    My plastic ice scraper scratched up my windshield. I have never had this happen before. I scraped my fingernail over the scratches and it catches. Can it be repaired cheaply? Are there any DIY kits for this? Now I am a bit weary scraping ice...

    Have any other users with this color cruze done this? Im looking for a vinyl (or whatever else would work) color that matches or comes close to matching ice blue metallic. Im not having any luck on ebay or amazon searching for this color so I am looking to see if anyone has done this with...

    I put 800 miles on my car last week in a 24hr period with the temperatures between -11F(-24C) and 4F(-15C) outside. When I stopped after the first 3 hours, noticed ice was building up on the exhaust pipe tip. At one point of my drive it was a good 8-9inch long piece of ice. Decided to grab a...

    heys guys, just curious on what temp the DIC should say "ice possible drive with care"? I bought a 12 cruze LT RS about a month and half ago and I have yet to see this message be displayed. I live in Western New York where it has been in the 20s during the early mornings. Could it be that I...

    I happened to be looking this afternoon at an eco cruze on the lot. Which has the same/similar front grill, air dam and airflow shutters as the diesel Crze. Clearance was 6-7" with the vehicle unoccupied. I don't know how that front end is supposed to withstand snow drifts, chunks of ice...

    I did a search but found threads relating to fog. I have not had any problems with my windshield fogging or being able to remove it. I noticed that while driving ice will accumulate on both sides of the windshield making it extremely difficult to see anything except for what's straight in...

    This story has a happy ending. I never had a car with any kind of directional control system, (eg stabilitrak). Traction control, ABS, sure, but never Stabilitrak. I was driving my '13 Cruze (1LT) down the expressway about a week and a half ago. We had some snow and ridiculously cold...

    That was the weather on my way home yesterday, three words...cruze is great. Wasn't sure how the car would ride in these conditions but it did a great job...very stable and the traction and stabilty controls work very nicely. Have to say that I have winter tires here north of montréal is not an...

    We had some icy rain the other day that made it hard to open my doors. I'd rather not break a handle. In the past, I've reconditioned my door seals with Vaseline. Mothers also makes a good vinyl/rubber re-conditioning compound. I would recommend it to keep your seals well conditioned and keep...

    Not sure where it happened but I was washing my car this weekend and noticed this nice dent/scratch someone left for me on my driver fender. It was either Walmart or Academy.

    Ice blue is not available on the website as an option for 2013 or 2014. Is it discontinued? I was thinking about getting it when my current lease was up.

    One week old and I am amazed how much nicer this car is over the 2011 Cruze LT I traded in was. I was never happy with the automatic transmission in that car. I think the fuel mileage will be much better.

    This is a picture of an ice lance that I believe has been forming everyday on my 365 mile daily drive. I have been averaging about 55mph in temperatures between -5f and 15f while averaging 50mpg on the DIC which is about 5-8mpg less then spring and summer averages. Now this particular ice trail...
