  1. Gen1 Powertrain
    While my car is parked for the winter, I've been thinking of the maintenance I should do come spring. I want to flush the cooling system and was considering getting rid of the Dexcool and switching to universal. Has anyone done this and is it a bad idea for any reason?
  2. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I just recently put in a new touchscreen pioneer radio and I wasn’t sure what to do with my light green wire. (Parking Brake wire). So I then realized that I need it hooked up to my postive side of my parking brake to get my Bluetooth portion of my radio to work. If someone could give me...
  3. Cruze Parts
    Like the title states, I have headlights and injectors that are brand new, never installed. The Winjet projector headlights retail for $250. I do not want to ship so I'm looking to sell locally (MN, WI, IA). Asking $250. Willing to negotiate. The Bosch injectors are brand new as well...
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey gang, I had to take the Cruze in to the dealer since I had 2 more weeks on warranty. I was leaking anti-freeze and it was green so apparently someone put it in instead of Dexcool. That used to be a really bad thing and I was wondering if it still is...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi guys! Just got a 2012 Cruze with 45k miles and the 1.4L Eco motor. I LOVE the gas mileage this thing gets and surprisingly quick for such a tiny motor. I changed the oil and filter and air filter today when I noticed a coolant leak from the upper reservoir bypass hose. Turned out to be...

    Hi I'm Tonya, Aka Ladybugtonya. I'm here to learn as much as possible about my Cruze so she'll hopefully last longer than the other vehicles who had the misfortune of landing at my house where cars come to die. Yes this has been the last stop for many an older vehicles. I consider myself an...

    Hello folks. Another member, elegant, clued me in to the existence of this forum, and any forum he is on must be OK. My user name, Milliwatt Rob, is a tribute to an eccentric, and very sick, old friend who is "morbidly thrifty". He keeps his electric use so low, that at times his electric...
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    2012 Cruze LT - 36,600 miles (over 36 months old) My A/C just quit while driving to a meeting tonight where the car was parked on gravel for a few hours so I did not see anything under the car. After arriving home, I looked under the front drivers side of the car and see a drop of green liquid...

  14. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I wanted to see if someone here is the owner of the blacked out CTD. He was sporting black wheels, trim, emblems and paint. Well done! He was moving too quick to get a picture.

    The car now has tint on all the windows (35% Front/15% Rear) and added the Depo Smoked Side Marker Lens. Placed an order for GrafxWerks Front and Rear Bowtie Overlays (Metallic Polo Green). Once those are on, the identity will be complete.

    I have a 2014 Rainforest Green Metallic Cruze Diesel, and always thought the orange sidemarker lights looked absurd from the day I picked it up. So, tonight I ordered a set of sidemarkers from Klearz that I hope will look much better. He is making a green lens with smoke and pearl that should...

  20. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Looking to distinguish my Cruze TD from all the other Cruze's out on the roads. The only way people know its a diesel is if they can understand and see the small green badge on the rear left hand side or listen to the engine at idle. What are some ideas? I've been looking for license plate...
