of fabricating and tuning 500-4000hp cars to get some dyno results after BNR tuning. YIKES! It was a pretty bad experience. First off, a "Service Stabili-Trac" alarm popped up before we got the Cruze up to rpms. We restarted the car...
  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze and I was involved in an accident with a deer on 11/11/16. My insurance agency gave me a few options for repair so I chose my local Chevrolet dealership, Hardy Chevrolet in Gainesville, GA, because I thought they would do the best job as they are a Chevrolet...
  15. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I'm looking into getting either a drop-in K&N filter for my Cruze, or getting a full CAI kit from them. Any thoughts on which will get the motor to respond better? I know they don't work miracles, but if I can get more sound and a little better throttle response, I'll be happy.
  16. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I'm looking for people who have purchased the interior trim kit from the website below, to give me feedback on the quality/fit/finish and overall how satisfied they are with it. My LTZ has that goofy mesh fabric trim on the door panels and dash and I'd prefer to put something like carbon fiber...
  17. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Well, I am at 143K miles and it's finally time for the rear pads to be replaced. I can probably get away with a few more weeks, but it's pretty much right at the limit.
  18. Gen1 Powertrain
    Since this seems to be a well-known issue, I figured I'd get my story on record for the wrongful-death class-action suit that will eventually happen. I didn't have a near-death experience, but easily could have. 2013 Cruze with 11500 miles. Earlier this week we awoke to a cool, foggy day...

    I threw this on the Facebook page, too. I wanted to give a shout out to Advantage Chevy in Bolingbrook, IL. I brought my '13 LT 6A Cruze with 67k miles to the dealer with a cel and a rough running engine. I thought for sure that they would figure out a way to deny that it's covered under the...
