  1. Trying different full synthetic dexos1 oils...

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Instead of my now-customary Quaker State Ultimate Durability 5w-30, today's oil change at 27k miles at 7500 mile change interval and 26% on the OLM got Peak Synthetic 5w-30. Both are dexos1 labeled oils. I can't tell a difference with the butt dyno between the two. The engine sounds the same...
  2. Requested a full refund for my new Cruze.

  5. Where is full on the dipstick?

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I checked my oil today, and it wasn't entirely clear which line was 'full'. There are 4 blocks seperated by 3 lines on the dipstick. Does full mean the oil is in the 4th block up from the bottom? Thanks

    Fuel Economy
    Hello, I literally bought the Cruze LT with the RS Package a day ago, learning more and more about its features, definitely a nice car, ride is very smooth and quiet. One thing I am concerned about is, it was filled up when I left the dealership, I only drove about 50 miles and the thing is...

It leaves me angry at times, where I want to pass cars and my the gear does not change fast...
